Is it possible to get file names longer than 31 characters on a Windows Storage Server 2003 NAS device?

I know I had to go through lots of registry changes to get this on the Windows 2003 server but now they are looking for a NAS solution.

Depends on the NAS device. If you have access to it's registry you can do the same changes as you did to the server. I doubt you have access to the registry, though. This should be published in the documentation of the NAS though, it should say something like "Compatible to MAC filesystem".
