For instant recovery of virtual machines, the Services for Network File System (NFS) must be installed on the Windows restore host and media servers.
Before you configure NFS on the media server or restore host, look for the ONC/RPC Portmapper service. If it exists, stop it and disable it. Otherwise, the configuration of NFS Services for Windows fails.
