well, you could take the commands and run them manually and forget about automating it!

ok, if not mistaken you can do

- to start

/etc/rc3.d/S90samba start

OR

 /usr/sfw/sbin/smbd -D
 /usr/sfw/sbin/nmbd -D

- to stop

/etc/rc3.d/S90samba stop

OR

pkill smbd
pkill nmbd

I am not sure why ! I have it on my system and you can simply add it to your system. You can simply create with runing

echo '#!/sbin/sh
#
# Copyright (c) 2001 by Sun Microsystems, Inc
# All rights reserved.
#
#ident  "@(#)samba      1.1     01/09/24 SMI"

case "$1" in
start)
        [ -f /etc/sfw/smb.conf ] || exit 0

        /usr/sfw/sbin/smbd -D
        /usr/sfw/sbin/nmbd -D
        ;;
stop)
        pkill smbd
        pkill nmbd
        ;;
*)
        echo "Usage: $0 { start | stop }"
        exit 1
        ;;
esac
exit 0' > /etc/rc3.d/S90samba

chown root:sys /etc/rc3.d/S90samba
chmod 744 /etc/rc3.d/S90samba

solaris is very popular OS and widely used as web server, mail server, directory / LDAP server, etc.

Many free and commercial S/W packages are developed and available on it.

solaris runs on sparc and x86 platforms and recently Sun released it as open source ( Open Solaris)
