Hey List,

I'm trying to test out using Gluster 3.4 for virtual machine disks. My
enviroment consists of two Fedora 19 hosts with gluster and qemu/kvm

I have a single volume on gluster called vmdata that contains my qcow2
formated image created like this:

qemu-img create -f qcow2 gluster://localhost/vmdata/test1.qcow 8G

I'm able to boot my created virtual machine but in the logs I see this:

[2013-09-16 15:16:04.471205] E [addr.c:152:gf_auth] 0-auth/addr:

I have turned off SELinux to be sure that isn't in the way. When I
look at the permissions on the file using ls -l I see the file is set
to 600, this doesn't seem right. I tried manually changing the
permission to 755 as a test and as soon as the machine booted it was
changed back to 600.

Any hints as to what is going on and how to get the disk functioning?
The machine will boot but as soon as anything is written to disk it
will hang forever.
