I expect to be giving idmap_nss a try in the next week or so.  I'll let you know how it works out.

	About two months ago I actually tried setting up an enviornment in vmware with samba plus using active directory RFC 2307 schema extensions to get username information mapped properly between multiple nfs and samba servers.
	I failed because I think documentation at that time using idmap_nss was lacking. I found lots of winbind howtos and documentation, but very little regarding what I wanted to do. I would definately use the latest samba (3.0.25+), even though installing it on solaris is a nightmare, you'll be better off in the long run.
	Has anyone successfully done this? I got everything working including kerberos and joining the domains, except for a proper smb.conf file.
