[PVE-User] GlusterFS VM failover

As I think that I reply to my own question after searching in GlusterFS
documentation, I'm wondering if anybody from Proxmox's staff here can
guide me.

In fact, GlusterFS has an option to specify a backup node to the primary
one. In a replicated setup, it permits to be sure that the client points 
to the healthy node.

It's specified in the mount command or /etc/fstab on the client side, like :

/# mount -t glusterfs -o 
//2,log-level=WARNING,log-file=/var/log/gluster.log server1:/testvolume//

/If backupvolfile-server option is added while mounting fuse client, when//
//the first volfile server fails, then the server specified in 
backupvolfile-server option is used as volfile server to mount the client./

Basically my question is : Where can I find the GlusterFS client mount 
entry on Promox ? And do you plan to implement that functionality in the 
GUI and qemu ? (It would be awesome)

For anybody on that topic, you can find more information here :

or in the official Administration Guide
