Was that error printed by the source or the destination qemu? It may be
a bug in libvirt for not explicitly requesting raw (we DO want the NBD
server to be raw, but need to be explicit so as to avoid unsafe probing).

Just because the underlying file on the disk is qcow2 does not impact
what the NBD is serving - the NBD connection MUST be raw, unless you
have a funky situation with a qcow2 file whose contents are also a
nested qcow2 encoding of data.
