Description Richard W.M. Jones 2013-05-20 09:56:46 EDT
Description of problem:

When trying to create a gluster network disk like this:

    <disk device="disk" type="network">
      <source protocol="gluster" name="/test/rjones/test.img">
        <host name="f18gluster"/>
      <target dev="sda" bus="scsi"/>
      <driver name="qemu" type="raw"/>
      <address type="drive" controller="0" bus="0" target="0" unit="0"/>

libvirt moans about the port not being specified:

libguestfs: error: could not create appliance through libvirt: XML error: missing port for host [code=27 domain=20]

While this is literally true, it shouldn't be necessary to
specify a port number.  The qemu command line allows you to
omit it.  This is valid:

    -drive file=gluster+tcp://f18gluster/test/rjones/test.img,format=raw,id=hd0,if=none \

and qemu or gluster or something else picks the appropriate
port number automagically.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

    domain: make port optional for network disks
    Only sheepdog actually required it in the code, and we can use 7000 as the
    default---the same value that QEMU uses for the simple "sheepdog:VOLUME"
    syntax.  With this change, the schema can be fixed to allow no port.
