The default transport-type is 'tcp' in 3.1.x version, hence you don't need
to specify any transport type for tcp.

What was the earlier error in glusterd's log file ? 'glusterd.vol' should
not be edited by anyone, hence its not documented anywhere. Also, we changed
the default port from 6996 to 24007 in 3.1.x version, so obviously there is
nothing on 6996 after you upgraded.

let us know what exactly was the problem in upgrading.
