Solaris as PDC

Just wondering:

Is it wise to have two OSOL boxes with one being a cifs kernel server and the other one a genuine samba & LDAP to serve as a PDC for the windows clients in the network?

Why not???? I suppose that this is quite reasonable solution, but why OSOL?? Why not Latest release of Solaris 10???

Because I just migrated two machines to OPenSolaris for their CIFS-support, another one as the NX server is only available (native) for Solaris and Linux, so why introduce a third OS in the network (DMZ running on OPenBSD)

"Because I just migrated two machines to OPenSolaris for their CIFS-support" What about???

Sorry, but I am missing a point why you are asking???

CIFS != Domain Controller!

Anyway, the question is, whether OpenSolaris is a good base to set up a domain controller. Other OS like FreeBSD are a nightmare if you dare to use them for this purpose... Smilie

I doubt OpenSolaris as a pdc is something commonly deployed. If configuring samba as a pdc under freeBSD is a nightmare, the same statement will likely apply to OpenSolaris.
