Glusterfs: already part of a volume Error

This error normally occurs when traces of metadata and configs are present it the brick you have created. You can execute the following commands to rectify the issue.

Note: /path/to/brick refers to the mount path of Glusterfs volume.

setfattr -x trusted.glusterfs.volume-id </path/to/brick>
setfattr -x trusted.gfid </path/to/brick>
rm -rf </path/to/brick>/.glusterfs
