Hi, all,

I've searched through the archives and saw that this has come up before, 
but it was not clear what the best way was to accomplish this.  I'm 
currently on 3.2.3 and would like to convert a two-brick distribute 
volume to a four-brick disribute-replicate volume.  Would editing the 
vol file directly by encapsulating the bricks I want to replicate in the 
replicate translator, then encapsulating that in the distribute 
translator be the way to go, then ls -RA to trigger a self-heal ?  Is 
there a way to do this from the gluster console command?
