Are you typing the correct password?
Does the Solaris machine allow login using passwords?
Does the Solaris machines allow root login through SSH (I'm guessing it's disabled by default as it is in Linux)?

Check your SSH deamon config file, on Linux it's in /etc/ssh/sshd_config but I don't recall where it is on Solaris, and you should find where to enable login with passwords (though I think it's on by default).
You will also where to enable root login -- never do this on a real machine that is exposed to the internet though.

At the very same location.

Solaris does indeed forbids root login from ssh by default.

There is another file, /etc/default/login, which restricts root to log in only on the console.

In any case, I would recommend to leave the ssh and login configuration as they are, create and use a regular user account for remote login, and use su, sudo, pfexec or similar to get administrative rights.
