Version: 5.2.3790.1830
Message: Server for NFS is not configured for either Active Directory Lookup or User Name Mapping. Users will not be able to access NFS shares on this server.
   
Explanation

For UNIX users to access files on a Windows computer through Server for NFS, they must be associated with Windows user accounts.  Active Directory Lookup and User Name Mapping enable Server for NFS to lookup a corresponding Windows user accounts when UNIX users access Server for NFS file shares. If Server for NFS is not configured to lookup UNIX users via Active Directory Lookup or User Name Mapping (Server for NFS only needs one of the two), then Server for NFS cannot provide file access to users.

Cause

In Control Panel, double-click Administrative Tools, then double-click Microsoft Services for NFS. Click Microsoft Services for NFS. In the Action menu, click Properties. If Microsoft Services for NFS is not configured for Active Directory Lookup or User Name Mapping, both fields will be blank (Microsoft Services for NFS needs only one of the two).

   
User Action

If Active Directory Lookup and User Name Mapping are not configured, consult the online help for more information. Once configured, specify the domain for Active Directory Lookup or enter the computer name or IP address of the User Name Mapping server.
