The version of libvirt on the both hosts is too old. You need at least
libvirt 0.6.4, and virtinst 0.500.0 or later IIRC. Then you need to make
sure that your storage is part of a libvirt storage pool (basically make
/image on the server a libvirt directory pool: virsh pool-define-as
--type dir --target /images)
