Identity Setup for Windows NFS Client to access Linux NAS Share RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have two Linux NAS mounts:

    • Mount A – owned by User 2345 in Group 1111
    • Mount B – owned by User 6789 in Group 2222

    The permission on sub-directories in mounts at Linux level are 770.

    I am mounting these from a Windows machine.  On Windows NFS Client if I set the Registry as below:

    dword "AnonymousUid"= 2345
    dword "AnonymousGid"= 1111

    I am able to access Mount A but not B. And vice-versa if I use 6789 and 2222.

    Is there a way I can at least provide multiple Group IDs on NFS Client? Like:

    dword "AnonymousGid"= 1111,2222

    That way I will be able to access both of the mounts from Windows, as the permission is 770. I cannot have 777.
