Freenas: Mount NFS as an alternative to SMB

As Windows 10 no longer supports SMB v1 as used by FreeNAS 0.7.2, it was necessary to find an alternative.

NFS works in Windows 10. You can describe the NFS client as described here.

I found I needed the nolock option to be able to view files.

mount -o nolock -o anon \\<Server>\<mount> x:

e.g. mount -o nolock -o anon \\<Server>\mnt\Data x:

It was also necessary to set two registry keys on each client to set the user ID and Group ID. Restart the NFS client with nfsadmin client start | stop.

This article also describes how you can change the user ID so the share is mounted as a different user.

To find a user's UID or GID in Unix, use the id command. To find a specific user's UID, at the Unix prompt, enter:
 id -u username
Replace username with the appropriate user's username. To find a user's GID, at the Unix prompt, enter:
 id -g username
If you wish to find out all the groups a user belongs to, instead enter:
 id -G username
If you wish to see the UID and all groups associated with a user, enter id without any options, as follows:
 id username
