If I use IPs to create Gluster volume, it works well, but when I use hostnames, it says:

Host glustertest1 not a friend

glustertest1 is Route 53 name which resolves to EC2 Instance private address. I use glusterfs 3.3.0

Question: What could be the reason of this problem?

So if you ping glustertest1 on your EC2 instance does it resolve to itself? – boburob Oct 22 '12 at 7:59
Yes, it is pingable and I can see Instance internal address. – Roman Newaza Oct 22 '12 at 9:15

I have solved the issue - before I was using SysV build, but switching to upstarted one fixed that. Use upstrated build for Ubuntu.
