NFS Client for Windows

I needed to access some AIX and linux NFS shares so I tried to find a tool to access the NFS shares. Although there are some tools like diskaccess but these are not free, and I really don't like to pay for software when it's not necessary. After searching some more I found there is a NFS client included with Windows, you just have to download the software and install it.

If you're looking for more info regarding this on Windows Server 2008 and Red Hat click here.

Installation

After downloading the software extract the package and double click the setup.exe. For my installation I used these settings during the install: nfsforwininstallationselection.jpg
nfsforwinusernamemapping01.jpg
nfsforwinusernamemapping02.jpg

After the installation I rebooted my machine just to be sure… it is Windows after all…

Mount Commands

After the reboot I could mount, check and unmount a share like this:

C:\WINDOWS\system32>mount

Local    Remote                                 Properties
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

C:\WINDOWS\system32>mount nfsserver:/mnt/data x:
x: is now successfully connected to nfsserver:/mnt/data

The command completed successfully.

C:\WINDOWS\system32>mount

Local    Remote                                 Properties
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
x:       \\nfsserver\mnt\data                   UID=-2, GID=-2
                                                rsize=32768, wsize=32768
                                                mount=soft, timeout=0,8
                                                retry=1, locking=yes
                                                fileaccess=755, lang=ANSI
                                                casesensitive=no

C:\WINDOWS\system32>umount x:

Disconnecting           x:      \\nfsserver\mnt\data
The command completed successfully.

C:\WINDOWS\system32>mount

Local    Remote                                 Properties
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

C:\WINDOWS\system32>
