[Gluster-users] Recovery from network failure

The file in question is a linux ISO. On Server01 I've copied it over to my
gluster mount and waited for it to be fully copied. Then on server02 I've
waited until about half of the file is replicated over and pulled the
network cable. Once the network cable is back in again no matter what I do I
cannot get it to sync the file back up. I did notice however that if I
reboot both of the servers then the corrupt image on Server02 is then
replicated over to Server01.

Should Gluster 2.0.6 be able to cope with something like this or is this a
2.1 feature?
