Carl - could you possibly provide an example of a configuration using an odd number of servers? glusterfs-volgen is unhappy when you don't give an even number.

Brock -
It is completely possible using Gluster File System. We haven't exposed that option via the Gluster Storage Platform GUI yet.

All the documentation refers to using multiples of 2 when setting up mirrored volumes. Also the Gluster Storage Platform will not allow it. Is this impossible and if so why?
