We expect both sides to have the same storage configurtion. ie both
must be NFS. I'm pretty sure our code for handling disks does not
work when you have a local FS on one side, which is exported to the
other side as NFS. Conceptally that's not something someone would
do in production, since they you make the target host dependant
on the src compute host, which is poor for resilience.
