DNS domains and NT Domains are two very different things.  The NT Domain
is an "authentication domain" and is defined by the existence of a Domain
Controller (an authentication server).

As for specifying a share on AIX without installing Samba... You don't.  
The Share concept is part of the SMB protocol, so you would need an SMB 
server (eg. Samba) if you wanted to access a local "share".  On the other 
hand, you can just use normal Java file I/O to access local files.
