Using GlusterFS from a Linux Workstation or Server

This is a very short HowTo to access a GlusterFS Volume from a workstation or Server.

This document continues from “http://www.agix.com.au/easily-install-configure-glusterfs-on-redhat-centos/“. It will make more sense if you read that first.

mkdir /mnt/gluster
mount -t glusterfs 10.0.0.11:/gvol0 /mnt/gluster

Where “10.0.0.11” is the IP address of any Gluster server. And “gvol0” is the Volume name on the Gluster server.

At this point you should be able to see the content with the Gluster resource.

TIP: The Gluster client gets enough information from the initial mount to know what to do if/when the first server it connects to fails. Smart, hu.
