In GlusterFS 3.1, what is the proper procedure if you need to reboot one or more servers that serve distributed volumes? 

Do you have to umount the clients first, then do a "gluster volume stop f00" on one of the servers (assuming only 1 volume), reboot, "gluster volume start f00", then remount the clients? 

Or just a "gluster volume stop...", reboot, "gluster volume start..." 

Or can you simply reboot and the clients accessing files on the brick(s) on the server will simply wait for the server to come back up, nice and graceful like :-)
