Here is a link to my startup script - it will gracefully (or forcefully) umount the client GlusterFS mounts on startup, shutdown, or as called.


Just remove the /etc/init.d/glusterd stop logic, and you should be fine.

No comments on the coding ... "Dammit Martin, I'm DOCTOR not a PROGRAMMER!" :-)

Would it work to just umount the share that the client is working through?
That is, if you have

 mount -t glusterfs localhost:/blah /mnt/blah


 umount /mnt/blah

should get the client out of your way, right? Doesn't take it out of the
process list, but it should be concerned with your ext4 volume after that,
that I can see.
