[root@server1 ~] zfs set share=name=servershare,path=/datapool1,prot=smb datapool1

Turn on sharing using zfs :

[root@server1 ~] zfs set sharesmb=on datapool1

Turn on your smb server :

[root@server1 ~] svcadm enable -r smb/server

[root@server1 ~] smbadm enable-user user1

Edit pam to allow for smb authentication (add line to end of file)

[root@server1 ~] vi /etc/pam.conf
