Invalid File Credentials When Creating on NFS Volumes
Ok first things first
Server - Fedora Core 5 kernel 2.6.17-1.2174_FC5
NIS - ypserv-2.19-0
NFS - ?
Client - Fedora Core 5 kernel 2.6.17-1.2174_FC5
NFS serves my filesystem, NIS serves user info(except root). the problem is that when I have mounted the nfs shared ext2 filesystem on my client computer and I create a file as root@client, the file owner and group end up being 4294967294 . The problem this causes is that it makes it unchangeable to root@clientcomputer. I cannot change permissions, owner, or group. I have to ssh to my server and change permissions there in order to access the file. I also understand that root should have access to every nook and cranny of the filesystem. As root@server I get access to everything on that computer. The same is not true for my client computer. I get an access denied message when trying to browse home directories of the users. I have been using fedora linux for many years and have never had these problems any help is greatly appreciated.
