Can't read SMB sharepoint

I'm running FileMaker Server Advanced 12 on an Xserve under Snow Leopard Server. I need to access a Windows sharepoint mounted on the server's desktop using SMB so that I can copy over some XML files to the Documents folder in FileMaker Server.

I use Troi File to read the contents of the sharepoint folder into a list, then loop through it line by line and use Troi File to copy the XML files to the Documents folder. From there I can import into a FileMaker table.

When I run the script from a server-based FileMaker Pro client, the script works just fine. However, even though I have asked my IT people to give read/write access to user fmserver and group fmsadmin on the sharepoint, the script fails when it is run using a server-side script schedule.

Does anyone have any idea why this is not working properly? All suggestions gratefully received!
