[Gluster-users] Manually move data between bricks

I have a distributed gluster volume on 2 nodes. This volume had 1 brick 
on each node and by time it became full. I have added 3 extra bricks and 
issued a rebalance on the volume, yet one of the original bricks is 
still 100% full and this causes the dht-translator to throw disk full 
errors on clients when it attempts to write on this brick as it seems it 
does not take into account the fact that this brick is full.

The question is whether it is possible to manually move data from the 
full brick to other bricks with plenty of available space and if 
possible, how can I do it (I suppose it is not just a volume stop and 
data mv)
