Before step 6, there are some files(a,b,c), that are created at step 5 , in the A brick when volume type is distribute.
Should the files(a,b,c) in A brick be move to another directory before step 6?
And move back, after step 6, when the volume type is changed to replicate?

Thank you for answering my question. And I have another question to ask.
If there has been some file(c, d, e) in the B node brick before step 6 as below.And the file c is diffetent with file c created in A mount poin.

Any new brick that you add to a volume has to be empty. It must not contain data or be a brick that was  a part of another volume etc.
Hope that helps,

3.gluster volume start gv0                                                                                                     //run on A node
4.mount -t glusterfs gluster                                                                //run on A node
5.create some file(a,b,c) in directory gluster                                                                         //run on A node
6.gluster volume add-brick gv0 replica 2 force                  //run on A node
7. gluster volume heal gv0 info split-brain                                                                             //run on A node
8.gluster volume heal gv0 info fulll                                                                                        //run on A node
After step 7, should some split-brain entries be present?
After step 8, should all files (a,b,c,d,e) will be replicate in volume gv0?
If so, how the file c be replicated when the file c is different between A brick  and B brick?
