Samba client mounting on more recent Solaris 10 installs


I am unable mount a Windows share as a Solaris 10 client. I've searched, and everything I've found is not applicable, in particular,

* network/smb/client service does not exist
* smbutil binary does not exist

This system is a global zone running -

Code:
                      Solaris 10 10/09 s10s_u8wos_08a SPARC
           Copyright 2009 Sun Microsystems, Inc.  All Rights Reserved.
                        Use is subject to license terms.
                           Assembled 16 September 2009

                  Solaris 10 8/11 (Update 10) Patchset applied.
I also applied the Samba patch from the April 2014 CPU for fun - 119757-31 is installed, and smbclient Version is 3.6.22.

The packages are installed:
Code:
# pkginfo | grep SUNWsmb
system      SUNWsmbac                        samba - A Windows SMB/CIFS fileserver for UNIX (client)
system      SUNWsmbar                        samba - A Windows SMB/CIFS fileserver for UNIX (Root)
system      SUNWsmbau                        samba - A Windows SMB/CIFS fileserver for UNIX (Usr)
Although SUNWsmbac only has 3 files:
Code:
# pkginfo -l SUNWsmbac
   PKGINST:  SUNWsmbac
      NAME:  samba - A Windows SMB/CIFS fileserver for UNIX (client)
  CATEGORY:  system
      ARCH:  sparc
   VERSION:  11.10.0,REV=2005.01.08.05.16
   BASEDIR:  /
    VENDOR:  Oracle Corporation
      DESC:  samba - A Windows SMB/CIFS fileserver for UNIX (client)
    PSTAMP:  sfw10-patch20140116042001
  INSTDATE:  Jun 03 2014 11:15
   HOTLINE:  Please contact your local service provider
    STATUS:  completely installed
     FILES:        3 installed pathnames
                   3 shared pathnames
                   3 directories
I am able to use smbclient to browse the Samba share in question, but I want to mount it permanently (or at least til reboot).

Using mount returns "Operation not applicable":

Code:
# mount -F smbfs //servername/public /mnt
mount: Operation not applicable to FSType smbfs
# mount -F cifs //servername/public /mnt
mount: Operation not applicable to FSType cifs
So .. how is one supposed to mount a Samba share as a Solaris 10 client these days?

Smbfs is not supporting Solaris 10. You might want to switch to Solaris 11.
