5.11. Starting Volumes

Volumes must be started before they can be mounted.
To start a volume, run # gluster volume start VOLNAME


Every volume that is created is exported by default through the SMB protocol. If you want to disable it, please refer Section 6.3.5, “Disabling SMB Shares” before starting the volume.
For example, to start test-volume:
# gluster volume start test-volume
Starting test-volume has been successful
