Installing Gluster on CentOS 6.3

Download the packages,
wget -l 1 -nd -nc -r -A.rpm http://download.gluster.com/pub/gluster/glusterfs/LATEST/CentOS
 Install the packages, including RDMA packages for InfiniBand,
yum install glusterfs-3.3.0-1.el6.x86_64.rpm glusterfs-fuse-3.3.0-1.el6.x86_64.rpm glusterfs-geo-replication-3.3.0-1.el6.x86_64.rpm glusterfs-rdma-3.3.0-1.el6.x86_64.rpm glusterfs-server-3.3.0-1.el6.x86_64.rpm

To create a volume that works on both RDMA and TCP, below command should be used:
gluster volume create VOLNAME  transport tcp,rdma BRICKS
Later, to mount it on RDMA transport, use mount command like below:
mount -t glusterfs IP:/VOLNAME.rdma /mount/point
To mount the tcp volume it will be just,
mount -t glusterfs IP:/VOLNAME /mount/point
gluster> volume create test-volume transport tcp,rdma
