Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 227188
NFSv4 SETATTR mode calls fails against netapp with -EINVAL
Last modified: 2007-11-16 20:14:55 EST
When a SETATTR call that changes mode bits is made against a netapp server, it
returns a -EINVAL. The issue seems to be that we're not masking off the
high-order mode bits when sending the call to the server.
Created attachment 147262 [details]
patch to mask off high order mode bits in setattr calls
This patch should fix it, but needs testing against v2/v3 (only the v4 part has
been tested so far).
Note that this only seems to happen with very new versions of OnTap
Moving back to assigned to work on a more comprehensive upstream patch.
