How to map NFS Gateway to a Windows drive?

How to map NFS Gateway to a Windows drive?

New Contributor

I am trying to map HDFS to a Windows drive, just like I used to do: net use \\192.168.0.2\share z:

 

I installed NFS Gateway in Cloudera Manager, and started it right. I can mount hdfs onto a local folder, 

    mount -t nfs -o vers=3,proto=tcp,nolock,noacl 172.16.19.142:/  /mnt/nfs

and it works.

 

I just cannot make it work on Windows. I even added Network File System service on Windows 7. 

The result is 172.16.19.142\(\) (G:), when I click it, it says "Cannot find network path...".

 

Also, the strange thing to me is, from several places, they say, You should see output similar to the following:

    $ showmount -e <nfs_server_ip_address>
       Exports list on <nfs_server_ip_address>:
         / (everyone)

but mine is:    

    $ showmount -e 172.16.19.142
      Exports list on 172.16.19.142:
        / *
