Where is your NFS storage? Is it local?
If its local. Why are you using NFS?
>Yes, I am exporting the local disks using NFS, and create a storage on NFS share, I don't know how else I could create a storage. I tried to read about local shares etc, no proper guidelines found

If its local. Why are you using NFS?I don't know other methods to create storage and repositories. The only one plug-in storage section shows is "Oracle generic Network File System".
I hope the following few details will assist you to provide me a suggestion to overcome this issue
My Oracle VM server IP address: 192.168.0.20
VM Manager IP: 192.168.0.23
Both machines are tied to different NICs for avoiding excess traffic
df -h on VM server

Should I export the mount points to another server? Please let me know.
/storage1 192.168.0.20(rw,sync,no_root_squash,nohide) /storage2 192.168.0.20(rw,sync,no_root_squash,nohide)
NFS was the only one file type recognized by the discovery process...I am quite new to virtualization, actually spent last whole week trying and fixing one or other issue with the VM server :D
If you know how I could avoid NFS in the entire scenario (as this is just for learning purpose) I would be grateful :)
Looks like the problem is resolved. I shifted the NFS share from Oracle VM server to another server (this time VM Manager server) and the unpacking is happening without any troubles
lesson learned, never ever TROUBLE VM server with anything else :)
