Share it out with NFS then configure Windows Services for UNIX

Other alternative is to configure Samba on AIX & share it out that way.

i want to ask you ... i have AIX 6.1 ... this version contain samba built in or i must download it to AIX if yes how i can download it ? – Mohammad AL-Rawabdeh Sep 29 '10 at 6:01

If you want to use Samba on your AIX system then this article will give you information on how to install it from the expansion pack. Once you've got Samba working you can share the directory from AIX and mount it as a network drive on the Windows 2003 server.
