Dear Ted and Ashish 

Thanks for your helpful response. Unfortunately I’m running the epel version for my SL6.8 distro so that’s 3.7.

So, I’ve tried to remove the bad brick. (I am running a 3x2 system), but I get the following error

gluster volume remove-brick A01 replica 1 m55:/export/brickA01_1 force
Removing brick(s) can result in data loss. Do you want to Continue? (y/n) y
volume remove-brick commit force: failed: need 3(xN) bricks for reducing replica count of the volume from 2 to 1

Any help gratefully received.
