userA creates file 'test' in /mnt/gluster/
userA sets group ownership to groupA on /mnt/gluster/test

(In reply to comment #1)
There are two issues mentioned in the thread. With editors like vim, when backup files are being created in the same directory, the backup creation fails. Please investigate that too as part of this bug.

RHEL 5.5 Native FUSE doesn't work. 

Fedora 14, Ubuntu 8.04 works with Native FUSE.
Comment 4 Gaurav 2011-04-20 01:31:45 EDT
Its failing setattr call for users in the same group other than owner.

Problem is in access_control where we are just checking for Owner Access in case of setattr, so its not allowing others in the same group to do setattr, even after setting proper permissions by owner.

For verfication used the build of 3.2.1qa2

for this test, I simulated the similar setup as mentioned for reproducing it and it worked.

created a group saurabh, added users srj and srj1 to it,

[srj@centos-qa-3 d3]$ grep saurabh /etc/group
saurabh:x:506:srj,srj1 on /mnt/gluster type nfs (rw,nfsvers=3,nolock,addr=

[srj1@centos-qa-3 gluster]$ ls -l
total 88
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root        0 Jun  2 00:24 1
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root    12288 Jun  1 05:37 d1
drwxrwxrwx 2 srj  saurabh 12288 Jun  2 23:44 d3

[srj@centos-qa-3 gluster]$ cd d3
[srj@centos-qa-3 d3]$ ls
f.1  f.2  
[srj@centos-qa-3 d3]$ vim f.2
[srj@centos-qa-3 d3]$

now tried to edit the file f.2 with user srj1,

[srj@centos-qa-3 gluster]$ ls -li d3
total 92
13572394809226695843 -rw-rw-r-- 1 srj     srj   50 Jun  2 23:35 f.1
5947979786177860277 -rw-rw-r-- 1 srj     srj    0 Jun  2 06:16 f.2
[srj1@centos-qa-3 gluster]$ cd d3
[srj1@centos-qa-3 d3]$ sudo chmod 777 f.2
[srj1@centos-qa-3 d3]$ vim f.2
[srj1@centos-qa-3 d3]$ pwd
