Description M S Vishwanath Bhat 2012-03-10 02:11:33 EST
Description of problem:
On the mountpoint, creation of .glusterfs is not permitted, but creation of any directory .glusterfs_hidden or .glusterfs_blah_blah is permitted. So the creation succeeds but won't be listed in ls -a. 

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create and start any volume.
2. Mount the volume and create a dir called .glusterfs_hidden
3. Run ls -a on mountpoint.
Actual results:
.glusterfs_hidden won't be listed.

Expected results:
.glusterfs_hidden directory should be listed in ls -a.

CHANGE: http://review.gluster.com/2910 (posix_fill_readdir: Using strcmp to compare GF_HIDDEN_PATH with entry->d_name instead of strncmp.) merged in master by Vijay Bellur (vijay@gluster.com)
Comment 2 M S Vishwanath Bhat 2012-03-13 05:31:28 EDT
Now the .glusterfs_hidden or .glusterfs_abc can be created and ls -a lists teh entries. Moving to closed upstream.
