This is possible.
You first create a single brick volume on the first server. Note that
this is not a replica volume right now.
# gluster volume create <volume-name> <server-1>:<brick-path>

After migration and re-installing the 2nd server, you add the new
server to the GlusterFS trusted pool.
# gluster peer probe <server-2>

And add a replica brick the volume you created earlier,
# gluster volume add-brick <volume-name> replica 2 <server-2>:<brick-path>

I'm not sure this is possible yet. Krutika or Pranith can answer this.
