It is recommended to use partitions for GlusterFS volumes which are different from the / partition.
The environment on this example is set as that [sdb1] is mounted on [/glusterfs] directory for GlusterFS Configuration on all Nodes.
[2] Create a Directory for GlusterFS Volume on all Nodes.
node01:~ #
mkdir -p /glusterfs/distributed

[3] Configure Clustering like follows on a node. (it's OK on any node)
# probe the node

node01:~ #
gluster peer probe node02

peer probe: success.
# show status

node01:~ #
gluster peer status

Number of Peers: 1

Hostname: node02
Uuid: fa0c1a0c-9738-4554-8ac8-cd84f1de72af
