I'm running Linux 2.4.6 + linux-2.4.6-xfs-07052001.patch on a RedHat 7.1
based system. When I tried to mount an xfs filesystem (which sits
on top of lvm) exported from this box with NFS, I get a "Permission
denied" on the client side and "rpc.mountd: getfh failed: Operation not
permitted" on the server side.
Mounting a reiserfs filesystem from the same box works fine.
Now, I first had the problem with Linux 2.4.5 +
linux-2.4.5-xfs-06112001.patch, so I figured that an upgrade to later
versions would probably solve the problems. No such luck.
I found some discussion on the subject on the linux-xfs mailing list
archives, but no one had posted any reasons or location of patches.
If you need debugging or more info on the systems, I'll help.
