WMI Provider for NFS


The Windows Network File System (NFS) client and server enable you to transfer files using the NFS protocol between computers running Windows and computers running third-party operating systems such as UNIX. The NFS WMI provider provides a means of managing NFS server and client settings, file shares, netgroups, and client groups.

Developer audience

The NFS WMI provider is designed for programmers who use C/C++, the Microsoft Visual Basic application, or a scripting language such as VBScript, JavaScript, or Perl. Familiarity with COM programming is helpful but not required. For more information about WMI, see Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) Documentation.
