[Gluster-users] gluster volume create failure

Im trying to follow this guide to set up a simple cluster:

But when I issue this command :
gluster volume create glustervol01 replica 2

I get the following eror:
volume create: glustervol01: failed: The brick is a mount point. Please create a
sub-directory under the mount point and use that as the brick
directory. Or use 'force' at the end of the command if you want to
override this behavior.

Am I doing something wrong ? The guide tells you to 'mkdir -p
/export/brick1', and add '/dev/glusterfsvol/glusterfslv1
/export/brick1 xfs defaults 1 2' to /etc/fstab. So yeah,
/exports/brick is a mount point. You just created it. I dont get it...
