Thanks, that worked. I copied /etc/glusterd/nfs/nfs-server.vol to the
other server, started glusterfsd and I could mount the volume via NFS
on a client.

That would be good. However, would it also be possible for this other
server to join as a non-contributing peer (i.e. it's not sharing its
disk) but act only as the NFS server? This way I don't need to copy
over the volume file manually and leave it to glusterd to set
everything up. Would be a nice stop-gap workaround until you guys can
implement the above mentioned feature.
