[Gluster-users] Replace replicate in single brick

From what I see, it doesn’t:
reset-brick <volname> <hostname:brick-path>

He showed the syntax for ‘replace-brick’ not ‘reset-brick’, which, since I am on 3.8.5, hopefully works when a source-brick is missing….
Anyone know if that would be true? Or do I have to upgrade to 3.9 to be able to replace a completely unavailable, missing brick replica?

I guess I will find out, since I could put the old disk back in with the errors if it must exist.

If you are using glusterfs 3.9 and want to give the replaced brick the same name as the old one, there is the reset-brick command. The commit message in http://review.gluster.org/#/c/12250/ gives you some information on the steps to run.
If you are okay with using a different name for the brick, then there is `gluster volume replace-brick <volname> <hostname:old brick> <hostname:new brick> commit force`. I think this command works from glusterfs 3.7.10 onward.

If reset-brick is used to replace a brick with another with the same name,  why this command ask for both source and destination brick name?
It would always be the same, if different, replace-brick command should be used.
