[Gluster-users] problems with geo-replication on 3.7.4

So yes indeed I am using ZFS on Linux v.0.6.5 as filesystem behind Gluster. As operating system I use Debian 8.2 GNU/Linux. 

I also followed that documentation you mention in order to enable POSIX acltype for example on my ZFS volume.

I checked and on my two bricks as well as my slave I have the coreutils package with its stat util. I have read quite a few posts of people using ZFS with Gluster and this should not be a problem. Or is this maybe a new bug in GlusterFS?

By checking the log file 
/var/log/glusterfs/geo-replication/reptest/ssh%3A%2F%2Froot%40192.168.40.3%3Agluster%3A%2F%2F127.0.0.1%3Areptest.log I saw the following error message which might help to debug this issue:

[2015-09-18 23:41:09.646944] E [resource(/data/reptest/brick):226:logerr] Popen: ssh> bash: /nonexistent/gsyncd: No such file or directory

Does this ring any bells?

The underlying filesystem which you use seems like ZFS.

I don't have much idea about zfs. You may want to check this link:

As far as the error is concerned, it is trying to use stat command to 
get inode details.
(stat command is provided by coreutils, which is quite a basic package).

Could you share your System details? Is it a Linux system ?

XFS is the recommended and widely tested filesystem for glusterfs.
