[Samba] writable shares between solaris and windows

One of our daily jobs needs to process a lot of files on a solaris
server and dump the files onto a windows server.  We currently use
sharity to accomplish this.  However, the performance becomes worse when
the files get larger.  We want to find another approach to do this.  The
reason we didnt use samba was that very few users have unix accounts and
they need to have write permission to the share.  We dont want to create
unix accounts just for this.  To use ADS, we need to install and
kerberos for this, we dont use kerberos right now.  Is it worth the
effort to configure kerberos for this?  Is there any better way?
