I don't see any reason it shouldn't work, you might want to just give it
You're already running SAS from a networked fileserver, Samba is pretty
much a functional equivalent for WinNT/2K in this regard. You're not
running SAS from the Solaris box, you're hosting it there. Though fnord
knows, the wrath of SAS/Legal may descend on you for this....
Any reason you can't just try (and report back the results)?
