Here are the steps for replacing a failed node:

1- In one of the other servers run "grep thaila
/var/lib/glusterd/peers/* | cut -d: -f1 | cut -d/ -f6" and note the
UUID
2- stop glusterd on failed server and add "UUID=uuid_from_previous
step" to /var/lib/glusterd/glusterd.info and start glusterd
3- run "gluster peer probe calliope"
4- restart glusterd
5- now gluster peer status should show all the peers. if not probe
them manually as above.
6-for all the bricks run the command "setfattr -n
trusted.glusterfs.volume-id -v 0x$(grep volume-id
/var/lib/glusterd/vols/vol_name/info | cut -d= -f2 | sed 's/-//g')
brick_name"
7 restart glusterd and everythimg should be fine.

I think I read the steps from this link:
https://support.rackspace.com/how-to/recover-from-a-failed-server-in-a-glusterfs-array/
Look to the "keep the ip address" part.
