Hello all.

I have a Gluster volume that I'd need to move to a different server.
The volume is 4x10TB bricks accessed via FC (different LUNs) on an old 
I have no extra space to create a copy of all the data, so I'd need to 
hide the LUNs from the old server and make 'em visible to the new ("move 
the disks"), w/o copying data.

Can I just do something like this?
- stop volume
- umount bricks
- copy volume state files to new server (which ones?)
- map LUNs to new server
- mount bricks on new server (maintaining the same path they had on old 
- start glusterd on new server
- start volume
