Yup, standard behavior.

Well you've demonstrated that the user "vdsm" can r/w the NFS export
from the hypervisor. This is a common source of problems as things like
selinux and UID/GID mismatches can cause all sorts blockages preventing
VDSM's ability to r/w the NFS export.
Let's see what VDSM thinks. From a hypervisor do this...
1. Type "mount"
2. Look for your ISO domain in the returned list.
3. Note the local path to the ISO domain. It might look something like
4. List the directories in it:
5. Notice the returned UUID directory name:
[root at node ~]# ls /rhev/data-center/mnt/oravm3.acbl.net:_isodomain
6. Supply that to the vdsClient command as follows:
vdsClient -s 0 getFileList 92cf90c2-3698-48b5-84fd-d8e4f8684549
