[Gluster-users] GFID Mismatch - Automatic Correction ?

We have a 2 data node plus 1 arbiter node replicate gluster volume running gluster 3.8.5. Clients are also using 3.8.5.

One of the data nodes failed the other night, and whilst it was down, several files were replaced on the second data node / arbiter (and thus the filesystem path was linked to a new GFID).

When the broken node was restarted, these files were in a gfid mismatch state. I know how to manually correct them, but was wondering if there is an automated way ?

I thought the cluster.favorite-child-policy volume setting of majority would work, but it made no difference. Clients were still getting Input/output error when attempting to access those files.
