Have a look at some of the LDAP stuff for connecting Solaris to  
OpenLDAP.  At a first guess, I'd say either a) there's no proxy user  
(Solaris proxies to the LDAP server) or b) it's an issue with the hash  
type being used by the OD server, c) schema issues.

Another tactic: snoop the connect to see what's being passed over the  

I had the same issue with Solaris to an odd-ball schema'd OpenLDAP--I  
still haven't resolved it, as I need to make schema mods and some  
other stuff has gotten in the way.

Good luck--
