Hello BSDfan666,

Windows Server 2003 most certainly does support NFS.

File and Print Services: Microsoft Services for the network file system (NFS) in Windows Server 2003 R2 includes everything you need to share files between UNIX and Windows systems, manage file security from Windows using Active Directory accounts, and manage file and print services across Windows and UNIX platforms. The following components are included:

Mapping server


NFS client

NFS server


Server for NFS authentication

Anyway I was hoping not to have to setup additional file services to do this.


Again, sorry.. but perhaps you should consider using something other than SMB+AD?
Would you have any suggestions? I'm open to alternatives. Authenticating against active directory users would be required.

Thanks again for your help on this.
