Mount Windows share on Solaris

Hi All. What I am trying to do is mount a Windows share drive on a Solaris 2.6 box. I know that sambamount does something similar to this, but research shows that this does not work on Solaris, only Linux, etc.

There has got to be a way to do this!!!! Please Help!.
Thanks a lot.

Samba works fine on Solarsi, go to the following site and download the samba binary for your System.

Yes, i know that Samba works fine for allowing Windows to mount to Solaris drives and such, but does smbmount work on Solaris? From the research that I have done, everyone says no. However, I haven't actually tried yet. Have you successfully used smbmount to mount a Windows Share drive to a Solaris box? Thanks again.

Solaris has WABI (Windows Application Binary Interface, if I remember correctly), which allows to start windows programs.
Don't know if it is still supported/shipped/bundled with Solaris, but worth a try.

I have used wabi with SCO + Novell + win95 a few years ago,
it works fine. I am not sure that people still use wabi these days.

I used samba with Linux + win9x/ME, no problem. I have not try it with Solaris. I think it should worke if have all the latest pathes apply to Solaris.

there's a product called sharity (www.obdev.at), I've only tried the demo, it appears to work.

Thanks ecw and ahoffmann. I will review and take a look. Hopefully these aren't too difficult or time consuming to configure....What I'd really like is a binary (like smbmount) that you pass the IP,location, and credentials to and bam, its mounted!

you always can write a script using smbclient to put and get files from any share. Not exactly "bam" but close to.

true. but if I am going to go that far, I would just right a script using FTP. no need for samba. Thanks.
