Is it possible to pre-seed a glusterfs geo-repl slave?

Background story:
I am presently using rsync to mirror 3 servers.
The source server (master) resides in the UK. The target servers reside
in Canada and USA.
The targets servers presently have 1.5TB of mirrored data.
I want to switch from rsync mirroring to glusterfs geo-replication.
However, I wish to use the existing data as the starting point instead of
starting geo-replication from scratch. It will take a very long time to
re-sync 1.5TB of data over our WAN connection.

Does glusterfs allow for this?

Hi,

from what i have seen you can have the target volume mounted RW and write
other files to it without breaking replication. I don't know in case the
files are the same what would happen since i haven't tested it but i guess
as per rsync it would update the files from source.
