Hello list,

i've created my first sheepdog cluster and formated it with:
# collie cluster format -b farm --copies=2

i see 4 nodes:
# collie node list
M   Id   Host:Port         V-Nodes       Zone
-    0      64 1694433290
-    1      64 1711210506
-    2      64 1727987722
-    3      64 1744764938

i then created an image with:
# ./qemu-img create sheepdog:testsheep 320G
Formatting 'sheepdog:testsheep', fmt=raw size=343597383680

When i then boot my kvm with:
# kvm ... -drive 
-device virtio-blk-pci,drive=drive-virtio0,id=virtio0

I see my block device vda BUT all file I/O only goes to and 
only fills the drive on

! An important note !
My kvm host is NOT part of the corosync cluster as it uses cman and 
corosync XML from proxmox. I haven't found any documenation which told 
me if this could be the problem.
