Windows 7: Mounting NFS Shares

25 Aug 2009   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate
 
 
Mounting NFS Shares

According to all the research I've done, this should be a fairly straightforward matter:

Add/remove Windows components
Install Services for NFS and Subsystem for UNIX-based Applications (with the downloaded extras)
From command line: mount server:/share z:

However, it doesn't seem to be that simple.

I've tried just about every guide I could find on the matter. My first problem is that when I try to run the "mount" command, there's no executable found for it. A search of my hard drive reveals one buried deep in an obscurely named Windows folder, but when I run the help command (mount /?), it just outputs a blank line, and when I try to use it to mount a share, it does the same (ie nothing).

Trying to mount the share from a "net use" command, or through Windows Explorer produces nothing useful.

Has anyone been through this process? Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks.

Instead of "mount" use the "mountvol" command

I found your original post from a year ago at Technet.
Mounting NFS Shares

And the only answer that came up is in the link below, from what I read it can only work with Windows 7 Ultimate and Enterprize.
