Issue

1. Folder experiencing this problem was migrated from 7-mode to C-mode, other folders has no such issue.

2. In 7-mode:
The .gz files created by user A. User B in the same group can decompressed using gunzip

3. In C-mode:
The .gz file created by user A. User B in the same group run gunzip to decompress would fail with prompt: Operation not permitted

[root@hostA ~]# su - userB
[userB@hostA ~]$ cd  /x/problematic_dir/
[userB@hostA problematic_dir]$ ll
total 7964
-rwxrwxr-x 1 userA GroupAB 86559 May 30 07:29 file1.bak7.gz
[userB@hostA incoming]$ gunzip file1.bak7.gz
gzip: file1.bak7: Operation not permitted

4.  In the same folder, other read and write operations on the NFS mount would success. Only gunzip would fail.
