I had a go at reproducing it last night Kevin with 3.8.4
- new volume
- Initial 2 bricks on two hosts
- copied a windows VM on to it
- Started some load (Crystal DiskMark in the VM)
- Added a 3rd brick and node
The 3rd bricks started healing right away and there were no issues.
Eventually it was all healed and a normal rep 3 volume. Tonight I'lll
compare the bricks with md5 but for now it seems ok.
- It was only one 40GB VM
- Not sure if the procedure is how it originally started for you.
If you'd like me to try a different process I can give it a goo, have
the space and time and the cluster has been quite for weeks - time to
break something :)
