gluster volume add-brick <volname> replica 3 arbiter 1 <arbiter 1> <arbiter
2> <arbiter 3>
is the command. It will convert the existing volume to arbiter volume and

Once they are successfully added, self heal should start automatically and
you can check the status of heal using the command,
gluster volume heal <volname> info
