Hi list

I'm new with GlusterFS. I managed to compile and install the current
GlusterFS on two machines. I configured them as "distributed,
replicated volumes" according to the wiki.

glusterfsd is now running on both systems. However, they don't
communicate with each other and the data is not replicated. I'm
looking for a tutorial, or more advanced how-to. If I get Glusterfs
running, I'd like to contribute a tutorial, but I'm missing some basic
information about how GlusterFS works.

As far as I can see, GlusterFS has both a server and client. The
client can be used in conjunction with FUSE to mount a, let's say,
distributed volume that's spread over multiple Gluster servers. That's
all I know or was able to find out.

Hope I'm clear.
