I was wondering about virt-manager support for the file-sharing option between host and guest in RedHat, CentOS and Fedora.

This appears to be grey out and a complaint about the inability of the installed combination of
libvirt and qemu to support this option is displayed. The link below shows the virt-manager screen
WITHOUT the grey-out filesystem option.


For redhat based linuxes though this appears to be always greyed out in stock builds(even without 9p
and even when Qemu supports the file sharing option). Why is this?
