volume file of server 1 is as follow:
------------begin -----------
volume brick
        type storage/posix
        option directory /home/gfs-data

volume locks
        type features/posix-locks
        subvolumes brick

volume server
        type protocol/server
        option transport-type tcp/server
        option transport.socket.listen-port 6996
        option transport.socket.bind-address
        subvolumes locks
        option auth.addr.brick.allow *
        option auth.addr.locks.allow *
any mistake in the volume file?

i had noticed the chain, but it still doesn't work. i refered to much
information  searched on the internet,but most of then are related to
the older version, and little helpful to solve the problem.    im so
puzzled and confused~~~~~
