[Gluster-users] Warning at mount when servers are missing

Hi all,
I made a misstake with my DNS the other day
so two servers were configured wrong and did not answer
on DNS.

I have a gluster cluster that is Distributed-Replicate
with the bricks: 2 x (2 + 1) = 6
Two of the servers did not exist in DNS (the same replicated pair),
and just doing a temporary mount, no errors or warnings when mounting,
and started to do my work.
After a while I realized that there were files missing
so I started to look in to it.
If you miss a replicated pair, gluster will quitly
mount the "rest" and you will only see half of your files.
To find this problem you have to look in the log files.

I think that is could be great to have a warning at
mount saying something like:
"Not all servers respond, you might not be able to see all files"
So you realize that you have a problem right away.
Running gluster version 8.2 on the client side.

Best regards
