Enabling Services for Network File System (NFS) on Windows 2008 or 2008 R2 (NetBackup for VMware)
To perform VM instant recovery with a Windows restore host, you must enable Services for Network File System. When this configuration is completed on the media server and the restore host, you can disable any unnecessary NFS services.
To enable Services for Network File System (NFS) on Windows 2008 or 2008 R2
- Open the Server Manager.
- In the left pane, click Roles and, in the right pane, click Add Roles.
- In the Add Roles Wizard, on the Before You Begin page, click Next.
- On the Select Server Roles page, under Roles, check the File Services check box.
- Click Next.
- On the Files Services page, click Next.
- On the Select Role Services page, uncheck File Server.
- Check Services for Network File System.
- Click Next and complete the wizard.
For each host in your configuration, do one of the following.
If you have a single host that functions as both the media server and the restore host, you can disable the Server for NFS.
For a host that is only the NetBackup media server, you can disable the Server for NFS and the Client for NFS.
Make sure that the portmap service is started and that its startup mode is set to auto.
For a host that is only a restore host, you can disable the Server for NFS.
