Hi Ramos,

You can try looking into replace-brick option.

With that, you don't need to add and them remove bricks (as you are trying to phase out existing bricks).

With regards,

Hi All,

My disks are running out of space and need to increase, would it be
possible if i add a new disk. then add it as a new brick.
then once all the files are synched i can remove the old brick? i am
currently running a replicated volumes on 2 servers. e.g.

mygluster volume has:

Brick1:  server1:/glusterdisk1
Brick2:  server2:/glusterdisk2

i will add 2 new bricks

Brick3:  server1:/newglusterdisk1
Brick4:  server2:/newglusterdisk2

once brick3 and brick4 are synched. i will remove Brick1 and Brick2.

is this the proper way? any other better way?
