I am trying to look for instructions on how to set up a NFS on a regular 2003 server (not R2), so i can share the share for an ESX server.

All instructions I find are for a 2003R2 server. can it be done on 2003 (not R2)

Hi,

You will need to install it by going to add & remove programs and then add/remove window components?
Other Network File and Print Services (click details) - click Microsoft Services for NFS (click details) then select everything that you need.

Then you can manage it with Microsoft Services for Network File System in admin tools.

Hope this helps
