Gluster Platform 3.0.5 doesn't have an option to switch first node.  However 
upcoming version 3.1 has Distributed Management Console which allows admin to 
manage the cluster through any available node.

This is done through Gluster Subscription Network.  Please check it GSN update 
tab in the management console UI.
