Description Kamil Páral 2010-05-24 11:11:50 EDT
Description of problem:
Use case 1:
# cat /etc/exports

# mount.nfs /mnt -v
mount.nfs: timeout set for Mon May 24 16:46:36 2010
mount.nfs: trying text-based options 'vers=4,addr=,clientaddr='
mount.nfs: mount(2): Permission denied
mount.nfs: access denied by server while mounting

# mount.nfs /mnt -v
mount.nfs: timeout set for Mon May 24 17:09:51 2010
mount.nfs: trying text-based options 'vers=4,addr=,clientaddr=' on /mnt type nfs
# ll -d /mnt/
drwx------. 94 kparal kparal 4096 May 24 12:43 /mnt/
# ll /mnt
ls: cannot open directory /mnt: Permission denied
# (ignores no_root_squash option)

Use case 2:
# cat /etc/exports

everything works perfect

Simply, for non-root owned directories, only the top-level directory can be exported. If you export a subdirectory, presented problems occur.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Always for my machines. Also reproduced by steved @ #fedora-devel.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Share a subdirectory of non-root owned directory.
2. Try to mount it from a client.
3. Access denied by server.
Comment 1 Steve Dickson 2010-06-02 12:11:31 EDT
Your home directory '/home/kparal/' has a permission 
mode of 0700 (owner only), correct?
Comment 2 Steve Dickson 2010-06-02 16:18:39 EDT
It appears the no_root_squash export option is broken on
v4 mounts..

I have completely the same problem on Fedora 16. It has appeared again.

Comment 5 Kamil Páral 2012-04-16 11:11:25 EDT
The problem also appears with:


Steve, could you please have a look at that?

The proposed upstream patch

Author: Steve Dickson <steved@redhat.com>
Date:   Tue May 29 08:57:04 2012 -0400

    Honor the no_root_squash flag on pseudo roots.
    If root squashing is turned off on a export that
    has multiple directories, the parent directories
    of the pseudo exports that's built, also needs to
    have root squashing turned off.

Ok... Lets open up another bz about anonuid/anongid not working so we can move the no_root_squash fix along... OK?
