Solution

To resolve this issue please review the following common issues and solutions:
 
NFS Datastore location has invalid path:
1.  Open Registry Editor
2.  Open the following key:

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Veeam\Veeam NFS

3.  The REG_SZ RootFolder should have a valid path to a location within the filesystem. The most common issue is that the location points to a drive that is no longer present.

Default Value: C:\ProgramData\Veeam\Backup\NFSDatastore

 
Another service is locking a port needed by vPower NFS:
1.  Open an Administrator Command Prompt
2.  Run the following commands

netstat -bona > portlist.txt
notepad portlist.txt

3.  Search the text file and confirm that the following ports are not locked by another process.

111
