- ONTAP 9
- The file ownership of the files mounted through NFSv4 from a Linux client is shown as
- Attempts to change ownership of the file are unsuccessful.
- When you see
nobodyfor the user and/or group in file listings, that generally means something in NFSv4.x is misconfigured.
- For example, if
user1@NTAP.LOCAL(uid 1234, gid 1234) is accessing an export, then ONTAP must be able to find
user1@NTAP.LOCAL(uid 1234, gid 1234). If the user in ONTAP is
USER1@NTAP.LOCAL, then it won’t match.
- The reason for this is because NFSv4 clients send symbolic
user/groupnames rather than numeric
userid/groupidas it was in NFSv3 and the cluster needs a way to map this symbolic names to numeric IDs.
- If the information in
/etc/groupinformation between the cluster and the Linux host does not match, the cluster will use
