Description Rahul Hinduja 2012-07-31 05:20:13 EDT
Description of problem:

Currently replace brick only works when the volume is Started. I think it should still alow the replace brick when the volume is stopped. In a general case if I wish there are no writes when I start the replace brick, I would stop the volume and will do a replace brick which is currently not supported.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
glusterfs 3.3.0rhs

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Stop the volume
2.Try to replace brick with the cli "volume replace-brick <VOLNAME> <BRICK> <NEW-BRICK> start"
Actual results:
[root@unused ~]# gluster 
gluster> volume replace-brick vol0 start
volume: vol0 is not started

Expected results:

this fails because replace-brick tries to do the data-migration... try replace 'commit force' for the expected behavior of yours...
