Another puzzle - a group on my home LAN called "smbusr" should have write access to an NFS share, but fails for unknown reasons: > jamie@JB13:~$ groups > jamie adm dialout fax cdrom floppy tape sudo audio dip video plugdev > fuse lpadmin netdev admin sambashare vmusers smbusr User "jamie" is a member of group "smbusr". > jamie@JB13:~$ ls -dl /opt/test/ > drwxrwxr-x 2 root smbusr 4096 2011-01-06 08:09 /opt/test/ > jamie@JB13:~$ touch /opt/test/testfile Local directory /opt/test has 775 permissions and successfully allows file creation. > jamie@JB13:~$ ls -dl /mnt/jb7/archive/test > drwxrwxr-x 2 root smbusr 4096 2010-12-14 09:53 /mnt/jb7/archive/test > jamie@JB13:~$ touch /mnt/jb7/archive/test/testfile > touch: cannot touch `/mnt/jb7/archive/test/testfile': Permission denied NFS share mounted at /mnt/jb7/archive also has 775 permissions but forbids file creation. Why? It has something to do with running Ubuntu 10.4 because this problem doesn't occur under Fedora (9,10,12 or 13). I can simply reboot to Fedora with the same fstab and there is no problem writing to the share. The entry in fstab reads: 192.168.0.7:/samba/archive /mnt/jb7/archive nfs rsize=8192,wsize=8192,timeo=14,intr Maybe something to do with GID being < 1000? Users and groups began at 500 under Fedora and my other previously used distro's. Ubuntu starts numbering at 1000.
