[Gluster-users] Inconsistent issues with a client

The system is a 5 server, 20 brick distributed system with a hardware
configured RAID 6 underneath with xfs as filesystem.  This client is a data
collection node which transfers data to specific directories within one of
the gluster volumes.

I have a client with submounted directories (glustervolume/project) rather
than the entire volume.  Some files can be transferred no problem, but
others send an error about transport endpoint not connected.  The transfer
is handed by a rsync script triggered as a cron job.

When remotely connected to this client, user access to these files does not
always behave as they are set – 2770 for directories and 440.  Owners are
not always able to move the files, processes ran as the owners are not
always able to move files; root is not always allowed to move or delete
these file.

This process seemed to worked smoothly before adding another server and 4
storage bricks to the volume, logs indicate there were intermittent issues
at least a month before the last server was added.  While a new collection
device has been streaming to this one machine, the issue started the day

Is there another level for permissions and ownership that I am not aware of
that needs to be sync’d?
