What I discovered last night is that there is no default ACL set. When a
default acl is set, everything works ok.
What I am trying to understand is the change in behaviour between our original setup and the Mandrake 8.1 setup.
In both setups, there is no default ACL set, yet only the systems running 8.1 exhibit the umask 022 problem when exporting an xfs file system with nfs.
Newly created files do not appear to exhibit the problem - only newly created directories.
Thanks, Shiv Christian, Chip wrote:
This sounds like it could, maybe, possibly, be related to what I encountered some time back. Bottom line is that the permission bits of a newly created file are a logical and of the default acl of the containing directory and the bits passed to creat. Do youhave a default acl set on the directory involved, and does it have the bits masked off that you see as missing?-Chip -----Original Message----- From: Shiv Sikand [mailto:sikand@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx] Sent: Sunday, January 27, 2002 4:14 To: linux-xfs@xxxxxxxxxxx Cc: chmouel@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: Mandrake 8.1 exhibits xfs/nfs umask problem We have observed that the Mandrake 8.1 kernel exhibits a umask problem when xfs volumes are exported with nfs.If a new directory is created via nfs on an xfs volume, the umask from the current process is not inherited.Reading the mail archive, it looks like this problem or something extremely similar was fixed in the XFS tree a long time ago. We do not observe this problem with 2.4.5-xfs-1.0.1 which has been our production kernel prior to the arrival of XFS support in Mandrake. Can someone please take a look at the xfs code in the Mandrake build and confirm the problem. Thanks, Shiv
