Environment



AIX master server NB7503

Windows 2008 R2 media server NB7503

All client nodes are running Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise

Exchange 2010 DAG backup


Cause



nbfsd port cannot be initalized


Solution



Both port 111 (standard port mapper)  & 7394 (nbfsd)  needs to be reachable, note that we also need to make sure other service is not using port 7394 because it will conflict with nbfsd initalization.
