Weird directory user group (4294967295) - no access even with root
 
Hey,

I have the following problem with one of the directories in a mounted ext3 (/dev/sdb1 on /oracle type ext3 (rw)) filesystem on

Linux 2.6.18-194.11.1.0.1.el5 #1 SMP Tue Aug 10 16:56:30 EDT 2010 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

I cannot acccess it by any means even as a root,
- listing attributes fails (lsattr: Inappropriate ioctl for device While reading flags on /oracle/fmwhome/user_projects)
- changing ownership doesn't work (chown: changing ownership of `/oracle/fmwhome/user_projects': Operation not permitted)

The entry for the directory is weird, with uid and guid set to -1 and weird mdate

?rwsrwsrwt 65535 4294967295 4294967295 4294967295 Dec 31 1969 user_projects

Anybody has any clue?

Thanks.

Best.

Hello and Welcome to LinuxQuestions,

Can you post the output of
Code:

mount
I suspect that what you're trying to access is a NFS share.

Kind regards,

Eric

Hello Eric,

thanks. This is not a nfs share, below is what 'mount' outputs:

/dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol00 on / type ext3 (rw)
proc on /proc type proc (rw)
sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw)
devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,gid=5,mode=620)
/dev/sda1 on /boot type ext3 (rw)
tmpfs on /dev/shm type tmpfs (rw)
/dev/sdb1 on /oracle type ext3 (rw)
none on /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc type binfmt_misc (rw)
sunrpc on /var/lib/nfs/rpc_pipefs type rpc_pipefs (rw)

I was trying to umount and mount /oracle again but it doesn't help either.

best,
Piotr

Hi,

OK, did you run fsck on the filesystem yet? Worth a try to see what that turns up.

Kind regards,

Eric

Yes, I've run it at the very beginning and it said it was clean.

No other idea.

The question mark that begins the listing of the directory is not a symbol for a recognized Linux file type. You may need to gain access via Oracle.
