This object monitors the Server for NFS service and generates an alert if the service is not started, if the alert is enabled for this monitor.
NFS clients discover NFS servers by querying the RPC Port Mapper service for a remote server. NFS clients can only discover and communicate with a computer running Server for NFS. This monitor checks whether Server for NFS has successfully registered with the Service Control Manager.
This monitor can enter a Critical health state if Server for NFS has stopped either unexpectedly or by administrative action.
If the health state is unknown, it means that monitoring has not yet begun for this object.
