[NFS] permission issues


Question

fcsber

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.

Have you had a look here? It looks pretty complete and I am sure that you will find what it is that you are looking for!

There are a few negative comments from people at the end of the article but I am sure that you will find something useful in the piece.

Yes, first place I looked/followed. Still running into issues after following that unfortunately. I'm assuming it's something fairly simple that I missed, just hoping to find someone with some experience that might be able to point me in the right direction.

Thank you though :)
