We do get a lots of cases in which customer is looking to mount a NFS share as a System account so that the share is available even when the users logs off.  This is usually required in scenarios where customer is running certain application which would access the NFS share.

The best option is to tell the application to access the NFS share using UNC path.but still we can try them to meet the requirement.



Create a batch file which maps the drives and scheduled it to run at Windows
start up in NTAUTHORITY\SYSTEM context. Drives mapped in SYSTEM context are visible
in all logon sessions.

You can make the following entry on the batch file

net use w: \\Unixmachine\share name
