I have had some trouble mapping an NFS Drive on Windows 2008R2. It appears my issues relate to simple syntax. I was using Amazon Workspaces and that runs on Windows 2008R2 Datacenter. My NFS drive is running on on EC2 in Ubuntu on the same VPC. I chose NFS over Samba hoping that it will make file transfers a bit quicker.
The command I used to map was \\localip\shared-folder E:
Where E: is the drive letter. This is how it would look: mount \\172.16.1.1\shared Z:
The other stumbling block I had was not seeing the drive in Windows Explorer. By not seeing the drive in there I had a program that also couldn’t see the drive. The answer to this situation was to run the mount command with a regular command prompt and not an elevated command prompt.
