[Gluster-users] trying to create a 3 brick CIFS NAS server

First of all:

EX: mount -t glusterfs /mnt/glustervol

Then If you have samba running you just point your share to /mnt/glustervol,
Ex: [test]

Then you do: mount -t cifs

This should work

Betreff: [Gluster-users] trying to create a 3 brick CIFS NAS server

Hi all
I am having problems connecting to a 3 brick volume from a Windows client
via samba/cifs. 

Volume Name: gluster-volume
Type: Distribute
Status: Started
Number of Bricks: 3
Transport-type: tcp

I created a /mnt/glustervol folder and then tried to mount the
gluster-volume to it using: 

mount -t cifs /mnt/glustervol

I get this error.... 

Retrying with upper case share name
mount error(6): No such device or address
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs)

What am I doing wrong here ?
