NFS set up with host Windows 7 Enterprise and MIC Linux

NFS set up with host Windows 7 Enterprise and MIC Linux

I want to share one directory between the host and one coprocessor.

Since the support on the host side appears to be only for client, the coprocessor needs to be the server.

There is plenty of documentation available on NFS and Linux but the Linux on the coprocessor does not have all the features described.


Thanks in advance

Yes, as you note, the MPSS Windows User's guide provides steps for using NFS Server supported on Windows* Server 2008 and 2012 but not the NFS Client on Windows* 7 and 8.

I have inquired about any available methods for using NFS Client and will let you know what information I receive.

Information received from others is that MPSS official NFS support is as indicated in the MPSS User's Guide: "NFS server is supported on Windows* Server 2008 R2 SP1, Windows* Server 2012, and Windows* Server 2012 R2 only. It is NOT supported on Windows* 7 or Windows* 8/8.x"; therefore, you will not be able to configure the coprocessor to serve as a NFS server so you need to use a third party NFS server on the Windows host.

I can’t speak to the functionality of any these but here is a list of free/non-free NFS servers:

Non-Free options:

haneWIN NFS Server for Windows ($29.00)
Allegro NFS for Windows ($65.00)
Omni-NFS Server for Windows ($115.00)

Free options:

FreeNFS  (This may not work on 64-bit OS)

I hope this is of some help.
