Windows Server 2008 R2 NFS not working

    I have a Windows Server 2008 R2, fully patched, where I have added
    the File Server role. I have some files that need to be shared with
    GNU/Linux boxes. I added the Network File Server Role Service without
    error. I have shared the desired directory. On the GNU/Linux box I
    mount the NFS share without error. When as an authorized user I do an
    "ls" of the mount I get permission denied. Specifically I get "/bin/ls:
    cannot open directory /mnt: Permission denied".

    If I unmount the share and add "Everyone" to the NTFS permissions,
    remount, then "ls", things work fine. I can't leave "Everybody" in
    the NTFS permissions. This group of files must only be accessed by a
    few people. I have those people in an AD security group. Same results.

    Then I found the AD security groups also have unix permissions (NIS
    domains). I added the right people to the unix side, unmounted,
    remounted, and have the same results.

    What do I need to do with this?
