Samba not working after Solaris-patching

If you use the built-in Samba in Solaris 10, you might have discovered
that after patching Solaris lately, Samba is not working any more.

Well this is an easy fix, but I can’t understand why Oracle hasn’t fixed it yet:

1) cp /etc/sfw/private/* /etc/samba/private/
2) cp /etc/sfw/smb.conf /etc/samba/
3) svcadm clear samba
4) svcadm restart samba

Oracle decided to move smb.conf and the private-files for Samba from
/etc/sfw/ to /etc/samba. Not a bad idea, but why on earth don’t they
copy over the old files if they exist?

This is just a stupid bug…
