Yep, took us a while to find a solution here tbh.

I find AutoFS hard to configure, especially with gluster, so here is
an example :

mkdir /etc/auto.map.d /etc/auto.master.d /mnt/autofs

In /etc/auto.master.d/master.autofs :

  /mnt/autofs     /etc/auto.map.d/master.autofs

In /etc/auto.map.d/master.autofs :

  applicatif    					 -fstype=glusterfs,defaults,_netdev,backupvolfile-server=other_node        localhost:/applicatif

With this, /mnt/autofs/applicatif will automatically mount the /applicatif volume.
