[Gluster-users] NFS crashes - bug 1010241

Also if OP is on non-supported gluster 3.4.x rather than RHSS or at 
least 3.5.x, and given sufficient space, how about taking enough hosts 
out of the cluster to bring fully up to date and store the data, syncing 
the data across, updating the originals, syncing back and then adding 
back the hosts you took out to to the first backup?
