[Users] GlusterFS Distributed Replicate

As I said in a previous email, I have this configuration with Ovirt 3.3 
1 Ovirt Engine
2 Hosts Centos 6.5

I successfully setup GlusterFS. I created a distributed replicate volume 
with 2 bricks : host1:/gluster and host2:/gluster.

Then, I created a storage storage_gluster POSIXFS with the option 
glusterfs and I gave the path "host1:/gluster".

First, I'm rather surprised I have to specify an host for the storage as 
I wish to have a distribute replicated storage. I expected to specify 
both hosts.

Then I create a VM on this storage. The expected behaviour if I shutdown 
host1 should be that my VM keeps running on the second brick. Yet, not 
only I lose my VM but host2 is in a non operationnal status because one 
of its data storage is not reachable.

Did I miss something in the configuration ? How could I get the wanted 
behaviour ?

Thanks a lot,
Grégoire Leroy
