I created a folder on a netapp sharedrive can see on Linux box but unable to see via windows. Both Linux user and windows user are mapped with same uid.

Share was created through NetApp filers on NFS mount.

Did you create a Windows (CIFS) Share or NFS Mount ?

This is the issue, Linux supports NFS, Windows does not out of the box!

Create a Windows CIFS Share.

Is there any way we can create a mount for both the user. We have both Linux and windows user who would be accessing same share.

If you have created a NFS mount, and you require access from Linux and Windows, you will need to use an application for Windows, which can mount NFS.

NFS is to Unix/LInux, as Windows Shares (CIFS) are to Windows.

You will need to install and use an NFS Client for Windows, OR create a Windows Share on your NetApp Filer.

Exceed is one NFS Client for Windows.

Simply create a Windows share on the same mount point.

In system manager-> filer->storage->shares.

There are a few things you need to take into account as far as access rights go, because the Windows user needs to be mapped to the unix user. Read the manual on this topic:
