IBM AIX: Open directory pointing to Windows server while specifying credentials?

IBM AIX: Open directory pointing to Windows server while specifying credentials?

IBM AIX: Open directory pointing to Windows server while specifying credentials?

(OP)
We have a unique issue where we want our IBM server to open a directory on a Windows server while passing credentials (username and password) that are different than the logged-in IBM user; right now it passes the credentials along and works if the Windows server has the same user credentials.

So for instance, we have a /QNTC/share set up that points to a Windows server IP address 1.2.3.4/folder, but when user BOB tries to open that share, it fails auth because there's no BOB on the Windows server. I haven't figured out yet how to have QNTC store credentials (or access different ones somehow).

Also I was looking at the mount command, and it appears it can create drive v that points to an IP with credentials (through cifs?), but I'm not quite sure that will work or how to format it exactly.
