Moving the data is the easy part.

The problem here is that currently SMB runs on the 5.3 box which is
also where NIS runs, and people authenticate from there.

The ZFS appliance is going to be the new home for SMB but it does not
have a native authentication system and seems to want a pretty
elaborate one, not something nice and simple like the Linux Samba
