On starting glusterd, glusterfsd should have started by itself.
Could you share glusterd and brick log (on node B) so that we know why glusterfsd
didn't start?

Do you still see glusterfsd service running on node A? You can try running "gluster v start <VOLNAME> force"
on one of the nodes and check if all the brick processes started.

gluster volume status <VOLNAME> should be able to provide you with gluster process status.

On restarting the node, glusterfs process for mount won't start by itself. You will have to run
step 2 on node B again for it.

Once the glusterfsd process starts on node B too, glustershd -- self-heal-daemon -- for replicate volume
should start healing/syncing files that need to be synced. This deamon does periodic syncing of files.

If you want to trigger a heal explicitly, you can run gluster volume heal <VOLNAME> on one of the servers.
