Bug Description

In ubuntu 14.04 LTS (Linux hio-converged 4.2.0-42-generic #49~14.04.1-Ubuntu SMP Wed Jun 29 20:22:11 UTC 2016 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux)

libvirt version: 1.2.2

using the following xml to define a storage pool (netfs-cifs.xml):
<pool type="netfs">
    <host name=""/>
    <dir path="Video"/>
    <format type='cifs'/>

I define the pool (virsh pool-define netfs-cifs.xml), build (virsh pool-build netfs-cifs) and then start it (virsh pool-start netfs-cifs)

results in the following error:
error: Failed to start pool netfs-cifs
error: internal error: Child process (/bin/mount -t cifs /tmp/cifs) unexpected exit status 1: mount.cifs: bad UNC (
