I'm running Windows Server 2008 R2, 64bit. We have a couple NFS shares on our NetApp SAN that we need to mount from this server as letter drives. I have installed "Service for NFS" and I have successfully mounted the NFS shares using both "mount" and "net use", but I have a couple questions: 1. Is one method better than the other, "mount" vs. "net use" 2. When using "mount,"  the mounts are lost when  log out of that user or restart. Can I do any sort of a "persistent" tag with "mount" (I got it to work with "net use", but this leds into my next question...) 3. Ultimately I would like to have the NFS mounts remain active even when there is no user logged in, is there any way to mount an NFS  share as a service or somthing like that so that it is always  available?

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

I am curious to learn the answer. I have tried services for unix. But am hoping to get a better solution.
