User unable to access NFS mount after migration from unix to mixed security

Hello,

 

Recently we migrated a folder from Netapp2 to Netapp1 (both in HA) and now normal users cannot access the mounted folder from linux hosts only ROOT user can access the mount.

 

History:

Folder named SAP existed under /vol/Vol_DSL_SAP on NetApp2 and had UNIX security style. Requirement was to migrate folder SAP to /vol/Vol_SAP on NetApp1 and Vol_SAP had mixed security style.

 

we are able to mount the folder SAP as netapp1:/vol/Vol_SAP/SAP correctly and even access it when root but normal users cannot access it

they get permission denied error.

 

[root@server1 ~ ] $ cd /distrib
[root@server1 /distrib ] $

 

user1@server1:/home/user1>cd /distrib
-ksh: cd: /distrib: [Permission denied]
user1@server1:/home/user1>

 

Any suggestions?

Re: User unable to access NFS mount after migration from unix to mixed security

issue is now fixed, UNIX guy found out that after migration the ownership of the folder migrated was changed to one particular user(mistake by other unix guy). After changing ownership back to root it is wroking for everyone.
