Hi Gerald,

The volume and peer information is by default stored in /etc/glusterd
which I guess was wiped when you reinstalled.

This should help restore the correct settings

Alternatively I believe you can delete some files in /etc/glusterd
if you don't want to restore the volume.
Just not sure which ones :)

Best regards,
