With Gluster 3.1.1, you no longer need to do anything with the vol files.
If you create a volume like you did below, then you simply mount it like:

mount -t glusterfs /pool/mount

Gluster automatically gets the volume information when mounting.  This is
described at:


There is no need to do anything with the vol files you found in
/etc/glusterd, and in fact using these can cause some functionality such
as volume elasticity to break.

Subject: [Gluster-users] GlusterFS 3.1.1 - local volume mount

What is the desired operation mode for mounting local volumes to
re-export when creating volumes in an automated fashion?

Using gluster to create a new volume automagically does not place any
.vol files in /etc/glusterfs. I'm not sure if this is by design, but
it isn't documented.

Creating a new volume:
gluster volume create pool replica 2 transport tcp

I can mount this as follows:
glusterfs --volfile=/etc/glusterd/vols/pool/pool-fuse.vol /pool/mount

Should I make a local copy of the pool-fuse.vol volume file and place
it in /etc/glusterfs?
