I had already gone through this path once early in my ovirt lifetime and
didn't get it working, I was able to make it happen this time. Thanks.
I was hoping for some other method, but this will work, it's going to be

everything which essentially copies it all.
And with only 1 export domain allowed at a time, and 3 nfs machines, i'm
going to have to do them in sequence.. urgghhh
