What is it?
NBD-Server is a program for sharing an image of a filesystem or a partition on your system with an Linux system over a network.
This nbd-server can run on a Microsoft Windows system"
I'm just trying it out but I'm confused over
"filename must be a disk-identifier. Something like: \\.\PHYSICALDRIVE0
for the first phsyical(!) disk, \\.\PHYSICALDRIVE1 for the second
physical disk, etc. When using a physical disk, you can can enter a
partition-number. Default is partition 0.
nbdsrvr \\.\PHYSICALDRIVE0 9000 0"
what/where are device IDs in winxp?
EDIT: Just downloaded and looking through the readme for ndbsrv and I'm not really sure if the 'disk-identifier' mentioned is the same as the Device IDs. Best be careful!

SpringerLink - Book Chapter

found this on technet
if I doMicrosoft Windows may report event messages in the event log for various hard disk device issues using the following syntax:
The device, \Device\Harddisk#\Partition #
orCode:c:\>nbdsrvr \bob\bob 9000 1 nbdsrvr v0.2 (c) 2003 by firstname.lastname@example.org connection made with 192.168.0.8 error opening file \bob\bob: 3 failed to close handle: 6
Code:c:\>nbdsrvr \\device\harddisk0 9000 1 nbdsrvr v0.2 (c) 2003 by email@example.com connection made with 192.168.0.8 error opening file \\device\harddisk0: 53 failed to close handle: 6
