I have successfully backed up RHEL 5 OS vg over the network, when i boot from boot iso i am unable to restore. I got a error saying "mount command failed"

So i tried to mount the nfs manuually but that also didnot work, i got the following error in /var/log/messages.

RPC: failed to contact portmap (errno -5)
locked_up: makesock failed, error=-5
portmap: server localhost not responding, timed out

When i give netstat -ano

i could not find portmap running on the booted image.

@raju4244 did you need to start portmap manually to get the restore going?
