Oh shoot, my bad. I copy-pasted your example without looking deeper.
It should be name-service-cache and name-services (at least it's in
Solaris 10 and OpenSolaris; where did you get the -switch - Sol11?):

# svcs -a | grep name-ser
online         2011     svc:/milestone/name-services:default
online         2011     svc:/system/name-service-cache:default

Among other things that bite people are NWAM for networking auto
config magic (vs. static config via good old files), which can
replace the /etc/nsswitch.conf file according to the profile it
thinks currently applies to you. Even if not, validate what is
in your current copy of /etc/nsswitch.conf file.
