Description gzcwnk 2018-04-18 22:29:57 UTC
Description of problem:

Following documentation and I get this un-expected qualification that according to docs isnt what I expect.

===========
[root@glustep1 ~]# gluster volume create gv0 replica 2 glusterp1:/bricks/brick1/gv0 glusterp2:/bricks/brick1/gv0 glusterp3:/bricks/brick1/gv0 glusterp4:/bricks/brick1/gv0
Replica 2 volumes are prone to split-brain. Use Arbiter or Replica 3 to avoid this. See: http://docs.gluster.org/en/latest/Administrator%20Guide/Split%20brain%20and%20ways%20to%20deal%20with%20it/.
Do you still want to continue?
 (y/n) n

Usage:
volume create <NEW-VOLNAME> [stripe <COUNT>] [replica <COUNT> [arbiter <COUNT>]] [disperse [<COUNT>]] [disperse-data <COUNT>] [redundancy <COUNT>] [transport <tcp|rdma|tcp,rdma>] <NEW-BRICK>?<vg_name>... [force]

[root@glustep1 ~]# rpm -q glusterfs
glusterfs-4.0.1-1.el7.x86_64
[root@glustep1 ~]# gluster peer status
