I have tried to mount the NFS share in a ESXi server but the transfer errors out after a while.
Now I'm trying to use qemu-img to convert the vmdisk and move it, but it fails with :
qemu-img convert nfs://127.0.0.1/default-container-49239103706845/.acropolis/vmdisk/81cd6231-e421-441c-850c-9124adf565d0 -O qcow2 ./dns-export.qcow2 &
NFS Error: NFS: Read failed with NFS3ERR_JUKEBOX(-11)
qemu-img: error while reading sector 4202495: Resource temporarily unavailable
Is there any logs that will tell me what is happening with the NFS connection?

Windows can mount a Nutanix whitelisted datastore if you install the NFS client feature.
I'd open a support case for the remote site issue. And check for firewall / network configuration issues. If you can get these two sites on an Async DR protection domain, it's easy to cold migrate VMs between the sites.
