chgrp doesn't work

Charles Hedrick
File system mounted via Kerberized NFS.

chgrp has no effect, whether specifying the group by name (with an entry in /etc/group) or number. An error is given if an invalid group name is used. No error when a good one is used. Packet trace shows a GETATTR but nothing that would change the group.

Is there any other set up command-line tools that can handle NFS file systems on Windows?

chown/chgrp only work on filesystems supporting Windows SIDs and ACLs.
Microsoft NFS doesn't.  Cygwin's chown/chgrp ion NFS just fakes success,
just like on FAT.
