1.Do you Windows 2003 R2 ?
Server for NIS is the component of Microsoft Identity Management for UNIX (IDMU) that is of primary importance to Network File System (NFS) authentication, and it can be installed only on a Windows Server 2003 R2 domain controller. Server for NIS cannot be installed on a member server. To install Server for NIS, follow these steps:

Open Add/Remove Programs, and then click the Add/Remove Windows Components button to start the Windows Components Wizard (as shown in Figure 4 in the Installing Services for NFS section of this white paper).

Click Active Directory Services, and then click Details.

Click Highlight Identity Management for UNIX, and then click Details to open the Identity Management for UNIX dialog box (shown in Figure 6).

Click Administration Components and Server for NIS and follow the prompts to install the NIS components of Windows Server 2003 R2. You will need to have the Windows Server 2003 R2 installation media available

This is how you need to install Identity Management for UNIX components

To install Identity Management for UNIX components
Open Server Manager.
In the Roles section, in the list of common tasks, click Add Role Services.
On the Select Role Services page of the Add Role Services Wizard, select the Identity Management for UNIX role services you want to install, and then click Next.

If the wizard prompts you to install any other role services required by Identity Management for UNIX components, click Yes.
After verifying your selections on the Confirm Installation Selections page, click Install

I am running server 2003 R2.  Not exactly sure if I'm opening 'Server Manager' correctly...I can open 'Manage your server'...is that correct?

I tried using command line to install...but command not recognized...

Any ideas?

I may have bigger issues here...?
