Well… it's pretty hard to judge on what you did wrong, since you haven't actually provided what you did, that led to that error. As far as I can say, all Oracle VM templates provide a complete stack of the OS, including NFS.
If you'd wanted to mount a CD-Rom inside an OVM guest, it would be easiest to convert such a CD to an ISO file, import that ISo using OVMM and attach that ISO file to the quest in question.
Ok,I will explain further :
1.I downloaded an Oracle EM12cR2 template from e-Delivery.
2.I cloned the template to a guest.The OS is OE 5.7
3.The new guest is running fine.I was able to expand its disks,without any problems.
Now my goal is to mount one of our NAS servers,as I need to install some addition software on the guest.
At that point I hit the nfs error.
Anyway,I made some progress regarding the cd-rom mount :
1.I downloaded and imported into my repository a full OE 5.7 iso
2.I changed the guest to be PVM and
3.I exported the iso to my guest as a CD-DVD
4.In the guest I mounted the iso as cd-rom and its working fine
Additionally I defined it as a yum local repository
I installed nfs rpm's (which were missing) and the dependents rpm's using yum
I still have some issues ,but I think I'm better now.
