[Gluster-users] hash with non-existent / down servers

Is it possible to use  a gluster hash when some of the servers are missing ?

Eg if glusterfs.vol has 8 servers but only 6  available.

I dont mind files being missing (due to being on  offline servers).

I do mind  filesystem inoperable  eg transport endpoint not connected 
error .
when some severs taken offline.

I would prefer hash than say using mirrored pairs which is very wastful.
Using this for global scratch storage.
