Hi Mohan,
Sorry, I did not understand your question properly. glusterfs cannot be used
to directly mount disk based file systems, in the sense that If a filesystem
is already mounted, only then it can be used to export(/mount). In your
example, the filesystem on which "/home/export" is present is already
mounted somewhere, glusterfs is just using it as backend.
