Hi Kevin,

There could be two known issues.

1. Check if last IP address of storage pool is free by pinging to it.  If the IP 
address is in use, please adjust storage pool to make sure the last IP address 
is not in use.

2. As the installer tries to connect to first server using eth0, you can connect 
all NICs of new server into the switch where first server is connected.  After 
installation, you can switch back NIC cabling as per your required setup.

Both issues were fixed in our upcoming 3.1 release and Platform 3.1Alpha0 is 
available for testing.  You can download it from http://dev.gluster.com/downloads/
