Hello everybody on the list!
I have a problem creating volumes, I am on Amazon EC2, ubuntu 10.04 64-bit
Started with glusterfs version 3.1, then compiled glusterfs-3.1.1qa8 but the
same problem persists.

I want to create a single brick volume, where I will, in the future, add a
second brick for replication.
My command is as follows (gluster cli):
"create volume fileserver transport tcp files-01.kinkl.com:
I wait about a minute and after that i am returned to the gluster cli prompt
without any messages
The debug log has this http://pastebin.com/Y6DEa7yy

If I issue the same command like this: "sudo create volume fileserver
transport tcp files-01.kinkl.com:/var/www/fileserver",
I get the immediate response of "Creation of volume fileserver has been
unsuccessful" and in the logs i get the following three errors
[2010-11-16 17:42:21.201498] D
[glusterd-op-sm.c:5355:glusterd_op_set_cli_op] : Returning 16
[2010-11-16 17:42:21.201539] E
[glusterd3_1-mops.c:1357:glusterd_handle_rpc_msg] : Unable to set cli op: 16
[2010-11-16 17:42:21.201582] D
[glusterd-op-sm.c:4672:glusterd_op_send_cli_response] : Returning 0

files-01.kinkl.com is mapped to the internal Amazon Instance IP in
/etc/hosts, and when I do "peer status" I get:
Number of Peers: 1
Hostname: files-01.kinkl.com
Uuid: 68dac070-557a-4558-b762-d8c5fb0ad621
State: Peer in Cluster (Connected)

I don't know what else to try! Any ideas?
