This would seem to be a regular problem on openindiana, have you by any 
chance thought to trying an internet search ? 'libiconv openindiana' 
might be a good search term.

> I got a copy of the latest samba build from the samba site, v4.1.11. I compiled and installed it with the default options on OpenIndiana 151.1.8. I previously had samba installed from the openindiana repository but this stopped working after my windows folks made security changes to AD. I suspect the older version of samba in the repo 3.5.21- lacks certain functionality to enable it to successfully integrate with AD using winbind. Because no matter what I tried after the changes in AD I could no longer assign AD users and groups to my ZFS file system permissions and as a result seemless integration stopped working.
