Windows 7: [NFS] permission issue

[NFS] permission issue

Hey guys,

Been toying around with some NFS shares hosted on a win2k8 r2 server and trying to share between mac osx and win xp/7 clients. Currently I'm only able to get it working anonymously. When I try to specify a user, group, or specific computer, I get access denied. I'm using Active Directory as my Identity mapping source and I've seemingly set everything up correctly following Microsoft's technet article(s). I've gone through a few hours of research and trial and error before deciding to create a post anywhere.

Ideally, would like to get rid of anonymous logon for obvious reasons and really secure down some of these shares. Most of the support I find is for win2k3 and some of it doesn't seem to apply to 2k8 r2. I've tried specifying a User Name Mapping server as well under Services for Network File Systems but even anonymous doesn't even work when I try that. Read that I need to specify that server in the .maphosts file which I also cannot locate in 2k8 r2, if it exists. Any help or direction is greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

*Note- this is only a test environment right now, nothing is live. Testing NFS out as a future alternative only.

sounds like a permission issue make sure they are also added into the security tab which is under the properties of the folder u are trying to share

Thanks for the quick response, and they are added under Security as well. Sorry, I left that out.

Yes, that's all setup correctly I believe. What should I have, if anything more in this NFS Share Permissions area? Am I supposed to be able to add Active Directory users and groups to this? Because I cannot, which would in turn be my problem

P.S. I have added actual user machines to this list, which it lets me, but they still get denied access.

Thanks again for all of your help and time.
