Which version of glusterfs do you have running now? With glusterfs>= 3.9,
there's a reset-brick command that can help you do this.

It's possible to move to the new interface for gluster.

The procedure would be:

1. Create a network with "gluster" network role.
2. On each host, use "Setup networks" to associate the gluster network on
the desired interface. (This would ensure thet the engine will peer probe
this interface's IP address as well, so that it can be used to identify the
host in brick defintion)
3. For each of the volume's bricks - change the definition of the brick, so
that the new ip address is used. Ensure that there's no pending heal (i.e
gluster volume heal info - should list 0 entires) before you start this(see
https://gluster.readthedocs.io/en/latest/release-notes/3.9.0/ - Introducing
reset-brick command)

gluster volume reset-brick VOLNAME <original-hostname/ip>:BRICKPATH start
gluster volume reset-brick VOLNAME <original-hostname/ip>:BRICKPATH
<new-gluster-interface-ip>:BRICKPATH commit force
