Re: normal user access vs root user access

I just noticed even as root user i am not able to do below

 

 

ls -l /xx/home/userxxx

 

but i can see below works

 

ls -ld /xx/home/userxxx

 

Here are permission which looks ok

 

drwx------ 16 xxx  xxx  4096 Feb 26 16:43 /xxx/home/userxxc

Have a look at TR-4067.

 

https://www.netapp.com/us/media/tr-4067.pdf

 

That packet trace is kind of useless here, as all we see are the headers, which tell us "access denied" but have no corresponding info from packet details.

 

But generally speaking, if your permissions are 700 and the user is the owner of the volume and cannot access it, that means ONTAP doesn't know who the user attempting access is. I'd suggest having a look at the TR and opening a support case.

Re: normal user access vs root user access

Do you have any other working NFS mounts? 

"userxxx" has to be a local user to the cluster or a valid LDAP user if LDAP is configured.

 

You can run the below command to validate "userxxx".

nas-cm96::*> getxxbyyy getpwbyname -node nodex -vserver vserverx -username userxxx

You don't need local users for NFSv3. Those come in as numeric IDs and will be able to access based on permissions.

Sorry for late reply

 

Here is investigation so far , Summary is its seems client side issue ... at the same time at times both client & server at times can do config changes to accomodate issues .. so will still  keep open

 

I did rise a netapp case BTW

 

1 did 2 identaical client .. centos 7 + SSSD & other one Centos + SSSD + CIS hardening

 

 

CIS node it fails to mount

 

CIS does over 200 changes .. i tried to revert back few no luck...

 

working node home dir permission

 

-sh-4.2$ pwd
/mnt/xxx/home/xxx
-sh-4.2$ ls -ld .
drwx------ 17 xxx xxxx 4096 Mar 2 15:21 .
-sh-4.2$

 

 

Extensive client side log does not give any info ...

 

netapp too share a good KB to check that too does not give much to help identify the root coz ..

https://mysupport.netapp.com/site/article?lang=en&type=howto&page=%2FAdvice_and_Troubleshooting%2FData_Storage_Software%2FONTAP_OS%2FHow_to_Troublesho...

 

 

if i am able to get to bottom of this i will post .. at this time as i had work-around i am not pushing

 

BTW the subject of the post i realized is wrong  now ...  it has nothing to do with Root or other user ... in fact when i tried to cd to user home dir it said permission denied

 

on the same working box the user was able to  work ok as per the above output

Re: normal user access vs root user access

esxi

Netapp gave good KB but no luck

https://mysupport.netapp.com/site/article?lang=en&type=howto&page=%2FAdvice_and_Troubleshooting%2FData_Storage_Software%2FONTAP_OS%2FHow_to_Troublesho...

 

this is client side issue is my finding so far .. i did exact same steps on a box with no CIS hardening works fine
