CIFS in Solaris u9?

CIFS in Solaris u9?

CIFS in Solaris u9?

Need some assistance here... I have LDAP and Kerberos working on a Solaris u9 box.  Works great.

My next item is to get some sharing going with Windows.  I am not a fan of Samba, but will resort to it if I have to.   However, my understanding is that CIFS won't be available in the kernel until sometime in 2011.  In the mean time, I have found reference to two packages:  SUNWsmbs and SUNWsmbskr.  However, I cannot find these in any repository.  I cannot even find the Sol10 Express that is also referenced.

Can someone point me in the right direction or provide a link where I can download these guys?  I would love to get Windows sharing going without Samba.

Mrfixit.... I got that link, but it appears I am missing the sun packages to install the CIFS client.  I cannot find where I can download those packages
