cannot access NFS share on Cellera from Server 2008 R2

I am having problems accessing a NFS export on an EMC NX4. I have created the export on the NX4 and can access the NFS export from a VMware server without any issues.

Now I am trying to access the NFS export from a Server 2008 R2 server. I have added the IP address of the 2008 server on the NX4 to allow read/write access.

On the 2008 server, I installed Services for NFS. I have verified that the client for NFS service is running. I can mount the NFS export to a drive in the 2008 server. I can gain read access to the NFS export. However I cannot write anything to the NFS export from the 2008 server.

I have tried mounting the NFS export as the root user, administrative user, and anon (users on the NX4). I have had no luck.

I also enabled the local security policy setting of:
Local Security Policy --> Local Policies --> Security Options --> Network access: Let Everyone permission s apply to anonymous users


Any ideas on what to do? I am sure that this is a permissions issue, most likey located on the 2008 server. I am able to access the NFS share from a VMware host without having to put any log in info. The 2008 server is configured the same was as the VMware host server, in the NX4

Who is the owner and what are the permissions on the directories in the NFS share (look at them with a Linux/Unix system)?

The owner is root. It has full permissions and the group and others have only read when I look at it from the 2008 server. However I have mounted the NFS export using the user root and still have the same issues.

Also when I mount the NFS export on the VM hosts it can access it fine.

I am not sure how EMC handles permissions for accessing the NFS export, but it is setup by IP address rather than user based. You have to grant the IP read/write, root access.
