This brings up an issue I've been wondering about. With the old style
(vol-file-on-the-clients based) mounting, there was no single point of
failure when it came to mounting (assuming, of course, that if the first
server listed in the vol file was down, the gluster client would try the
next one). In the syntax quoted above, if that particular server happens
to be down, the mount will fail.
Is there any way in 3.1.1 to avoid that SPOF?
