As someone already replied, you need to disable the vendor provided
# svcadm disable samba
Then set up SysV init scripts for your new, custom installation of
Samba or something via SMF.
Alternately, Sunfreeware or Blastwave may have pre-packaged Samba
installs that include these scripts.
I prefer sticking with the vendor-provided packages when possible (hand
built packages don't scale administratively). The latest Sun version
of Samba is 3.0.37 for Solaris 10 and I believe they have a refresh due
