Adding bricks to the k8s/gluster cluster

I’ve brought a second node into the cluster but it didn’t go perfectly right off the bat so the third brick will be the proof. The reason it failed is that I had some fancy automation set up that already created an unattached volume on the second node, but adding pre-existing volumes is ludicrous, now that I think about it, and I only thought about it once I tried to do it and was told “No.”

Using the first brick

Before I add bricks and expand the cluster, I want to see if I can use what I’ve got so far. I’m not concerned about the Kubernetes side, but as mentioned I have never used Gluster before, and I’m sure there are some kinks to work out.

Building the first brick

The first concrete step in rebuilding my services infrastructure is building a virtual Gluster node, or two. I’m going to start with one to see how easy it is to add nodes. Actually I may as well install k8s as well and I’ll have my first brick.
