I am playing with / testing GlusterFS and I like it so far. I think I can put it to good use.
I setup 5 Virtual Machines on a server (this is just for the playing/testing part) and installed Ubuntu 12.04 Server on 4 out of 5 and Debian 64bit on the 5th.
1 is a client. 3x Ubuntu servers 1x Debian server.
I compiled gluster 3.3 from scratch on Debian as a test, I wanted to make notes and what not and to see how it went. The ubuntu boxes however are setup using apt.
The 3 ubuntu boxes are working fine. I have 3 Bricks in a stripe and it works great. The client can connect just fine and read/write data.
I am now trying to add the Debian peer to the first ubuntu server so that I can expand the stripe.
I can resolve the hostname, the FQDN and I can ping the ip address from all peers. I can telnet to the Debian machine on 24007 just fine. Yet when I try to probe it just sits there for a while and eventually just goes back to prompt and if I do a peer status I see:
Hostname: glusterfs-compiletest.domain.local Uuid: 00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000 State: Establishing Connection (Disconnected)
I have rebooted and restarted all the machines just in case.
No Firewalls at all. This is all on an internal server and I have made sure that there is no firewall (and again, I can telnet to the port)
Any ideas or anything I can try?
I am new to Gluster.
