[Gluster-users] Problem with add-brick

I am trying to add a fourth server to my distributed gluster setup, but the
'add-brick' command keeps failing.  I've tried several times, each time
cleaning the new server by stopping and uninstalling gluster, unmounting
and mkfs the new filesystem, deleting all gluster files
(/var/log/glusterfs, /var/lib/glusterfs), then re-installing.  On fs1, I
remove-brick the new server and detach the peer, and then start over.  It
keeps failing at the same point.

The servers have identical hardware and software.

What should I look for?

CentOS 7.2
Gluster 3.7.14-1

Server names are fs1, fs2, fs3 and the new server fs4.  Fs1, fs2 and fs3
have been running for several months.
