I'm attempting to set up an NFS share on a new Windows 2012 Standard server. There's nothing special as far as storage...I'm just trying to share out a folder on a local volume.
I'd like this share set up without any user or kerberos authentication. I only want to restrict based on the IP address of the machines that will be connecting to it.
So on the 'authentication methods' screen of the wizard, I do not select any of the Kerberos options. I check 'No server authentication (AUTH_SYS)', 'Enable unmapped user access', then 'Allow anonymous access'. I get the confirmation about granting the 'Let Everyone' permissions to anonymous users, which I confirm.
On the 'share permissions' step, I add a single host (is there a way to add an IP range?), leave the Language encoding as ANSI and set the Share permissions to 'Read only'. I add the permission and click next.
I don't modify anything under the Permissions step (maybe I need to do something here?). What user does an anonymous NFS connection try to use to connect to the share?
I click Next and Create. I get a useless error that it 'Failed to perform the requested operation'. I check the Event Logs, but the useless error is only repeated.
Any guidance on what I'm doing wrong? This is the first time I've tried setting up an NFS share on a Windows platform.
On a related note, is it possible to simultaneously share out a folder BOTH with CIFS and NFS?
