Server for NFS

Updated: January 27, 2011

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

A computer running Windows and Server for NFS can act as a file server for both Windows-based and UNIX-based computers.

Aspects

The following is a list of all aspects that are part of this managed entity:

Name Description

NFS Activity Logging

Activity logging enables you to record user activity through Server for Network File System (NFS).

NFS Character Translation

Character translation enables you to resolve conflicts between Windows and UNIX file names.

NFS File Sharing

A computer running Windows and Server for NFS can act as a file server  and share files between Windows-based and UNIX-based computers.

NFS LDAP Connection

Server for NFS enables you to control access by users and groups to Services for Network File System (NFS) resources. A connection to an Light Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) server allows Server for NFS to query Windows-UNIX user account mappings and grant file access to a user.

NFS Port Registration

Network File System (NFS) clients discover NFS servers by querying the port mapper for a remote server. RPC Port Mapper converts RPC data into TCP and UDP protocol port numbers. It must be active for Server for NFS to start.

NFS Startup Status

NFS clients discover NFS servers by querying the port mapper for a remote server. NFS clients can only discover and communicate with a computer running Server for NFS.

NFS User Name Mapping Connection

User Name Mapping associates user accounts between Windows and UNIX domains. User Name Mapping associates Windows and UNIX user names so that users logged onto a UNIX domain can access shared resources on Windows without logging on separately to the Windows domain.
