Thanks. I did see that mentioned in some postings but although it does not complain about that mount option when I try it, I still don’t see it listed on the mounted filesystem. I just see the defaults:

root at host> mount -t glusterfs -o backup-volfile-servers= /mnt
root at host> mount | grep ov1data1 on /mnt type fuse.glusterfs (rw,default_permissions,allow_other,max_read=131072)

Hi Simon,
In latest versions of glusterfs , 'backupvolfile-server' has changed to  'backup-volfile-servers' .

Can anyone please comfirm the correct syntax for defining a backup volfile server? Or is this no longer needed in 3.5 (which I think this is suggesting: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=986429).

I try this and don’t get any errors from the mount command:

root at host> mount -t glusterfs -o backupvolfile-server= /mnt

But when I check the mount, I don’t see the option displayed:

root at host> mount | grep data1 on /mnt type fuse.glusterfs (rw,default_permissions,allow_other,max_read=131072)

The system itself is CentOS 6.5 and I am running the following rpm versions:

root at host> rpm -qa | grep gluster

Many thanks,
