+Setting up Trusted Storage Pools
+================================
+
+Before you can configure a GlusterFS volume, you must create a trusted
+storage pool consisting of the storage servers that provides bricks to a
+volume.
+
+A storage pool is a trusted network of storage servers. When you start
+the first server, the storage pool consists of that server alone. To add
+additional storage servers to the storage pool, you can use the probe
+command from a storage server that is already trusted.
+
+> **Note**
+>
+> Do not self-probe the first server/localhost.
+
+The GlusterFS service must be running on all storage servers that you
+want to add to the storage pool. See ? for more information.
+
+Adding Servers to Trusted Storage Pool
+======================================
+
+To create a trusted storage pool, add servers to the trusted storage
+pool
+
+1. The hostnames used to create the storage pool must be resolvable by
+ DNS.
+
+ To add a server to the storage pool:
+
+ `# gluster peer probe `
+
+ For example, to create a trusted storage pool of four servers, add
+ three servers to the storage pool from server1:
+
+ # gluster peer probe server2
+ Probe successful
+
+ # gluster peer probe server3
+ Probe successful
+
+ # gluster peer probe server4
+ Probe successful
+
+2. Verify the peer status from the first server using the following
+ commands:
+
+ # gluster peer status
+ Number of Peers: 3
+
+ Hostname: server2
+ Uuid: 5e987bda-16dd-43c2-835b-08b7d55e94e5
+ State: Peer in Cluster (Connected)
+
+ Hostname: server3
+ Uuid: 1e0ca3aa-9ef7-4f66-8f15-cbc348f29ff7
+ State: Peer in Cluster (Connected)
+
+ Hostname: server4
+ Uuid: 3e0caba-9df7-4f66-8e5d-cbc348f29ff7
+ State: Peer in Cluster (Connected)
+
+Removing Servers from the Trusted Storage Pool
+==============================================
+
+To remove a server from the storage pool:
+
+`# gluster peer detach`
+
+For example, to remove server4 from the trusted storage pool:
+
+ # gluster peer detach server4
+ Detach successful
