are you using ovirt storage leases? You'll need them if you want to
handle a hypervisor completely unresponsive (including fencing actions)
in a HA setting. Those storage leases use sanlock. If you use sanlock a
VM gets killed if the lease is not renewable during a very short
timeframe (60 seconds). That is what is killing the VMs during takeover.
Before storage leases it seems to have worked because it would simply
wait long enough for nfs to finish.

Hi, we have netapp nfs with ovirt in production and never experienced
an outage during takeover/giveback ..
- the default ovirt mount options should also handle little NFS
- but to tune it little up you should set disk timeout inside your
guest VMs to at least 180 and than you are safe
|cat << EOF >>/etc/rc.d/rc.local # Increasing the timeout value for i
in /sys/class/scsi_generic/*/device/timeout; do echo 180 > "\$i"; done
