[Gluster-users] trouble rebalancing volume

Hi all -

I'm having issues rebalancing my layout/data across a two-brick volume. 
I'm on Gluster 3.2.5.

I'm currently using a single Ubuntu 10.04 machine. Both bricks reside on 
this machine. Adding the brick went fine. Here's the volume's info:

$ sudo gluster volume info
Volume Name: branch
Type: Distribute
Status: Started
Number of Bricks: 2
Transport-type: tcp
Bricks:
Brick1: system01:/gluster/brick0001
Brick2: system01:/gluster/brick0002

brick0001 has a bunch of files on it, brick0002 is empty. I'd like to 
rebalance the directory layout and data onto the new brick. But strange 
things happen when I try to do this.

$ sudo gluster volume rebalance branch fix-layout status
rebalance stopped
$ sudo gluster volume rebalance branch fix-layout start
Rebalance on branch is already started
$ sudo gluster volume rebalance branch fix-layout status
rebalance stopped

Weird! I can't seem to get this to work.

Am I doing some wrong, or is this some other issue?

Thanks!

- brian
