We would like to have a particular program on SERVER1 access a shared drive on SERVER2 without having the need to be logged into SERVER1. SERVER1 has a program that always runs (as a service) that polls a share folder on SERVER2 periodically and performs tasks on that data when it finds it.

Is there a way to do this? We don't want to have to logon to SERVER1 each time we perform a maintenance reboot.

Thank you

Turns out this software could be programmed with an AD account and we are all set.
