- can you login to the VM running the engine and try to mount the nfs 
share manually to some directory, just to see if it works? Neither 
engine nor setup is responsible for setting the nfs share (and 
configuring iptables for nfs server), so it's up to you to set it up 
properly and make sure it's mountable from engine.
