Ticket #699 (optionally rebalance during repair or upload) is to  
implement this.  In the meantime there are a few ways you can do it  

  * cd into the storage server's storage directory and remove all but  
three of the shares and then repair.  Those three will stay on that  
server and the others will go to other servers.
  * download the file, turn off that server, upload the file (which  
will put its shares on other servers), turn on that server.  Now  
you'll have the full set of shares on that one server in addition to  
a full set of shares spread out across the other servers.
