Mount mapr NFS volume to windows without windows SFU tools?

As the title states, would like to mount certain mapr volumes to onto a windows environment as local NFS directories, but don't have access to the Microsoft Windows Services for Unix (SFU) tools that are used in the mapr docs. Is there any way to do this? 


We have a need to give users on a windows environment access to certain mapr volumes to access files. These users would have difficulty using a command line scp command and can't simply transfer the files over with some graphical scp program because we need to keep their interactions with the mapr volume audited when they access/read/write data with, say, a python program. 


Currently, we have our mapr cluster mounted to the host machines via NFS. My current plan is to mount the specific directories in the linux NFS-mounted mapr cluster onto the windows environment via NFS (which I don't currently know how to do, so if anyone knows any good blogs or tutorials please leave a link). That way, the auditing that is enabled for these volumes can still track the operations that the windows user do to the volumes. 


Is there any better way to do this that anyone may have seen before for this problem?
