AFAIK there are two ways you can trigger the self-heal

1. Use the gluster CLI "heal" command. I'm not sure why it didn't work for
you and needs to be investigated.

2. Running 'stat' on files on gluster volume mountpoint, So if you run stat
on the entire mountpoint, the files should be properly synced across all
the replica bricks.

*my two cents*
