  • Problems accessing an NFS share on Win2K8 server

    I need to create an NFS share on a Win2K8 SP1 server. I installed the NFS server component on the server and configured one of the folders as an NFS share with the following details:

    Folder: E:\Backup_E
    Share Name: backup
    Encoding: ANSI
    Allow Anonymous -> Checked
    Permissions: All Machines, Read/Write, Root access allowed
    Network Path: SERVER01:/backup

    I then loaded the NFS client on my Win7 workstation and Mapped a network drive to "server01:/backup" and when I access the mapped drive, all I get is the drive with no files in it. There ARE files in this folder on the server.

    I tried to create a new txt file in the folder but was presented with a dialog box stating that I need permission to do so. I then added the Guest & Everone accounts with Modify security to the folder E:\Backup_E but that did not work.

    Does anyone have any idea on how to get NFS shares working on Win 2K8? Thanks.

    Why are you checking NFS share from within a Microsoft OS? Don't you have a Linux/Unix machine ?

      I'm testing the setup with a known OS before I pass it over to the Unix guys. I still can't access its contents. Thanks.

        I doubt this set-up is the right one. You should test access to NFS share from a Linux/Unix system, not from another Windows.
        If you don't have one available, install a virtual machine on Windows 7 and some Linux distro inside.

          I have a linux device which requires files to be downloaded from an NFS share on the Win2K8 server. I tried setting up the NFS share and I tried accessing the share from the device but I cannot see the files in the NFS share.

          Thus I am using my Win7 notebook to test the NFS setup and it too cannot see the files in the NFS share.

          Thus the Win2K8 NFS server is not functioning correctly!

            Has anyone had a successful installation of NFS on WinSvr2K8? I might have to try a 3rd party product if Windows can't do it.

              Can you mount it from a Linux system?
              Anyway, please review:
