Ok, so assuming you have N glusterfsd servers (say 2 cause it does not really matter).
Now one of the servers dies.
You repair the machine and bring it back up.

I think 2 things:
1. You should not start glusterfsd on boot (you need to sync the HD first)
2. When it is up how do you re-sync it?

Do you rsync the underlying mount points?
If it is a busy gluster cluster it will be getting new files all the time.
So how do you sync and bring it back up safely so that clients don't connect to an incomplete server?
