Hi Milos,
You need to follow the below steps:
1)once you identify server2, install the same version gluster packages as in server1
2) peer server2 from server1
3) do a "gluster volume add-brick <volname> replica 2 <server2 brickpath which you want as the replica pair>
The syncing of files in your gluster storage will happen automatically when self-heal deamon picks up the job. If you don't want to wait, issue a "gluster volume heal <volname>

Hi All,

I have a running GlusterFS volume with one brick, the actual server1.
I purchased a 2nd server and would like to add it as replica.

Could someone propose a tutorial? Should I first sync the files between 
server1 and server2? Thank you!

- Kindest regards,
