Unable to Install NFS Server Roles on Windows Server 2016

When you try to install NFS Server Roles on Windows Server 2016 by using server manager, you were not able to. The system keeps requesting you to restart the server. [Pending restart]

But restart the server still does not allow you to install NFS Server roles.

Next step:-
This may be due to other application is using same port 111. Example:- Veeam vPower NFS Service

[ Resolution ]
1. Temporary disable the Veeam vPower NFS Service services
2. Install NFS Server Roles using Server Manager
3. Restart Veeam vPower NFS Service

That should do the trick!
