Ah, if it is on the RHEV-H and not a RHEL-H (or however that is called)
you definitely are very restricted... Messing around with the op-version
is not really nice, but that might be the easiest approach indeed. Atin
surely is the one of the right guys to help out with that.

Fortunately, the next Red Hat Gluster Storage packages will be based on
glusterfs-3.7 with only minor (and compatible!) changes. This is
supposed to prevent difficulties like this that are caused by the RHGS
glusterfs-3.6 version.
