GlusterFS setup on 3 node cluster


Mar 9, 2022
I've found some instructions from 2013 and older, but they're coming up short for some reason.

I've looked in the docs, and all I find is a very generic "here it is" doc, but nothing that lays out how to set it up properly.
so, with that in mind does anyone have a link to some current doc or help on setting up GlusterFS on Proxmox that's current to v8?
I did just find this thread: How to from 2017
(if still valid I'll be good, just seemed a bit dated).
Also, all the directions I've found just show 2 servers or nodes, isn't it possible to have 3 or more in the GlusterFS setup now? (I have no idea, just thought it would be by now).
We're trying to test and prove out some functionality that may help us go live with this.
Yea, just as I started down this road, I noticed that. gotta love it.

Is there another file system that can be used on shared Fiber Storage?

Seems like they all have to go through the network.
I don't speak German well enough, but maybe google can translate it for me. hehe.
I'll look into the OCFS2 thing. Thanks for the tips.
