Well, how do you expect other hosts to translate FQDNs then?

Based on this contents, you should be able to ping both
"KVM-Ubuntu-GNS3-Server-17" and "KVM-Ubuntu-GNS3-Server-17.04"

Yup, so the NSS module is working. Also, it's worth noting that NSS
module is meant to be single host only. I mean, it isn't a DNS server or
something. It's purely local. Although, based on the contents of the
files both names should work, with and without trailing .04;

Again, if you want DNS record for this name, you need to put the record
into the DNS server. Libvirt does not do that for you.
