[Gluster-users] Replica brick not working

Dear All,

I have two servers, storage and storage2.
The storage2 had a volume called storage.
I then decided to add a replica brick (storage).

I did this in the following way:

1. sudo gluster peer probe storage (on storage server2)
2. sudo gluster volume add-brick storage replica 2 

Then I was getting the following error:
volume add-brick: failed: Operation failed

But, it seems the brick was somehow added, as when checking on storage2:
sudo gluster volume info storage
I am getting:
Status: Started
Number of Bricks: 1 x 2 = 2
Transport-type: tcp
Brick1: storage2:/data/data-cluster
Brick2: storage:/data/data-cluster

So, seems ok here, however, when doing:
sudo gluster volume heal storage info
I am getting:
Volume storage is not of type replicate/disperse
Volume heal failed.

Also, when doing
sudo gluster volume status all

I am getting:
Status of volume: storage
Gluster process                       TCP Port  RDMA Port  Online  Pid
Brick storage2:/data/data-cluster    49152     0          Y       2160

Self-heal Daemon on storage          N/A       N/A        N       N/A

Task Status of Volume storage

Any idea please?
