Hi Gluster users,

I have a newbie question.

I would like to implement Gluster system for my customer, but this customer
have one big issue.

The power supply to their office is not stable. It has happens many times,
that the power will be disrupted without warning.

My question is, when this kind of thing happen, how should I properly
recover the gluster cluster?

Should I start one node, make sure it is ok, then start another node, then
probe this node, make sure the cluster is working, then continue with other
node, adding it to the cluster one at a time?

What if one of the node develop filesystem error, and it corrupts the data?
Should I wipe the disk clean, then add to the cluster?

Appreciate ideas on basic recovery technique if all the node is down at the
same time.
