I have SMVI setup on fas2040 to restore from NFS volume what additional software is required
You want to restore a VM from a NFS volume?
What is your goal?
If you are trying to do single VM restore - you need FlexClone licensed.
Now, if you have DOT 8.1 and later you don't need FlexClone license anymore so you can recovery your backups in a NFS environment.

The FlexClone license is required in the following situations:
• You are using the Provisioning and Cloning capability to clone virtual machines.
• You are using the Backup and Recovery capability in NFS environments, and running a version of Data ONTAP prior to 8.1.
