NFS keeps seeing files as owner 'nobody'

Hi All,

I have a volume exported from my NetApp (ONTAP 7.3.1) to an AIX server (AIX 5.3). All of a sudden all files gets group permission 'nobody' and I can't change it with chgrp to what I want.

The export from the NetApp:

/vol/myvol   -sec=sys,rw,anon=0,nosuid

I'm using NFSv4 and both server have the same domain set for NFSv4. I'm baffled, because /vol/vol0 gets mounted through NFS as well and shows perfect permissions.

Has anyone a clue to what is going on?

Regards,

Richard.

Re: NFS keeps seeing files as owner 'nobody'

Here is a little update:

The filesystem was mounted using NFSv4, when I mounted the filesystem using NFSv3 everything is oke.

Re: NFS keeps seeing files as owner 'nobody'

NFSv4 uses nfsmap_id domains to identify user and group mappings.On your AIX system, check the nfs settings and ensure that the nfs domains match with that on the filer.

Re: NFS keeps seeing files as owner 'nobody'

On both the NetApp and the AIX server are the domains the same.

NetApp

nfs.v4.id.domain     x.y.z

AIX

chnfsdom

Current local domain: x.y.z
