For our requirements, we implement nifi on windows servers vs nifi on linux server. No need to manage mount points.

Have you considered installing Java MiNiFi on the windows server and using it to execute the necessary local flows to collect the data, then push it to NiFi via a SiteToSite connection? Opening one port for MiNiFi to S2S back to NiFi would be a lot easier than maintaining 300 sharemounts via Samba.

Hi Dan,

I can not make any adjustment to the windows server, would you recommend that i put the nifi in windows for production?
