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.

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.

can you create a file on the shared folder from windows? Have you done the users' mapping between unix and windows users?
