While mounting the Gluster Volume into Ubuntu 14.04 client, recently met with warning that is “WARNING: getfattr not found, certain checks will be skipped..” . We are writing this quick solution for this warning.
As the WARNING itself speaks about getfattr not found. So we will work on to get this command on our system.
getfattr is command to get extended attributes of filesystem objects. After installing the attr package we can get this command.
Note: attr is a command used for extended attributes on XFS filesystem objects.
Install attr package.
sudo apt-get install attr
Now try again mounting the gluster volume. I hope the WARNING is gone now.

Thanks for this – just what I was looking for on my CentOS boxes. Except I found it with a
# yum whatprovides getfattr
And resolved with a
# yum install attr

Happy to see your useful feedback, which give confidence to other users.
I have already written one post, yum with whatprovides option https://sharadchhetri.com/2014/09/07/yum-how-to-find-rpm-package-which-has-certain-command-or-file/
