    good article and thanks for sharing!

    There are a few typos that I would like to highlight (–permanent) (double –)

    sudo tee gfs.fw <<-'EOF'
    sudo systemctl enable firewalld
    sudo systemctl start firewalld
    sudo firewall-cmd –permanent –zone=public –add-port=24007-24008/tcp
    sudo firewall-cmd –permanent –zone=public –add-port=24009/tcp
    sudo firewall-cmd –permanent –zone=public –add-service=nfs –add-service=samba –add-service=samba-client
    sudo firewall-cmd –permanent –zone=public –add-port=111/tcp –add-port=139/tcp –add-port=445/tcp –add-port=965/tcp –add-port=2049/tcp –add-port=38465-38469/tcp –add-port=631/tcp –add-port=111/udp –add-port=963/udp –add-port=49152-49251/tcp
    sudo systemctl reload firewalld
    sudo systemctl status firewalld
    EOF

    and pls add a note for nfs …

    sudo systemctl stop nfs-lock.service
    sudo systemctl stop nfs.target
    sudo systemctl disable nfs.target
    sudo systemctl start rpcbind.service

    — to fix user not allowed issues by doing the above and also check /etc/exports and /etc/allow

    Very well written. good reference material.
    I have 2 suggestions :
    1. glusterfs-server package provides firewalld service file which opens up the required ports. You can use this service file, instead of opening ports one by one.
    # firewall-cmd –zone=public –add-service=glusterfs
    # firewall-cmd –zone=public –add-service=glusterfs –permanent

    2. Striped volumes are getting deprecated soon with glusterfs-3.9
