>>gluster volume create gv0 replica 2 glusterp1:/bricks/brick1/gv0
This command will create a distributed-replicate volume(yes you have to opt
'y' at the warning message to get it created). We will have two
distribution legs each containing a replica pair(made of two bricks). When
a file is placed on the volume by a user, it will be placed in one of the
distribution legs which as mentioned earlier will have only two copies.
With replica 2 volumes(volume type: replicate /distributed-replicate) we
might hit split-brain situation. So we recommend replica 3 or arbiter
volume to provide consistency and availability.
