Hi Kevin,

Thank you for your help, I manage to set it up!

But I have a question, it is possible to mount a volume at /gluster-data 
for example???

I cannot do:

opsld04:~ # cat /etc/auto.master
# Sample auto.master file
# This is a 'master' automounter map and it has the following format:
# mount-point [map-type[,format]:]map [options]
# For details of the format look at auto.master(5).
/     /etc/auto.map.d/master.autofs

and then :

opsld04:~ # cat /etc/auto.map.d/master.autofs

in auto.master file I have to set up a path other than root.

Did you manage to mount it  just at the first level of root, hanging from /
