So if I am understanding this correctly, you want to do the following:

Windows Files Share ----> NiFi -----> Hadoop

Off the top of my head I can think of a couple ways to do it.

1) Setup the Windows directory to share via FTP. This can be done using IIS on the Windows machine, or a 3rd party FTP server

2) Install MiNiFi or NiFi on the Windows machine to transmit data using site-to-site protocol to the NiFi Cluster


Is there a particular reason you don't want to mount the share to the NiFi host?
