KB-2517: Centrify Samba fails to install on Solaris 9

Centrify DirectControl ,   Centrify DirectControl Plugins ,

Applies to:
All versions of Centrify Samba on Solaris 9 platform.
When installing and running Centrify, the following error occurs:
WARNING: Could not find Patch Check (PCA) script.
If you want to check this computer for missing required patches, please copy
all PCA files (or pca directory) next to the and rerun this shell
Do you want to continue? [Y] :
Using (Y) smbd: fatal: version `SUNW_1.22' not found (required by
file /opt/centrify/samba/sbin/smbd) smbd: fatal: open failed: No such file or directory
Please input Centrify Samba's path : ./adcheck
The Solaris server is completely patched, is there any reason for this?
This can happen if the wrong package for Centrify Samba is chosen. Centrify provides 2 packages - one for both Solaris 8 and Solaris 9, and the other for Solaris 10.
In the above case, the user chose the Centrify Samba package meant for Solaris 10. Choosing the right package resolved the issue.
Additional info:
1) For Solaris 10 or above, install Centrify Samba for ZFS build on sol10(sparc and x86)
2) For Solaris 9 or below, install Centrify Samba for UFS build on sol8(sparc)  or sol9(x86).
So each platform corresponds to a specific unique packet.
A) If customers install ZFS CDC-Samba build on sol10 on Solaris 9 or below machine, they will encounter CDC-samba failed to install as seen above.
B) If customers install UFS CDC-Samba (build on sol8(sparc) or sol9(x86)) on Solaris 10 or above machine, they will see an error where "CDC-samba can not support ZFS"
