[Gluster-users] backupvolfile-server (servers) not working for new mounts?

I have a gluster 4.1 system with three servers running 
Docker/Kubernetes.    The pods mount filesystems using gluster. is the primary server [A] and all mounts specify it with 
two other servers [ [B] and [C]] specified in 

I'm testing what happens when a server goes down.

If I bring down [B] or [C], no problem, everything restages and works.

But if I bring down [A], any *existing* mount continues to work, but any 
new mounts fail.  I'm seeing messages about all subvolumes being down in 
the pod.

But I've mounted this exact same volume on the same system (before I 
bring down the server) and I can access all the data fine.

Why the failure for new mounts?    I'm on AWS and all servers are in 
different availability zones, but I don't see how that would be an issue.

I tried using just backupvolfile-server and that didn't work either.
