after  rebuild,  are the both nodes identical? If so, did you set extended
attributes appropriately for the files you repaired or created (afr uses
extended attributes to synchronise files/directories b/w its children).

Is there anything bad that will happen if I start the

Did you change the glusterfs configuration? If so, can you send the
configuration files before and after the failure?

A centipede was happy quite, until a toad in fun,
Said, "Prey, which leg comes after which?",
This raised his doubts to such a pitch,
He fell flat into the ditch,
Not knowing how to run.
