Message: Server for NFS was unable to register with the RPC Port Mapper while attempting to start. Server for NFS is not started.
   
Explanation

NFS services do not usually register on well-known ports. NFS utilizes the RPC Port Mapper services for NFS clients to discover the port numbers for the various NFS services, such as mount, Network Lock Manager (NLM), and Network Status Manager (NSM). If Server for NFS is unable to register with the RPC Port Mapper, NFS clients will not be able to access Server for NFS file shares.

Cause

Other software may already be registering with RPC Port Mapper.
   
User Action

Close the program registering with the RPC Port Mapper, then start Server for NFS.

 Click Start and then Control Panel. In Control Panel, double-click Administrative Tools, then click Services. Click Server for NFS. In the Action menu, click Start.
