Sticky bit operations

 We have a SVM with running NFS v4.  We have Solaris 11 and RH Linux clients in the export policy.    Does it matter as far as sticky bit operations as which host (Solaris v. Linux ) access the NetApp first?

 

The first client to access the volume was a Linux RH 7 client.   While performing an rync permissions within the volume on directories and files displayed nobody:nobody.     This lead to setting the SVM domain setting from default to our prod domain.  And then the the nobody issue went away.   However this caused Solaris 11 systems unable to set a sticky bit or change file permissions.   

 

Any thoughts?  Thanks

Awesome.   Is this disruptive to  a host?  Should they unmount the volume first?

 

I will try after the holiday as we don't make changes on Fridays.

 

I appreciate your help.

Hi @TimJMcCuen ,

 

Thank you for the quick follow-up.

 

This operation should be non-disruptive.
