I would like to use GlusterFS across three servers of a HA web and run one of the replicated volumes as the /var mount point? I don't know if it is possible to create a gluster volume and mount it at /var I have tried a lot of different ways, it seems pretty straight forward but I cannot get Glusterfs to run without the files and settings in the /var dir. I cant mount the new volume to a directory that has files already in it. I cant run glusterfs without them? I have tried to edit as many gluster files as I can find to try and get gluster to run from an alternate directory where I have copied all the /var files It wont seem to run without access to the files in the /var .
