[Gluster-users] Switching bricks

I'm about to bump a 1x3 (replicated) volume up to 2x3, but I just realised the 3 new servers
are physically in the same datacenter. Is there a safe way to switch a brick from the first
replica set with one from the second replica set ?

The only way I see how would be to go down to replica 2, removing a brick from the first replica,
then add 2 of the new servers as disperese (at that point the volume would be 2x2),
then go up to replica 3 adding the third one plus the one I removed earlier.
That should work, right ? There is no other "better" way of doing it ?
