Glusterfs is not working as client

Posted September 2, 2014 10.4k views


I’m currently following this tutorial:

Even thow I use debian wheezy insted of ubuntu (of course, I didn’t use the same repository as the tutorial).

I managed to configure the server, but when I’m trying to configure the client, it isn’t working.
When I exec this command: mount -t glusterfs <Ip server>:Test01 /mnt/Test01/
I get this error: Mount failed. Please check the log file for more details.

And in the logs files, I get

[2014-09-02 12:23:59.365747] I [glusterfsd.c:1959:main] 0-/usr/sbin/glusterfs: Started running /usr/sbin/glusterfs version 3.5.2 (/usr/sbin/glusterfs --volfile-server=<My server Ip, I changed the log> --volfile-id=Test01 /mnt/Test01/)
[2014-09-02 12:23:59.371218] E [mount.c:267:gf_fuse_mount] 0-glusterfs-fuse: cannot open /dev/fuse (No such device)
[2014-09-02 12:23:59.371332] E [xlator.c:403:xlator_init] 0-fuse: Initialization of volume 'fuse' failed, review your volfile again

A lots of website saying their had difficulty with fuse because of the boot order, but since I doing this command manually, it should not be affected by this.

One thing I saw is that on debian wheezy there is no file with the name fuse in /etc/init.d, even thow fuse is installed on the server.

Thank you

Were you able to address this? Perhaps try creating the mount with:

mknod -m 666 /dev/fuse c 10 229
