As I recall, Win2008 was the end of the line for Samba-on-Solaris10 for
us.  We adopted a product called Centrify which included its own
AD-binding / kerberos authentication mechanisms for Solaris 10, and their
own build of Samba that worked with it.

That's been working perfectly with AD 2008, and I recommend it highly.
