Veeam vPower NFS Service Issue

Hi EE,

We have installed Veeam Backup and Replication v5.0 and installed NFS NAS.
On the server where Veeam is installed, one of the Veeam services isnt starting.
 The error message:-

Could not start the Veeam vPower NFS Service service on Local Computer.
Error 0x80004005: Unspecified error.

Any ideas on fixing this?

Have you got NFS installed on the same server?
Is something else using the same port?

How do I check to see whats using what port? What's the standard NFS port?
Do we need to install NFS?
No, I was asking do you have NFS already installed on this server?

Veeam vPower NFS Service uses port 161.

check with telnet localhost 161

NFS isnt installed on the server.
It i a virtual environment.
Do I check port 161 where Veeam is installed?
if no NFS service installed on the server, that's okay, that is not the reason it's not starting.

It doesnt seem like port 161 is opened as I'm unable to telnet into it.

Whats the next step?

Any luck? *bump*
I didn't think this would be the issue, as you've not got NFS installed. Have you tried contacting Veeam Support?

I thought I'd check if anyone else have the same problem.
I guess I'll need to contact Veeam support.
Thanks for trying all - cheers.

Nothing needs to be changed - just need to change the Backup job to Network mode. This will increase the speed up to 300MB/s.
