Gluster 3.6 and RHEL 6.6

Latest response

So I was tinkering around with a couple of server and decided to upgrade my glusterfs cluster to 6.6. It complained about some dependency problems which I sort of ignored, and added exclude commands to my yum repo's. Everything seemed to work fine. Afterwards I noticed that CTDB stopped working which I traced back to /usr/sbin/smbd -

/usr/sbin/smbd output:

PANIC (pid 24558): Could not init smbd's messaging context.

I'm using the Gluster repo's which can be found:

Finally, I decided to remove the gluster version I was running, removed the excusions on yum and installed all of the new cluster 3.6 packages. Now /usr/sbin/smbd worked again...

So... I'm assuming that once Gluster get off their butt and update the repo to 3.6 then all of these problems with disappear!

Hope this helps someone!
