OK, I have found more than enough tutorials online about mapping an NFS share to a drive on WIndows 7 and Windows 2008. What I need is to know how to access a share without mapping it to a drive. This is a big issue for me when the Local System account needs to leverage a share drive. The share I am working with is open to all users so there is no need to map to a user account, but I am trying to determine if there is a UNC that I can use to access the share.

Yes. Use the UNC path of the NFS server and share path - the exact same way that you do for getting to SMB shares without using a mapped drive.

\\servername\share\path\

or

\\IP.IP.IP.IP\share\path
