[Gluster-users] issue reading gluster area

We had a machine with 2 hardware raid drives/partitionscombined into a 
single gluster drive. It was running Centos 6.7 and gluster 3.5? at time 
of OS disk crash. The 2 raid disks that made up the gluster bricks were 
not affected by OS reinstall.

We had to reinstall Centos 6.7 and glusterfs on that machine, I 
installed Gluster 3.3.1 to be compatible with other machines running 
gluster at the site. I am able to mount both xfs disks and browse all 
files. I am able to create the gluster distributed (not replicated) 
volume, and start it, however I am unable to browse to it.

>From /var/log/messages I get:

May 25 21:11:55 mseas-data2 GlusterFS[2085]: [2016-05-25 
21:11:55.415989] C [inode.c:218:__is_dentry_cyclic] 0-data-volume/inode: 
detected cyclic loop formation during inode linkage. inode 
(00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000001) linking under itself as gluster-data

Since this is a distributed volume, can I delete the gluster volume, 
delete the .glusterfs directory on each disk and recreate the volume? Do 
I need to upgrade to 3.5 or 6?

Or can you give me correct procedure to recover?
