Solaris box to AD,Exchange server 2003

Forgive me if this question has been asked before, but I am trying to add a solaris box to server 2003, it is an active directory and exchange server. I have succeeded in adding it to network in general -- meaning I can access the server and xp files over the network.

But what I want to do is to be able to use an exchange account and log into solairs box under the domain. How can I do this?

not sure you can treat AD as a LDAP store for users without adding schemas but there are products that can integrate UNIX systems with AD -- like Vintella Authentication Services from quest.

There's some work involved, but you can use winbind similar to what you'd do in Linux, search for Solaris in:

Chapter 24. Winbind: Use of Domain Accounts

try google for AD4unix. It's a small utility for AD. In the past I configured AD 2003 for AIX systems and it was working well.
