Application Event logs:
Windows(R) failed a request to initialize the Network File System (NFS) redirector <[d:\w7rtm\base\fs\remotefs\nfs\client\nfsclient\service.c:199] : 0: The operation completed successfully.

Client for NFS cannot start.
Windows may be low on system resources. Try increasing available system resources by closing programs, then start Client for NFS manually.

Cause

Could not start 'Client for NFS' service.

Unable to manually start NFS:
C:\Users\administrator.FUZZY>nfsadmin client start

Error occured while starting the service.
C:\Users\administrator.FUZZY>

Per the 7.6 VMware Admin Guide, the Services for Network File System (NFS) must be installed on the Windows media server and restore host.

Solution

To restart the 'Client for NFS' service without a server restart, run the following commands:

net stop nfsclnt
net stop nfsrdr
net start nfsrdr
net start nfsclnt
 
If that is unsuccessful, re-install the 'Client for NFS' role.
