Hello Phil,

disclaimer - I don't have any smb experience here, this comment is solely from 

My understanding was that Samba was not necessary with Solaris 11.

I had though that smb file support was built into the kernel, just like NFS.

Just wondering if Samba provides something that the native OS (Sol 11) doesn't?
