I just upgraded from veeam 4.1.2 to 5.0.1 and noticed that the veeam nfs server use the same port as windows nfs (111). I used windows nfs on the same server for ISO repository and so I uninstalled the windows service to use veeam NFS only.
I'm wondering how can I add the NFS datastare on the ESX machine? For example "Server:/vpowernfs" does not work. Is it also possibly to create an other NFS share with veeam NFS or have I to put all files in the "vpowernfs" folder?

Easiest way to attach NFS datastore to a host is to go through Instant VM Recovery wizard (no need to actually power on VM, you can unpublish it immediately). The wizard will attach vPower NFS datastore to the selected host automatically for you, if it does not see the datastore attached.
If you are looking to share out some files (such as ISO images) on Veeam Backup server via NFS, then you can simply put the files into vPower NFS root folder (the one you specified during setup). Our NFS server automatically shares out any files located in this folder. Just keep in mind that multiple heavy users accessing those files may affect performance of actual vPower-based functionality (such as in case of actual disaster, when you need to instantly recover a VM).
