3.7 Only enable Windows-compatibility servers if absolutely necessary - Ensure file /etc/rc3.d/S90samba does NOT exist.


This item only applies to Solaris 9 systems. Solaris 9 now includes the popular Open Source Samba server for providing file and print services to Windows-based systems. This allows a Solaris system to act as a file or print server on a Windows network, and even act as a Domain Controller (authentication server) to older Windows operating systems. However, if this functionality is not required by the site, the service should be disabled.
