I need to have an AS\400 access a shared folder on a 2003 SBS server, what do I need to do on the SBS server to allow the AS\400 to see this shared folder?

What is an AS\400 doing in the small business space would be my first question... just because that's not something that you would normally see.  Is the AS\400 part of another domain?  If not, then you need to join it to the SBS's domain.  If it is already part of a domain, then you may be out of luck because SBS will not support trusts.

Well....the AS\400 was there first running there tracking/inventory app accessible by customers via the web to track their shippments (it's a trucking company)....the SBS was installed for more interoffice stuff e-mail, file sharing, printing, remote access........I take care of the SBS side and another company takes care of the AS\400 side, the AS\400 guy seems to be having difficulty getting to a shared drive on the SBS so I figured I would try to help and check into it on my own. I found some tech notes on the web that say he should be able to get to a shared drive on an NT domain but nothing about an SBS domain....

An SBS domain IS an NT domain.  The domain structure is controlled by Windows Server 2003 which is an NT technology.

What kind of info is the share providing?

I know it's an NT domain, the reason I said there was no mention of an SBS domain is because certain things are very particular when it comes to SBS.....anyway.....the share is images of Manifests and Bill of Lading documents that the trucking company scans in and now wants to give there customers the ability to view  via the app running on the AS\400.....

The only things that are very particular about SBS domains is that SBS must have control of all FSMO roles... this shouldn't at all cause any issue with an AS\400 machine needing to get access to a share... unless the AS\400 is a domain controller itself for another domain.  It would have to join the SBS's domain in order to have access.

Actually... I take that back... it may not have to join the domain... but it would need a domain account that can get access.
