How do I sync passwords between Samba and Solaris?

Hi, everyone.

I have recently installed Samba version 3.0.23d on my Solaris 10 box. I am attempting to sync Samba's passwords with the UNIX passwords on the system. I read about using a pam module that is included with the samba tar called The instructions say to issue the make command to create the module but no such file is ever created.

Is anyone familiar with this module? Is there a better alternative to syncing passwords between Samba and Solaris?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

vfs_aio_fork - implement async I/O in Samba vfs SYNOPSIS
vfs objects = aio_fork DESCRIPTION
This VFS module is part of the samba(7) suite. The aio_fork VFS module enables async I/O for Samba on platforms where the system level Posix AIO interface is insufficient. Posix AIO can suffer from severe limitations. For example, on some Linux versions the real-time signals that it uses are broken under heavy load. Other systems only allow AIO when special kernel modules are loaded or only allow a certain system-wide amount of async requests being scheduled. Systems based on glibc (most Linux systems) only allow a single outstanding request per file descriptor. To work around all these limitations, the aio_fork module was written. It uses forked helper processes instead of the internal Posix AIO interface to create asynchronousity for read and write calls. It has no parameters, it will create helper processes when async requests come in as needed. Idle helper processes will be removed every 30 seconds. This module is stackable. EXAMPLES
Straight forward use: [cooldata] path = /data/ice vfs objects = aio_fork VERSION
This man page is correct for version 4.0.0 of the Samba suite. AUTHOR
The original Samba software and related utilities were created by Andrew Tridgell. Samba is now developed by the Samba Team as an Open Source project similar to the way the Linux kernel is developed. Samba 4.0 06/17/2014 VFS_AIO_FORK(8)
