Triage-update: Need to work on fix.
Upstream patch http://review.gluster.org/#/c/15195/ posted for review.
Upstream mainline : http://review.gluster.org/15195
Upstream 3.8 : http://review.gluster.org/15465
downstream patch : https://code.engineering.redhat.com/gerrit/84877
Moving back to post since one of the patch that is needed is not merged in 3.8.
Both upstream patches are merged:
mainline : http://review.gluster.org/15195
3.8 : http://review.gluster.org/15465
Verified this BZ against glusterfs version:3.8.4-2.el7rhgs.x86_64.
Here are the steps that were performed,
1) Created a distributed replica volume and started it.
2) FUSE mounted the volume on a client as a non root user.
3) Changed the permission on the mount point.
sudo chmod a+rwx,+t /mnt/bug/
4) Created a file on the mount point.
5) Added few bricks to the volume. The newly added bricks has got the same permissions as in step-3.
6) From client, created files and folders. No permission denied errors are seen and files & directories are created successfully without errors.
Hence, moving the BZ to Verified.
