Windows 2003 and NFS setup?

Last Modified: 2013-12-02
I have a Windows 2003 R2 box and an AIX 5.2 box.  I need to move files from AIX  to  Windows 2003 .  I already have NFS setup on the AIX box and a mount point back to a Windows 2000 server that's working.  I'm trying to duplicate this on Windows 2003, so I can retire the Win2k server. I've a copy of SFU355EL_EN.exe on the Windows 2003 box.  If I understand correctly I need to install just the NFS client on Windows 2003. I've been reading some of the solutions for this setup in EE. One of them mentions the MS KB#324055, I'm using this KB as a guide.  If it's a poor guide please let me know. The command
msiexec /I C:\tmp\sfusetup.msi /qb addlocal="NFSClient" [sfudir="install path"] mentioned in the KB, causes the msi help screen that displays the switches and options to pop up.  I've extracted all the files
into c:\tmp.  Is there an error in the command string?

I've also ran the setup.exe command.  I'm asking for help with setting up the User Name Mapping? I'm not sure of how to set this up and this has always confused me. The user who creates the files on AIX has both an AIX and Windows account with Admin previlages on both.  If you need more info on this point, let me know.

Any other suggestions, pointers, arcticles, etc on how to set this up are welcome.
