CentOS 6.3 running libvirt 0.10, trying to access/run a vm using a qcow2 on a Windows Server 2008 NFS mount. I tried nfsvers-3 when mounting but not luck, I get permission denied, presumably because the qemu user doesn't have rw access to the remote NFS server. I can read and write to the mount as root fine.

  • did you add execution privilege via sudo chmod +x /your/nfs on the directory where your NFS volume is mounted? – shawnzhu Oct 18 '13 at 2:22
  • Yes it is RWX across the board on the remote machine's mount folder. – user160910 Oct 18 '13 at 15:37
  • Seems this is a Windows NFS server issue. – user160910 Oct 18 '13 at 17:22

windows unix services are tricky to set up properly, and aren't recommended for production use at all. Having said that, here's how I have it set up on a 2008r2 box - this share hoss ISO files I use to install KVM VMs
