NIS Client? I don't believe this is possible... – voretaq7 Nov 23 '12 at 17:48
Then if I don't use client, how can I make windows-server access the file system of NFS(it can only read but has no right to write)? – worldterminator Nov 25 '12 at 7:56

I was looking for the same answer, and I found this. Maybe this would help:

To install Identity Management for UNIX components

  • Open Server Manager. To open Server Manager, click Start , point to Administrative Tools , and then click Server Manager.

  • In the tree pane, expand Roles.

  • On the role home page for AD DS, in the Roles section, in the list of common tasks, click Add Role Services.

  • On the Select Role Services page of the Add Role Services Wizard, select the Identity Management for UNIX role services that you want to install, and then click Next.

  • If the wizard prompts you to install any other role services that are required by Identity Management for UNIX components, click Yes.

  • After verifying your selections on the Confirm Installation Selections page, click Install.

  • The computer must be restarted after the installation of Identity Management for UNIX finishes.
