the following are files of pool and volume.

storage pool is based on logical(LVM) and iscsi,now I create volume
specified the format to "qcow2"

<pool type='logical'>

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
     <capacity unit="GB">1</capacity>
          <format type="qcow2" />

*the problmes is :when  the volume created successfully,However, the
volume's format is 'raw'*

like this

image: /dev/pool_190/volume1
*file format: raw*
virtual size: 1.0G (1073741824 bytes)
disk size: 0

how to resolve this troublesome.

libvirt :0.9.8
