[Gluster-users] One node goes offline, the other node can't see the replicated volume anymore

And for what it's worth, I just now looked and noticed rc.local does not really run last in the startup sequence anymore.  According to below, it only depends on the network being started.   So I could easily be trying my mounts before gluster ever gets fired up.

It's interesting to see that script - that's what's happens to me with 3.3.0. If I set gluster mounts to mount from fstab with _netdev, it hangs the boot completely and I have to go into single user mode (and edit it out of fstab) to recover, though gluster logs nothing at all. Autofs fails too (though I think that's autofs not understanding mounting an NFS volume from localhost), yet it all works on a manual mount.

Sad to see you're having trouble with 3.4. I hope you can make it work!
