[Gluster-users] New Brick Not Showing On Remote Mounts

And how large are the gluster bricks ?

It seems strange that it didn't change size after adding the new brick.

What is your gluster's cluster version ?
It will be nice to wait for the rebalance. 

I hope you have noticed the difference between 'rebalance start' and 'rebalance start force' as described here:

The command I used for rebalance was "gluster volume rebalance data start", where data is the name of my volume

I searched through the mailing list, but didn't see any pointers. Does a rebalance need to finish before the additional volume will show in remote mounts?
