Can you mount the NFS mount with other clients? Can you ping the NFS server from the XenServer ?

Does showmount -e <host ip> return you the NFS mount from the XenServer cli ?

sorry, I am very new on Linux and XenServer I don't know how to do what you said!

Maybe I failed to understand the original question. I understood you had setup a NFS server and you were 

trying to create a new SR with XenServer and it was failing to mount your NFS server. Is that not the case ?

no, I didn't setup the NFS server, I didn't know how to set it up, can you help me to set it up ?? 
 Iam trying to use CIFS share but this notification appears for me

When creating a new SR connection those are to remote storage devices. You need to have a CIFS, NFS, or iSCSI server 

on your network with which you are connecting to to create shared storage. You local storage should have been created

at install time with you local disks.
