[Gluster-users] Symbolic Links under .glusterfs deleted

Running distributed gluster 5.10 with 6 node and 2 bricks on each node (12
in total)
Due to some reason the files under <dir>/.glusterfs were deleted.
Post that we have loads of broken symlinks, but the data on the disks exist
Due to this, even though the file is present, ls on the folder does not
show the file, but I can access the file using the complete file path.

Steps to reproduce:
Stop gluster
Umount brick
Run `rm -rf <mnt_dir>/.glusterfs/
Mount brick
Start gluster

The total storage space remains the same, we can access the data using
absolute path, but
we are not able to see the files in the folder.
This is very critical setup for us, we cannot afford any data loss and are
heavily dependent.
Kindly revert back with the solution at the earliest.
