[Samba] samba with AD help.

This reminded me of something:

Solaris is bundled with Kerberos.   However, with sunfreeware samba you may
have also installed Kerberos packages from sun freeware.  Assuming the PATH
is let for /usr/local/bin:/usr/local/sbin:$PATH and LD_LIBRARY_PATH is set
/usr/local/lib:....  you should be using the sunfreeware versions of
software rather than the sun versions.

I don't know if sunfreeware Kerberos uses the same config files as sun
Kerberos-  which means you may be have not configured the correct files.

On a related note, 

Sunfreeware samba uses /usr/local/etc/smb.conf  (or something close to that)
by default.
The solaris bundled samba uses /etc/sfw/smb.conf

If you type "which testparm" are you running the correct testparm?
When you run "testparm -v" is it finding the correct smb.conf?

Or maybe you already sym linked your smb.conf file.
