But you need to have gluster installed!? Which version?
Samba4.1 does not compile with the lates glusterfs 3.4 on CentOs 6.4.

Hello Everyone,

Thank you for showing interest in this feature.

We are actively working on this and recently fixed a few bugs. We are testing the patches and they will be upstream after that.(estimating it to be fairly tested in 2 weeks).

Here is a quick overview of the new integration method

 Windows Client
   SAMBA (version 3.6)
VFS PLUGIN (it a samba vfs plugin, samba allows you to write plugin which becomes recipient for calls which were originally supposed to go to VFS layer. It is activated on per-share basis.)
-------: Boundaries of a box/node
 ||     : Network path
V     : Data transfer in both direction in same box

Change regarding usage is you need to have gluster shares defined in smb.conf in this way.
The entry should look like
comment = For samba export of volume <volname>
vfs objects = glusterfs
glusterfs:volume = <volname>
path = /
read only =no
guest ok = yes

We will upload the detailed user-guide and other documentation soon.
