I have strong suspicion that qemu-kvm isn't capable of fail-over
switching in case its primary gluster server went down. At least
preliminary tests showed that on single node's (that is a part of
replicated gluster cluster setup) failure VM's disks are gone
(effectively are kinda pulled off for VMs).

Second server's IP isn't even seen among arguments of kvm process.

Moreover, /proc/mounts doesn't even contain any mention of
backup-volfile-servers or similar options.

End of message. Next message?
