Here this might help: Our Full procedure from both Windows and Linux Side
Network File Share “NFS” File sharing
This applies to setting up Windows 2003, Windows 2008 server to setup Unix accessible file or folder shares.
1. Install the NFS role, or on W2k3, install Windows Network file sharing service.
2. Edit the NFS Configuration:
a. In Windows 2003 this is done via the Network file sharing GUI located under administrative tools
b. In Windows 2008 this can be done under the “Share and storage Management” GUI or under “Edit Network File sharing configuration” wizard
3. Editing the NFS configuration
a. Selecting Identity Mapping Solution: Only required if you intend to setup a Active Directory Authentication, or User Name Mapping Authentication.
Note: I was unable to use the AD authentication on our network due to the requirement of a 2008 functional level Domain.
Note: I was unable to use a User Name Mapping Server, without a Win2K3 Server, the only version that supports the User Name Mapping Server service.
b. Setup Domain Authorization: This is not required at this point because our domain would not support AD authentication
c. Open firewall ports: Was not required on our network.. May be required to traverse networks.
d. Use NFS to Share Folders: This is the main part of the setup.
i. Click “Provision a Shared Folder Wizard” in the right pane.
ii. Browse to the Drive / folder you wish to share
iii. Select Next, select “yes” to change NTFS permissions
iv. Add the “Everyone” user account and provide the needed NFS permissions
Note: Everyone is not provided access to the NFS share you are creating, it only will allow the specific UID, GID account specified under the “Allow anonymous access” we will setup
Select “Next” and check the NFS share name.
Select “Next” and check “Allow anonymous access” Click “Edit” to the right of the permissions box, and set Full control.
Click “Add” and enter either the FQDN or the IP address of the Unix Host that needs to access this share. Ensure you give read write and root access rights.
Click Next and Next again to skip the Filter and Quota sections.
Go back to the Share and Storage Management console and refresh the display. The new NFS share should appear at the bottom. (in Win2k3 you will see the share listed under the NFS GUI.
Right click the share and select properties. Click the permissions TAB and select NFS permissions. Select the client unix computer / server that you entered and enter the Anonymous UID GID provided by the Unix department for that server. This is usually a 4 digit number and select Ok.
That’s it.. have them test the mount to this share from the Unix server side.
As root create new directory to mount nfs share:
Change permissions on new directory
# chmod 777 /mymount
Verify mount is accessible: (Using IP is recommended, but hostnames are acceptable)
# showmount -e 220.127.116.11
Note: This should show something like
Next mount file system:
# mount -t nfs 18.104.22.168:/sharedMount /mymount
Note: If you are unable to mount at this point check window's sharing permissions
Note: If you are unable to cd to filesystem but it does mount then check window's directory permissions for specified user.
--Just as a heads up our window's team handles windows share - I asked for their procedure. Hopefully this helps ya out some.
