You can do several things:
-Get the Solaris version of NIS (I don't know how much does it cost but it does cost) and go ahead.
-You can set the NIS+ server with level 0 security, or as Sun calls it "compatibility" mode.
-You can upgrade to Solaris 2.6 that has a native version of NIS

To transfer you maps you have to put your actual files to build the NIS maps and run the commands, depending if you use NIS or NIS+ in compatibility mode, to create the domain. One important exception should be pointed out: Solaris has the /etc/shadow file that keeps tha passwords of the users, you have to modify your passwd file and to create this shadow file before creating your domain.
   In Solaris you have to modify the /etc/nsswitch.conf file to say to the system which services are being used and in wich order.
