Cannot change file permissions from windows client
Last modified: 2013-09-23 18:29:50 EDT
Description of problem:
On the windows client, SMB mounted with gluster volume, the file permissions cannot be changed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a Samba-VFS share for the gluster volume in the /etc/samba/smb.conf file.
2. Map the share on the windows client. Create some files.
3. Right click on the file -> Properties -> click on Security and try to edit the permissions of the file. The permission does not change and there is no error message.
The file permissions should be changed.
Changing the permissions on the folder from windows client is still not working.
Tested it on samba-glusterfs-3.6.9-156.1
Also impacting our ability to change ACL values from a Windows client:
BZ 989435 allows the permissions to be changed, but does not show the changed permissions because the old values are still in the stat cache. 989435 is in the VERIFIED state, so the fix should be available in the latest build.
verified with samba-glusterfs-3.6.9-159.1.el6rhs.x86_64
The ACL permissions are working fine.Able to change the permissions.
