I haven't needed to touch any VOL files with my fresh 3.2.5 install on 
CentOS 6.2.

I just followed the instructions from the Admin Guide here:

Took 5 minutes to set up my 4 peers, and create 3 different test 
volumes.  Everything used the command line "gluster" CLI:

   > gluster peer ...
   > gluster volume ...

The service was started using the CentOS init.d script:

   > service glusterd restart

And I found all the RPMS for CentOS 6.2 already compiled for me:


It really couldn't have been much easier :-)  I'm going to be running my
