The New-NfsNetgroup cmdlet creates a netgroup. It can also add members to the new netgroup. The netgroup provides access to shares that Network File System (NFS) server

You can create a netgroup in Active Directory Domain Services (ADDS), on an Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services (AD LDS) server, or on Lightweight Directory
Access Protocol (LDAP) servers. If you do not specify a netgroup store, New-NfsNetgroup creates a netgroup in the netgroup store that is configured on the local computer.

The cmdlet creates the netgroup as a relative distinguished name in an LDAP naming context (directory partition). For example, if the specified naming context is
DN=netgroups,CN=Contoso,CN=com", the distinguished name of the netgroup Contoso-PrintServices is "DN= Contoso-PrintServices ,DN=netgroups,CN=Contoso,CN=com".

You can group NFS client computers logically into netgroups to easily manage mount permissions for all the computers that are in the group. Because netgroups are a
server-side setting, New-NfsNetgroup is not available on client operating systems.

Example 1: Create a netgroup and add a member

PS C:\> New-NfsNetgroup -NetGroupName "Contoso-PrintServices -AddMember "Contoso-PS02" -LdapInstanceName "Contoso.com" -LdapNamingContext

This command creates a netgroup that is named Contoso-PrintServices and adds one member that is named Contoso-PS02.

Example 2: Create a netgroup and add multiple members

PS C:\> New-NfsNetgroup -NetGroupName "AppServers" -AddMember "Contoso-APPS-11","Contoso-APPS-12" -LdapServer "Contoso.com" -LdapNamingContext "CN=netgroup,DC=Contoso,DC=com"

This command creates a netgroup that is named AppServers and adds two members that are named Contoso-APPS-11 and Contoso-APPS-12.
