Samba or NFS


I have two linux servers. One file server (debian) that is running
samba and one application server (redhat). I would like to mount the
shares of the file server in the application server. The problem is
that the usernames are very different. Samba is already running and
easier to set-up. NFS seems to be more difficult to set-up and also
there are more security issues.

Which are the advantages of NFS over Samba (cifs) other than the
symbolic links. I read that even some people prefer samba over NFS to
connect Unix to Unix.
