it doesn't matter if you use virtual servers or not. That's the point with
virtual servers. If the network linking them is working GlusterFS will work
as it would with real servers. Try to separate where the problem is first.
If you think the problem is at GlusterFS please provide more details. What
are your config files? What are you doing? What commands are you using? What
are you seeing? Otherwise there is no way one can guess what you are doing

Best regards,
