volgen will generate the files. Its like generating RPC stubs for client and server. You can do that on any machine, actually. Then you take the server and client files and put them on server. The client will fetch specification file from the server. Alternately you can also copy the vol file to the client, without turning on fetch spec.

Well, my manager wants me to try to get glusterfs working from the rpms
that the CentOS team has, so it's try to get 2.0.8 working. I started to
follow Chad's process... and ran into the same thing that started me on
this: his glusterfs-volgen has *no* --export-directory in the command.

Googling, I found <http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~ewalter/gluster/> which is, in
fact, 2.0.8. However, there's things I still don't get. Now, I've
installed the server and common on all my nodes. I've only installed
common and client on my head node (this is an HPC cluster that I'm
building this on).

   1) where do I run the glusterfs-volgen command, on the head (client) box,
         or on each of the servers?
   2) if the latter, why does the command offer the option of listing
         multiple hosts?

I have, as the link I posted recommends, symlinked /etc/glusterfs with
/usr/local/etc/glusterfs. I've created the directories I want as part of
this on each of my nodes, all with the same name.

Once I get this part, then I'll get to the client side...
