[Gluster-users] Replacing Failed Server Failing

I think you might be mixing the approach.Basically you have 2 options:
Create brand new system, use different hostname and then add it to the TSP (Trusted Storage Pool).Then you need to remove the bricks(server + directory combination ) owned by the previous system and then add the new bricks . 
Use the same hostname as the old system and restore from backup the gluster directories (both the one in '/etc' and in '/var/lib').If your gluster storage was also affected, you will need to recover the bricks from backup or remove the old ones from the volume and recreate them.
Can you describe what you have done so far (logically) ?

We had to replace one of our Gluster Servers in our Trusted Pool this 
week (node1).

The new server is now built, with empty folders for the bricks, peered 
to the old Nodes (node2 & node3).

We basically followed this guide: 

We are using the same/old IP address.

So when we try to do a `gluster volume sync node2 all` we get a `volume 
sync node2 all : FAILED : Staging failed on node2. Please check log file 
for details.`

The logs all *seem* to be complaining the there are no volumes on node1 
- which makes sense (I think) because there *are* no volumes on node1.

If we try to create a volume on node1 the system complains that the 
volume already exists (on nodes 2& 3) - again, yes, this is correct.

So, what are we doing wrong?

Thanks in advance
