[Gluster-users] Heal Info Shows Split Brain, but "file not in split brain" when attempted heal

I am using Glusterfs 3.10.5 on CentOS7. A replicated distributed volume 
with a dist-rep hot tier.

During data migration, we noticed the tierd.log on one of nodes was 
huge. Upon review it seemed to be stuck on a certain set of files. 
Running a "gluster vol heal VOL info" showed that those same files 
caused problems in the tier, were in split brain.

So we went to fix split brain, we used "source-brick" and chose each of 
the bricks as the master to heal from.

    gluster vol heal VOL split-brain source-brick HOSTNAME:/brick/dir

However when we ran the heal command above, It spit out that each file 
was not in split brain and that it healed 0.

We then double checked the status of the files listed in heal info 
output with :

    getfattr -n replica.split-brain-status <path-to-file>

And it reported that the files were not in split brain....

Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
