Description Peter Linder 2012-12-09 06:30:15 EST
Description of problem:

32-bit client (Debian 5.0) mounts gluster export via nfs. As a normal user, creating a new file using touch creates the file with 0:0 ownership. It is possible to chown the file to the correct user after that. This gives me the idea that all operations are made with UID 0.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
3.3.0, using glusters built in nfs server

How reproducible:

Always, on a 32 bit client. 64 bit client works as expected

Steps to Reproduce:
1. mount on 32 bit client using nfs.
2. create a file using an ordinary user
3. the file has root:root ownership
Actual results:
Wrong ownership :)

Expected results:
Correct ownership (as is when mounted using 64 bit client)

I've tried this in one of my VMs, but can not reproduce this. Could you provide
some more details steps to show what I have missed?


Steps taken on the 32-bit client:

[root@vm-200 ~]# uname -m
[root@vm-200 ~]# rpm -q nfs-utils
[root@vm-200 ~]# mount -t nfs -o vers=3 vm-86:/distrep2x2 /mnt
[root@vm-200 ~]# mkdir /mnt/bug-885424
[root@vm-200 ~]# chown guest:guest /mnt/bug-885424
[root@vm-200 ~]# touch /mnt/bug-885424/created-as-root
[root@vm-200 ~]# su - guest
[guest@vm-200 ~]$ touch /mnt/bug-885424/created-as-guest
[guest@vm-200 ~]$ ls -l /mnt/bug-885424/
total 0
-rw-rw-r--. 1 guest guest 0 Jan  3 10:26 created-as-guest
-rw-r--r--. 1 root  root  0 Jan  3 10:26 created-as-root

64-bit server:

[root@vm-86 ~]# gluster --version
