It's a MS SQL database service. Our standard is to have it run as Local System.

You could run the service on the windows 2k3 box under another username thats  allowed to access  samba. As long as the usernames and password match i dont see any issues.

I have a service running on a Windows Server 2003 box that I want to write to a Samba share running on Solaris 10. The Samba is not a DC. How can I give access to the Local System user on the Windows box without making the share writeable to any other user or system?
