nfs client for windows (server 2012)

nfs client for windows (server 2012)

Installation and how to use:

  • Install the client by adding the feature “nfs client for windows” – straight forward … no reboot required
  • use nftadmin to configure the client, if necessary
  • use mount to map shares
  • use umount to remote mount points

mount \\nas-device\nas\share u:
could be interesting:

  • -o mtype=soft|hard
    hard: in case the nfs-server goes offline, the nfs client for windows will try to reconnect until the server is online again.
  • –o nolock
    better performance in case of just read-access
  • -o fileaccess=mode

man page mount
man page nfsadmin
