I'm afraid this is the problem with gluster: everything works great on 
the happy path, but as soon as anything goes wrong, you're stuffed. 
There is neither recovery procedure documentation, nor detailled 
internals documentation (so you could work out for yourself what is 
going on and fix it). In my opinion, gluster is unsupportable in its 
current form.

For this reason I have recently stripped gluster out of a production 
network. We're back to using simple NFSv4 at the moment. At some point I 
will be evaluating ceph and maybe swift.

As you've observed, there's little point in having "resilient" copies of 
data if they are not retrievable in error scenarios.
