I guess the gluster documentation at https://docs.gluster.org/
If you have a single brick volume of type Distributed, then you can add 2 more bricks and
convert the volume to 'replica 3' or 'replica 3 arbiter 1'
gluster volume add-brick help
gluster volume add-brick <VOLUME-even-Hosted-Engines> replica 3 [arbiter 1]
If you remove the square brackets so the type is 'replica 3 arbiter 1' the second
brick will be treated as an arbiter.
WARNING: You need to create your bricks with inode size of at least 512 'mkfs.xfs -i
size=512 /dev/vg/lv'. If you wish to use the snapshot functionality (I use it to
snapshot my Engine's volume before patching), all bricks in the volume must use thin
LV (which I think is not the default by the ansible plays).
Ovirt was quite sensitive with the block device's physical sector size (lsblk -t shows
it as PHY-SEC). If yours is bigger than 512 , you might (I'm not sure about new
version of oVirt) need to use VDO with 'emulate512' flag.
Note: For an arbiter brick with XFS file system , it's worth considering to use an SSD
and setting a higher percentage of inodes (option 'maxpct=' of mkfs.xfs).

where can I find some documents for the conversion to replica? works this also for the

expand your single gluster node cluster to 3 nodes.Only you can add compute nodes.If you
want to add compute nodes then you do not need any glusterfs packages to be installed.
Only ovirt packages are enough to add host as a compute node.On Tue, Oct 27, 2020 at 10:28
