[Gluster-users] Server side mount point confusion

Thanks for the clarification, it's what I had figured but wanted to make 

Have another question: is it possible to dynamically add AFR nodes 
(preferably without bringing down the server processes)?

I added an entry for a non-existent server yesterday in the AFR 
configuration and it appeared to hang the process when I would attempt 
to access the client data. It may have been due to invalid network 
configuration on the server I was working on. I would like to know 
before I experiment much more (and waste time) if it's even possible.
