I can tell you exactly how this happened. I added the one machine as a
peer and then when I tried the volume creation line, I got the error that
the system I was typing on was "not a friend," so I figured I should add
it as a peer. Interestingly, that removed this error and gave me this
other one. So I started fresh to reproduce the first error

Creation of volume glustervol has been unsuccessful
Host not a friend (I'm typing on
