[Gluster-users] problem expanding a volume

I've had this issue recently. The error occurred because I tried adding a
brick that was previously part of another volume. If this is the case for
you, then this article may be helpful:

You'll need to install the 'attr' package to remove the attributes of the
brick directory that specify that it already belongs to another volume.
