Solaris 11 added a CIFS server -  I don't know if it is openindiana.   
check the "svcs -a" command to make sure that there isn't a preexisting 
CIFS or samba server already running.

FYI The latest Solaris 10 + updates has samba 3.5.x or 3.6.x . I had 
issues with older samba packages from sunfreeware.com and opencsw  with 
64-bit support, LDAP compatibility and ZFS support.
