- When trying to reuse a brick in a new Gluster volume it will fail with a message like this:
# gluster volume add-brick test-vol gluster3:/bricks/app /bricks/app or a prefix of it is already part of a volume
The stale brick can be either:
- removed from a volume with the command
gluster volume remove-brick ...
- from an old, deleted volume (
gluster volume delete ...)
