Strange UID with Windows 2003 as nfs server

Consider the next configuration:

A Fileserver with Win2003 server installed. This has a directory (projects) shared in two ways: a normal windows share and an nfs share.

A windows 7 machine using the normal windows share on the fileserver

A Linux machine using the nfs share.

On the Win2003 server machine, I have used simple user name mapping for the nfs share.

Here is my problem: When write a file to the Fileserver from the windows machine and read this again with the linux machine, the uid and gid are strange long numbers (uid=gid=4294967294). It should be: uid=1000 and gid=100. How can I make this work correctly?

Isn’t that a Windows problem? Either the Windows client or the Windows 2003 server should use 1000:100 to create files (at least that is what you want them to do).

But may be I should not try to advise you as I know nothing of Windows.

i’ve been thinking of setting up a filter to mark as read all with
these strings in subject:

windows
samba
dual boot
game
wine
photoshop
etc etc etc

maybe not ‘good’, but at least better…my win3.1 knowledge is a bit
dated…and foggy…
