I'll do my best explaining and give all the info you may need.
Running Win 2K8 R1 standard w/ SP2 64-bit
NFS service installed
I'm trying to get Granular backup using Netbackup 6.5.4 however no such
luck. Netbackup requires NFS service to be installed however there are NFS
errors on both exchange and Netbackup and it fails. If I try to restart NFS
in the services.msc I get error. I then need to restart the server for NFS
to start again.
I'll copy & paste some of the errors below, I've done A LOT of googling and
haven't found any solutions except that it may be a problem related to SP2
and to roll-back...this is not a solution that is feasable to my manager.
This error when I try to restart the NFS service.

services stop automatically if they are not in use by other services or
my last attempt I got this error in the Windows logs:

Other errors that I've seen in past troubleshooting.

will attempt to continue but some NFS clients may not function properly.
Server for NFS creates RPC endpoints to receive requests from Network File

able to receive any requests on this computer.
Without either Active Directory Lookup or User Name Mapping, Server for NFS
cannot grant file access to users.

To avoid this warning in the future, enable file-locking suppport on the
remote NFS server."
We are a professional Services company so we have certified staff in
Microsoft and both Netbackup and no one is able to solve the problem.
Our NetBackup guy says he's done this exact install at a client with NO NFS
configuration and it worked.
