Hi have setup a two node replication glusterfs. After the initial
installation the "master" node was put into the datacenter and after two
week we moved the second one also to the datacenter.

But the sync has not started yet.

On the "master"

gluster> volume info all

Volume Name: datastore1

Type: Replicate

Volume ID: fdff5190-85ef-4cba-9056-a6bbbd8d6863

Status: Started

Number of Bricks: 1 x 2 = 2

Transport-type: tcp


Brick1: nas-01-data:/datastore

Brick2: nas-02-data:/datastore

gluster> peer status

Number of Peers: 1

Hostname: nas-02-data

Uuid: 71df9f86-a87b-481d-896c-c0d4ab679cfa

State: Peer in Cluster (Connected)

On the "slave"

gluster> peer status

Number of Peers: 1


Uuid: 97ef0154-ad7b-402a-b0cb-22be09134a3c

State: Peer in Cluster (Connected)

gluster> volume status all

Status of volume: datastore1

Gluster process   Port Online Pid


Brick nas-01-data:/datastore  49152 Y 2130

Brick nas-02-data:/datastore  N/A N N/A

NFS Server on localhost   2049 Y 8064

Self-heal Daemon on localhost  N/A Y 8073

NFS Server on  2049 Y 3379

Self-heal Daemon on  N/A Y 3384

There are no active volume tasks

I would like to run on the "slave" gluster volume sync nas-01-data

But then the virtual machines hosted will be unavailible is there another
way to start the replication ?
