Dase Posted May 17, 2011 Share Posted May 17, 2011 I'm passing this info along to hopefully save someone else the hours of googling it took me to figure this out. NFS support in Windows is very poorly documented. First of all, you need Windows 7 Ultimate for this to work. Lesser versions of Windows 7 don't include NFS support. My main roadblock was that every share I mapped resulted in "Access denied" errors. It turns out you need an obscure registry hack to allow Windows to authenticate properly. Here's what you need to do. 1. In Control Panel, open Programs and Features. 2. Click "Turn Windows features on or off." 3. Enable "Services for NFS" and click OK. Wait for it to install. 4. Start the registry editor. 5. Locate HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\ClientForNFS\CurrentVersion\Default. 6. Create two DWORD values: AnonymousUid and AnonymousGid. They both need to be set to the number zero (0). 7. Reboot. 8. Activate NFS in unRAID 5 (Settings tab) and on the Main tab click the shares you want to export. Set "Export" to Yes. I used Public security. I had to reboot my unRAID server for NFS shares to work after enabling NFS support the first time. 8. In Windows 7, map your drives with the "Map network drive" feature by using this format for the path: tower:/mnt/user/Video You can also do this from the command line: mount tower:/mnt/user/Video z: Note that for NFS shares you have to provide the full unRAID folder path, not just the final shared folder. Alas, after doing all this work I found out that my NFS transfers in Windows topped out at about 30 MB/sec. I get up to 120 MB/sec in Samba. Oh well. Quote Link to comment
