Hi Richard,
Can you tell me the minimal Kernel version needed to kill this issue ?
I have this one : kernel-3.10.0-123.8.1.el7.x86_64

There's some breaking news on this issue.

During our internal testing we also observed problems where NFS writes would hang, with virt-v2v but also with other tools (it's an NFS bug).
This was fixed by updating the kernel on the virt-v2v client to the latest version.
