"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I get a Windows dialog box that states.

"Windows cannot access the speicifed drive, path or file. You may not have the approriate permissions to access the item."

the NFS attributes on the server show RWX on owner group and user.

Yes, I can create a file from windows on that mapped drive. I have just mapped administrator to root and them the main group from unix to the  domain users group on the server.
