Major issues

  1. Expanding a gluster volume that is sharded may cause file corruption

    • Sharded volumes are typically used for VM images, if such volumes are expanded or possibly contracted (i.e add/remove bricks and rebalance) there are reports of VM images getting corrupted.
    • The last known cause for corruption (Bug #1515434) is still under review.
    • Status of this bug can be tracked here, #1515434
