I am trying to deploy glusterfs server (3.5.2-2) on LXCs running Ubuntu 14.0.4. However I cannot find a viable method to attach an additional logical volume block device to LXC except using dev loop. GlusterFS volume is created and started without any problem. But the client fails to mount to glusterfs volume.

ubuntu at gserv-5:~$ sudo gluster volume create gv2 replica 2 gserv-5:/data/brick1/gv2  gserv-6:/data/brick1/gv2
volume create: gv2: failed: Host gserv-6 is not in 'Peer in Cluster' state
ubuntu at gserv-5:~$ sudo gluster peer probe gserv-6
peer probe: success. 

ubuntu at gserv-6:~$ sudo gluster volume start gv3
volume start: gv3: success
ubuntu at gserv-6:~$ sudo gluster volume info
Volume Name: gv3
Type: Replicate
Volume ID: 822ac57e-d033-439a-9d98-c9162d00c50b
Status: Started
Number of Bricks: 1 x 2 = 2
Transport-type: tcp
Brick1: gserv-5:/data/brick1/gv3
Brick2: gserv-6:/data/brick1/gv3

ubuntu at gserv-6:~$ sudo mount -t glusterfs gserv-5:/gv3 /mnt/gv3 
Mount failed. Please check the log file for more details.

ubuntu at gserv-6:~$ mount
/dev/ubuntu-vg/lv-6 on / type ext3 (rw)
proc on /proc type proc (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev)
sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev)
... ...
/dev/loop3 on /data/brick1 type ext3 (rw)

I am new to GlusterFS. Could someone help me to troubleshoot this issue please? 
Thanks a lot!
