Thanks Kaleb and Edy!

I have now redone the cluster using the latest and greatest following
the above guide and repeated the same test I was doing before (the
rsync while loop) with success. I let (forgot) it run for about a day
and it was still chugging along nicely when I aborted it, so success

On to the next test; the catastrophic failure test- where one of the
servers dies, I'm having a more difficult time with.

1) I start with mounting the share over NFS 4.1 and then proceed with
writing a 8 GiB large random data file with 'dd', while "hard-cutting"
the power to the server I'm writing to, the transfer just stops
indefinitely, until the server comes back again. Is that supposed to
happen? Like this:

# dd if=/dev/urandom of=/var/tmp/test.bin bs=1M count=8192
# mount -o vers=4.1 hv03v.localdomain:/data /mnt/
# dd if=/var/tmp/test.bin of=/mnt/test.bin bs=1M status=progress
2434793472 bytes (2,4 GB, 2,3 GiB) copied, 42 s, 57,9 MB/s

(here I cut the power and let it be for almost two hours before turning
it on again)

dd: error writing '/mnt/test.bin': Remote I/O error
2325+0 records in
2324+0 records out
2436890624 bytes (2,4 GB, 2,3 GiB) copied, 6944,84 s, 351 kB/s
# umount /mnt

Here the unmount command hung and I had to hard reset the client.

2) Another question I have is why some files "change" as you copy them
out to the Gluster storage? Is that the way it should be? This time, I
deleted eveything in the destination directory to start over:

# mount -o vers=4.1 hv03v.localdomain:/data /mnt/
# rm -f /mnt/test.bin
# dd if=/var/tmp/test.bin of=/mnt/test.bin bs=1M status=progress
8557428736 bytes (8,6 GB, 8,0 GiB) copied, 122 s, 70,1 MB/s
8192+0 records in
8192+0 records out
8589934592 bytes (8,6 GB, 8,0 GiB) copied, 123,039 s, 69,8 MB/s
# md5sum /var/tmp/test.bin 
073867b68fa8eaa382ffe05adb90b583  /var/tmp/test.bin
# md5sum /mnt/test.bin 
634187d367f856f3f5fb31846f796397  /mnt/test.bin
# umount /mnt

Thanks in advance!
