I can see that Amar has already committed the changes and those are visible on https://docs.gluster.org/en/latest/Administrator%20Guide/Thin-Arbiter-Volumes/

Hi Ashish, 

Can someone commit the doc change I have already proposed ? 
At least, the doc will clarify that fact . 

Best Regards,

Hi David, 

Creation of thin-arbiter volume is currently supported by GD2 only. The command " glustercli " is available when glusterd2 is running. 
We are also working on providing thin-arbiter support on glusted however, it is not available right now.

We are setting up a thin-arbiter and hope someone can help with some questions. We've been following the documentation from https://docs.gluster.org/en/latest/Administrator%20Guide/Thin-Arbiter-Volumes/ . 

1. What release of 5.x supports thin-arbiter? We tried a "gluster volume create" with the --thin-arbiter option on 5.5 and got an "unrecognized option --thin-arbiter" error. 

2. The instruction to create a new volume with a thin-arbiter is clear. How do you add a thin-arbiter to an already existing volume though? 

3. The documentation suggests running glusterfsd manually to start the thin-arbiter. Is there a service that can do this instead? I found a mention of one in https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1579786 but it's not really documented. 

Thanks in advance for your help,
