Windows services for NFS - Nfs mount question


I am trying to mount several nfs mounts to my windows 7 box {64bit}.      I have installed Services for Network File System (NFS) and I am able
to actually mount the shares.  

-----------------------------------------------------

 mount \\someserver\vol\someNFSshare y:

The command completed successfully.

C:\>y:
Access is denied.

----------------------------

 The problem that I am having is...I receive an "access denied" error after trying to change to this drive.    

The nfs mounts are being served off of a Netapp filer, and I have set the export to allow root/read/write access for my machine.    If I run showmount
I can see the entry is properly set.    I am logged into the machine as a domain user {local admin}.  

I suspect the problem is caused by user mapping, but I am not entirely sure how to map this.    I looked at the properties within Services for NFS...  I could only find references pointing to a dc.    Is there a way to map this locally?

Any insight into this would be appreciated.    Tx.

I'm not sure if the WinServ2008 version has the MAPADMIN command line tool, but here is the help page from WinServ2003R2

Difficult question to answer.  Meaning give the criteria, what I want to do may not be possible.
