Hi Mike,

Are you looking for HA or the NFS server or HA of glusterFS itself ? Can you please explain your system a little more and also tell us what you want to achieve.

Subject: [Gluster-users] Gluster client and HA

I was under the impression that by configuring a system as a client
connected to 4 server nodes that if one of the nodes went down the client
would still be able to access the data from some kind of failover to the
other nodes. However I set up a test an failed the server that was listed as
the last connected server from the log file and attempted to access the
exported/mounted filesystem on the client and recieved an "Stale NFS file
handle" error. Also here is some messages from the log file:

cf02: connection to failed (No route to host)
[2010-02-08 11:09:24] W [fuse-bridge.c:722:fuse_attr_cbk] glusterfs-fuse:
88: LOOKUP() / => -1 (Stale NFS file handle)

Is it not possible for a client to have HA to the exported filesystem?
