+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #859581 +++

Description of problem:
I was seeing errors self-healing "/". Upon checking the .glusterfs/00/00/00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000001 stats, I discovered that some of my bricks had directories instead of symlinks. I replaced the directories with symlinks to ../../.. and set the gfid on those symlinks to 0x00000000000000000000000000000001 and healing was able to return to normal.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Sorry, there were a lot of things happening all at once so I'm not sure which one of them caused this to happen.

I do replica 3 volumes so that may be a variable in this.
