[Gluster-users] FW: cant mount gluster volume

 I have a 3 node gluster cluster that had 3.1.4 uninstalled and 3.3.1 installed.

I had some mounting issues yesterday, from a rocks 6.2 install to the cluster. I was able to overcome those issues and mount the export on my node. Thanks to all for your help.

However, I can only view the portion of files that is directly stored on the one brick in the cluster. The other bricks do not seem to be replicating, tho gluster reports the volume as up.

[root at mseas-data ~]# gluster volume info
Volume Name: gdata
Type: Distribute
Volume ID: eccc3a90-212d-4563-ae8d-10a77758738d
Status: Started
Number of Bricks: 3
Transport-type: tcp
Brick1: gluster-0-0:/mseas-data-0-0
Brick2: gluster-0-1:/mseas-data-0-1
Brick3: gluster-data:/data

The brick we are attaching to has this in the fstab file.
/dev/mapper/the_raid-lv_data /data              xfs     quota,noauto    1 0

but "mount -a" does not appear to do anything.
I have to run "mount -t xfs  /dev/mapper/the_raid-lv_data /data"
manually to mount it.

Any help with troubleshooting why we are only seeing data from 1 brick of 3 would be appreciated,
Steve Postma

 I am still unable to mount a new 3.3.1 glusterfs install. I have tried from one of the actual machines in the cluster to itself, as well as from various other clients. They all seem to be failing in the same part of the process.
