During a peer probe, the peers exchange data between each other several
times, before successfully finishing the probe. The peers move through
several states when these exchanges happen. The 'Peer in Cluster' state is
the final state reached on a successful probe. The other states are
intermediary states, movement among which depend on these data exchanges.
If one of these data exchanges doesn't happen, then the peer gets stuck in
the state.
Some of the exchanges also happen when a peer starts up, so a restart can
sometimes solve these kind of issues.

If you could get the glusterd logs, for the peer we could try to find out
why the peer got stuck in the first place.
