I need NAS on a Windows Server 2008 R2. Does it come standard on Win Server 2008 R2? I want a "Network Storage Server" (Windows Server 2008 R2) and I have the R2 Server up and running, but nothing there that points me to turning it into a NAS Server. I see file server but nothing about NAS. Am I missing something?

Not sure I understand the question. NAS basically is a way to share files without a server OS and or hardware RAID. If all you are doing is sharing files then file sharing from the server will do what you want.
