I had similar problems with a netapp deployment. Three possibilities to
1. Security on the export shipped by default with a missing netmask on
the export so 0.0.0.0 should be 0.0.0.0/24 or whatever you want to
restrict to. Though as you can write with sudo probably not the issue.
2. SELinux - I wonder if you try temporarily running setenforce 0 and
re-mounting if it has the same problem?
3. Cinder and Glance exports should be created with their respective
UIDs as owner. I blogged about it here:
Hope some of this is helpful but if not would be glad to hear of

So this look like an issue with the user that Cinder is using to
to the export (cinder?)?
I have tried setting this option in cinder.conf, but it makes no
