Hi Ryan:

You may use the 'backupvolfile-server' option while mounting. According to
RHS documentation:

*backupvolfile-server=server name - name of the backup volfile server to
mount the client. If this option is added while mounting fuse client, when
the first volfile server fails, then the server specified in
backupvolfile-server option is used as volfile server to mount the client. *

# mount -t glusterfs -o
server1:/test-volume /mnt/glusterfs
