Use the UNC path, and set the remote user and password fields of the client object in nwadmin to be a user that has rights to those unc paths...nsrexecd on windows runs as the system account, which doesn't have rights to the remote share.
Oh, and drive letters mapped to a unc are not persistent when a given user
isn't logged in, and aren't presented to the system account anyways.

Subject: Windows equiv to backing up via NFS mounts?
Forgive my overwhelming ignorance, but I need a brief
workaround for backing up some CIFS only filesystems on
a EMC Celerra until I can add NDMP service for these.
Can one remote mount a CIFS share on a Windows server
and back it up as it were local - ala backing NFS mounts?
