I have created a group - lets call it mygroup.
I have created a user - let's call him myuser, he is a member of mygroup.
He has a home directory of /home/myuser.
I have a directory that myuser is responsible for, lets call it mydirectory (original, or what!). This directory is located in /dir1/dir2/dir3/mydirectory.
dir1, dir2 and dir3 are owned by user root and group root. mydirectory is owned by user myuser and group mygroup (although it was formerly owned by root). User, group and others have full read, write, execute access into mydirectory.
If myuser tries to copy anything into mydirectory from his home directory, he gets a 'No space left on device' error (although there is tons of space on the server). I can only presume it is a rights issue, but I can't see why or how since he owns mydirectory.
Does anybody know what might cause this behaviour?
P.S. I am connecting remotely to a RedHat 7.1 server via Putty if this helps.
