Description of problem:

[root@localhost ~]# gluster volume info dist-rep
Volume Name: dist-rep
Type: Distributed-Replicate
Volume ID: 3a9fb84b-6f4b-4bd6-aa2b-6fe86fbc44be
Status: Started
Number of Bricks: 2 x 2 = 4
Transport-type: tcp
Options Reconfigured:
features.root-squashing: enable

[root@dhcp159-239 dir]# mount | grep dist-rep on /mnt/nfs-test type nfs (rw,vers=3,addr=
[root@dhcp159-239 nfs-test]# cd dir
[root@dhcp159-239 dir]# ls -l
total 1
-rw-rw-r--. 1 dev1      dev1       0 Dec 13 17:57 1

drwxr-xr-x. 3 nfsnobody nfsnobody 42 Dec 12 19:09 dir1
#-----------------directory in consideration------------
drwxr-xr-x. 3 root      root      46 Dec 12 19:14 dir-n1

[root@dhcp159-239 dir]# ls -l dir-n1/1
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 9 Dec 13 18:04 dir-n1/1

[root@dhcp159-239 dir]# cat >> dir-n1/1
Hello 1\

[root@dhcp159-239 dir]# ls -ld 
drwxrwxrwx. 4 root root 76 Dec 13 17:57 .

whereas similarly I tried over kernel nfs and found that write should fail,
[root@snow ~]# cat /etc/exports
/opt *(rw,sync,no_root_squash)
/home *(rw,root_squash)

[root@konsoul testing]# mount | grep home on /mnt/nfs-test type nfs (rw,vers=3,addr=

[root@konsoul testing]# ls -ld
drwxrwxrwx. 8 root root 4096 Jan 29  2012 .

[root@konsoul testing]# ls -ld dir-n1
drwxr-xr-x. 2 root root 4096 Jan 29  2012 dir-n1

[root@konsoul testing]# ls -l dir-n1
total 0
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 0 Jan 29  2012 1

[root@konsoul testing]# cat >> dir-n1/1
bash: dir-n1/1: Permission denied

some more observation related to the same issue,

created a new directory from fuse mount, effectively from root username,
chmod 770 dirfuse
[root@dhcp159-239 nfs-test]# ls -ld dir-fuse
drwxrwx---. 2 root root 26 Dec 14 00:07 dir-fuse
tried to create file inside this dir and it is a pass,
[root@dhcp159-239 nfs-test]# touch dir-fuse/new1

whereas on kernel-nfs ... it fails similarly,

[root@konsoul nfs-test]# ls -ld dir-new
drwxrwx---. 2 root root 4096 Jan 29  2012 dir-new

[root@konsoul nfs-test]# touch dir-new/new1
touch: cannot touch `dir-new/new1': Permission denied

valid only if the bug 896408 is fixed, so, rather keeping this open, keeping it as duplicate of that bug.
