Steve, I apologize. I re-read the entire thread and I see what you are 
asking now. I misunderstood on my first read-through. I read it to be 
you were unable to create a share on Samba. I now see that you're trying 
to do so from Windows. I do not believe that is possible since my 
understanding of creating a share involves changing your smb.conf then 
restarting the Samba services.

If you are looking to automate this, would SWAT work with Samba 4?
