Next-gen node (since 4.0) doesn't have any strong notion of "persistence",
unlike previous versions of oVirt Node.

My guess would be that /exports was not moved across to the new system.

The update process for Node is essentially:

* create a new lv
* unpack the squashfs in the new RPM and put it on the LV
* Go through /var, /etc, and /root to see if any files were modified/added,
and copy those to the new layer
* Add a new bootloader entry
* Re-install any persistent RPMs

I would guess that /exports as not on its own partition, so it didn't carry
across. Mounting the LV for the old image somewhere (/tmp/...) will make
them visible again,
