NFS file permissions for new files

I have a file server that shares with Windows clients via SMB and Linux clients via NFS. When a Windows user creates a new file on the share it uses group/user permissions for new files that are set in the smb.conf file, when a Linux/NFS client creates a new file it is given a different set of permissions. Is there any way to set what group/user permissions are used for NFS in a similar way as is done with Samba?

My NFS shares are exported using:

/mnt/share 192.168.1.0/24(rw,no_root_squash,subtree_check)

All users and groups for Windows and Linux come from an Active Directory.

Hi,
did you consider using umask ?

... or let your Linux clients do smbmount ?

I figured that I'd have to add a mask somewhere, the question should probably have been worded more like "what configuration (file) do I add a mask to?"

And no, I prefer to use NFS for Linux clients.

Does your company store data on premises, off site, in the cloud, or a combination of these? If you answered “yes”, you need a data backup recovery plan that fits each and every platform. Watch now as as Percona teaches us how to build agile data backup recovery plan.

You should modify the user's profiles on the client side. Which file to modify depends on the shell used, in ksh it's e.g. ~ /.profile , in csh e.g. ~/..cshrc and ~/.login,  in bash e.g. ~/.bashrc, ~/.profile, ~/.bash_login or ~/.bash_profile.
The 'env' method works as well.
Of course you could change the umask globally in /etc/profile.
I wouldn't recommend that.

To ~/.bashrc I added:
  umask 002
to bring the default permissions from 666 to 664.
