Samuele - 
That happens automatically now. We do this so you can dynamically add and remove storage to your Gluster cluster, plus users no longer have to manage or edit config files.

but this then lead to a question: how can i provide to a client a pool 
of server to use for ha without relying to hearbeat/rhcs or other 
cluster suite ? i assumed - correct me if i'm wrong - that by using the 
vol file client would be able to go to the next server if one was down . 

many thanks
