[Gluster-devel] Client side translators doubt

  I sent a msg at the IRC and got no feedback... the message was long, so
I'm copying it here.

  I'm trying some volumes configurations with 2 nodes, each one having a
gluster client and server running.

  Both clients have each one a volume related to my translator, which has
as sub volumes two "protocol/client" subvolumes (one subvol pointing to the
local node's IP/vol and another pointing to the remote node IP/vol).

  This works OK, and here comes the problem: when I try to change the local
vol at the client side from a "protocol/client" type to a "posix" type the
read breaks with -1 (operation not permitted). Since the access is local
this would make sense to don't go through the client/server protocol stack,
but access directly through posix translator.

  I don't see why it shouldn't work. The only different thing is the same
backend directory is used by protocol/client and posix translators in this
case... this is allowed?
