dear gurus

advise if i have share folder via nfs on windows 2008 r2

so as windows client 7,8,xp can we access the folder. how the permission will work if server and client under single domain.

and if no domain only indepent server and client is windows

in fact someone advise me to use nfs permission, where we have case of windows env for file folder sharing, so nfs given as altenative solution. when reserch on various article we come to know it is unix/linux in between sharing only purpose.

but can we achive between windows as well

any such combination possible

Not sure I understand fully but.. if your environment is totally Windows then there is no benefit to be using NFS shares. You should stick to CIFS, and as for the permissions.. under one domain you'd assign the permissions as either share or NTFS.
Typically with a domain you'd stick to NTFS, and in a workgroup or non domain you'd use Share permissions.

dear gurus

thanks advise more

if domain controller enviornment what all possible way folder sharing on server we can use technologies

as some say use dfs, name space, cifs, as this look confusing turning point

ntfs normally corrupt or inheritance issues, it work till windows 2003 perfectly since launching windows 2008 r2 so this work like linux way, like write/delete permission come together. if no deletion permission , so also no writing permission as well.

i m looking all possible option file/folder share various for users, groups, departments etc

advise further

DFS is for distributed sharing and replication.  Name space is part of DFS.. so ignore DFS, that is not what you are wanting.  If you want to use NFS then you;d have to install the NFS client on your machines.  Too much trouble.

You are just wanting to share some folders out for users on your network correct?
