I have a solaris 9 box networked in a windows domain. From the solaris 9 box I tried to mount some windows shares using the "smbmount"  command and all I recieved was "the command can not be found". The other mount commands work fine why not the network share command.

smbmount is part of Samba - Which is not part of Solaris

Get samba from http://www.sunfreeware.com

Oops, before you do that, check that the smb commands aren't just missing from your PATH - Check if /usr/local/samba exists and is in your PATH
