We a 6 servers cluster in distribute/replicate running on 3.0.5.
Yesterday we drop a node in favor of a a new one.
So we umount and the stopped all the gluster servers, then modify the
client vol file to point the new server instead of the old one and
then restart/remount the cluster.
At the beginning the new node was empty, so we did a ls -lR on a dir
on the gluster storage to see the new node filled with data.
Hope this help, cheers,
