[Gluster-users] RAID-1 volumes

Running glusterfs-volgen produces two volume files.(server and client files)

First the start the glusterfs server (say,xen-0)  using command 
glusterfsd -f /path/to/server/export.vol -l gs.log 
then check your log file to make sure server started successfully.Then login to client machine (xen-1) and start glusterfs client,
glusterfsd -f /path/to/client/mount.vol /your_mount_point -l gc.log 

run df command to verify glusterfs is mounted.

Hi folks...

I have some (many) doubt with repicated volumes with GlusterFS...

I have to nodes, with CentOS, kernel compile with Xen-unstable 
(with remus support).
Here the server config file:

## file auto generated by /usr/local/bin/glusterfs-volgen (export.vol)
# Cmd line:
# $ /usr/local/bin/glusterfs-volgen --name cluster --raid 1 
xen-0:/data/export/sda5 xen-1:/data/export/sda5

volume posix1
  type storage/posix
  option directory /data/export/sda5

volume locks1
    type features/locks
    subvolumes posix1

volume brick1
    type performance/io-threads
    option thread-count 8
    subvolumes locks1

volume server-tcp
    type protocol/server
    option transport-type tcp
    option auth.addr.brick1.allow *
    option transport.socket.listen-port 6996
    option transport.socket.nodelay on
    subvolumes brick1

[root at xen-0 glusterfs]# df
Sist. Arq.           1K-blocos      Usad Dispon.   Uso% Montado em
/dev/sda2             50994936  12797368  35565320  27% /
tmpfs                   480764         0    480764   0% /dev/shm
/dev/sda5            102348276       544 102347732   1% /data/export/sda5

My question is: how I configure the client site???

Thanks a lot....
