[Gluster-users] Problem with self-heal

I am running some test on top of v3.5.1 in my 2 nodes configuration with 
one disk each and replica 2 mode.

I have two servers connected by a cable. Through this cable I let 
glusterd communicate. I start dd to create a relatively large file. In 
the middle of writing process I disconnect the cable, so on one server 
(node1) I can see all data and on the other one (node2) I can see just a 
split of the file when writing is finished.. no surprise so far.

Then I put the cable back. After a while peers are discovered, 
self-healing daemons start to communicate, so I can see:

gluster volume heal vg0 info
Brick node1:/dist1/brick/fs/
/node-middle - Possibly undergoing heal
Number of entries: 1

Brick node2:/dist1/brick/fs/
/node-middle - Possibly undergoing heal
Number of entries: 1

But on the network there are no data moving, which I verify by df..

Any help? In my opinion after a while I should get my nodes 
synchronized, but after 20minuts of waiting still nothing (the file was 
2G big)

Thanks Milos
