Auth Solaris with Samba

Hi All ...

I would like to know if I can auth my users with Samba

I explain myself :

A Solaris 10 Sparc station, with Samba Server install

I connect Samba with an LDAP server to auth users ( here every works fine )

My problem : I want to auth my users with samba when they connect to Solaris CDE banner

Is it possible or not ?

I'm not sure about what means authorize users with Samba, but why not directly authenticating these users with the LDAP directory ?
