We need to relocate our WSUS database to a network share (Samba no Kerberos, so it needs a username & pass). Ordinarily to access the share I would map it as a network drive, however since this is a server and needs to run without a user logged on, I can't figure out how to map/mount the drive.

So how do you map a drive using the Windows System account, so that you don't need a logged on user?

Is iSCSI the only way?

Info: using Samba 3.x & Windows 2008 x86
