Thanks Vijay & Prashant. 

I will look the integrity of the state file you mentioned. But It was failing to resolve the bricks's IP address which I had got on my laptop after logging from home.
I corrected that and could work now, although I have some queries around ? IMO, it should not stop "glusterd" from starting ? and may allow to leave not-reachable volumes in "STOPPED" state as it supports "start /stop" states. I may be overlooking the bigger picture/usecase here. please correct. 

Chetan Risbud.

CC'ing gluster-users as this is the relevant mailer for this.

You seem to have an incomplete state file in 
/var/lib/glusterd/vols/<volname> and hence initialization of glusterd 
seems to have failed. Can you please check that out?
