Force them to fix the DB problem. For many reasons, not the least of which is controlling security policy, I do not support local logins accessing domain shares.

I tried to add permissions for a computer\user account to a share and was unable to.

Now, looking at the other side of the problem. Just what is the problem with the DB? It sounds (with the limited info given) thaqt there is a possibility it is a permissions problem. review all of the permissions for the DB and see if you can modify them to allow the users access the db using their domain logins instead of local logins. That is a win/win because you now have access over your security policy and the users have transparent access to their shares. not to mention getting rid of the headache of when a user changes their local login password and have to relogin to all the shares.
Maybe not the answer you are looking for but this is the "best practices" answer.
