Sorry: unfortunately it seems that I explained my setup/intentions in a very misleading way :-)
(English is not my native language, but I know this is a poor excuse)
What I meant is that I configured an hyperconverged oVirt+Gluster
cluster, but I added CTDB, Gluster-NFS and Samba on top (well, on the
bottom actually, since they too run on the hypervisor hosts) to allow
using Gluster-based storage also for general purpose use (not only for
The Gluster volumes meant for general purpose use are the only ones
accessed by means of NFS and/or Samba.
All oVirt-related uses are by means of FUSE-based mountpoints (since
oVirt 3.6.x has not been gfapi-enabled).
