nfs/nis - microsoft services for UNIX adminstration

I am using "microsoft services for UNIX adminstration" as an nfs/nis client in order to connect to a remote NFS folder with NIS authentication

nfs mount seems to fail on the authentication stage. I get the login box from the client, but any (NIS mapped) loging seems to reject me.
client indicates to be able to "see" the nis server, I may even see the list of users from the console tools. and yet mount fails on login stage.
please, your assistance
