> 1) At least when you use the volgen utility (in the 3.x Gluster versions) to create the config files and define RAID=1, it insists on pairs of bricks to implement this. While there is nothing that precludes multiple mirrors for RAID 1, I'm not sure Gluster accommodates that config. I may be completely wrong about this, but that has been my experience so far.

I'm not using Gluster 3.x.
THat example uses 3 bricks.

> 2) If Gluster does support multiple RAID 1 mirrors, you would need to do a 'ls -LR' on the top level directory of the glusterfs mount point to let Gluster see all the files and replicate accordingly. I think.

I'll give it a try, but doing a regular 'ls' didn't make the files 
appear in the gluster mount or in my /export.
