The reset-brick command is introduced in 3.9.0 and not present in 3.7.6.
You can try using the same replace-brick command with the force option even
if you want to use the same name for the brick being replaced.
3.7.6 is EOLed long back and glusterfs-6 is the latest version with lots of
improvements, bug fixes and new features. The release schedule can be found
at . Upgrading to one of the maintained branch is highly recommended.

Those steps were needed in the older releases to set some metadata on the
good bricks so that heal should not happen from the replaced brick to good
bricks, which can lead to data loss. Since you are on 3.7.6, we have
automated all these steps for you in that branch. You just need to run the
replace-brick command, which will take care of all those things.
