Samba service not starting

I have Solaris-10. On one of the zone, I am not able to start samba service, while configuration looks fine. Can somebody have a look at it ?
HTML Code:
root@prt_oradb03:/# svcs -a svc:/network/samba:default
svcs: -a ignored when used with arguments.
STATE          STIME    FMRI
maintenance    11:35:16 svc:/network/samba:default
root@prt_oradb03:/# svcs -xv svc:/network/samba:default
svc:/network/samba:default (SMB file server)
 State: maintenance since Tue Feb 05 11:35:16 2013
Reason: Start method failed repeatedly, last exited with status 1.
   See: http://sun.com/msg/SMF-8000-KS
   See: man -M /usr/share/man -s 1m smbd
   See: man -M /usr/share/man -s 4 smb.conf
   See: /var/svc/log/network-samba:default.log
Impact: This service is not running.

Maybe lacks environment settings at the place/point where it is launched. Often a simple wrapper can fix that.

PHP Code:
