Libvirt-daemon-driver-storage-gluster: Unknown protocol gluster

Asked by Zorba on 2021-06-07

Hello everybody, I'm trying to run Qemu with libvirtd (KVM hypervisor) on a host with Ubuntu 20.04. It seems to work if I use a local qcow2 image as drive, but does not start if I specify an image stored on a GlusterFS server. The error I get is

2021-06-07T09:42:18.103888Z qemu-system-x86_64: -drive file=gluster://,format=qcow2,if=none,id=drive-virtio-disk0,cache=none: Unknown protocol 'gluster'

I've already installed this package
and I can see the file in
I've also seen that Gluster should be supported by qemu-block-drivers provided by qemu-system-commons (

Should I change something in the default configuration to force libvirtd to use the GlusterFS storage driver?
