Permission denied on NTFS volume shared by NFS

Hi All,

Well the question is easy, but the answer is hard :-)

I have in my infrastcture 10 Linux machine running RHEL 5.0.

The 10 Linux machines are powers boxes (each with 24 cores and 96GB of RAM)

All my users are loging to these machine using NX client.

The Linux machine are configure to work with the Microsoft Active Driecroty servivces.

So all users infromation coming from the LDAP (UID, GID, gecons etc....)

Authentication is done by kerberos.

I also configure the LDAP options on the NetApp and it seems to work fine (getXXbyYY works!)

Anyway, this setup was working great for the last 3 years. No issues at all!

The problem is with RHEL 6.0!

This version was installed, and used the same setup as in version 5.0.

Authentication is done by kerberos, and I used the nslcd option to get info from the ldap server.

So far everything is good.

I also manage to mount the NFS shares on the machine.

But the problem I now facing is that on NFS share, which is a NTFS qtree based I get permssion denied when trying to copy a file.

Here is a copy paste:

Any ideas?

Permission denied on NTFS volume shared by NFS

FYI, I still don't know what is the different, but moving to NFSv4 on RHEL 6.0 solved the problem.

I do however think this is a bug or some configuration error, and will be happy if someone can tell what is the cause of it.

As I see it there no reason why this shouldn't working the same as in version 5.0 of RedHat.

Thanks

Permission denied on NTFS volume shared by NFS

Start with stracing cp command to find out what system call exactly returns EPERM. I suspect it is attempt to (explicitly) change file mask/permissions, because file is obviously created.

Re: Permission denied on NTFS volume shared by NFS

I've experienced exactly the same problem: its happen only with RHEL6, NFS v3 and qtree sec-style NTFS. It first creates an empty file while saying permission denied and fills the content of the file on the second copy. Strace showed the following while trying to copy ADR.flt for the first time:

Re: Permission denied on NTFS volume shared by NFS

We had the similar issue with some of our Linux clients. One solution was to set this hidden option on the affected filers:

filer>options cifs.ntfs_ignore_unix_security_ops on
