I have a SBS 2003 environment and a SBS 2008 environment. I need to transfer files from the 2003 SBS side to the SBS 2008 side (different domains). I can connect to the SBS 2008 side from the SBS 2003 side using the UNC path, but I must provide credentials each time. The application that is attempting to send the files does not have the capability to execute a command prior to initiating the file transfer. I also understand that I am not able to create trust relationships in a SBS environment. What would you suggest to accomplish this task?
Thanks in advance,

then log on using that user on the computer you are using the program from

Credentials each time?  How many times are you going to need to transfer files? once?
Do both servers have the same local domain names?

You could use a different file copy protocol such as FTP.

The system will be transferring files at the rate of at least once every hour. I am waiting on feedback from the two software providers on each side to determine if the batch file solution I created will be acceptable.
Brendanmeyer: Will you solution work with two different domains. I would think that I would still need to provide credentials each time in the form of <domain name>\<username>.
Adhdfx: The servers have different local domain names.

The customer decided that they no longer had a need to transfer files between the two systems. I would like to award balance of the points equally between the two respondents.

As per my last comment, the customer no longer had a need to transfer files between the two systems. Therefore I am splitting the points between the two repsondents.
