I am experiencing an issue with NFS and/or Samba on Red Hat 6.3.
I have an NFS share mounted from our DEV machine to the QA machine called transfers. A user created a folder on the DEV machine via a Samba share and the permissions / ownership were set correctly on that machine.
On the QA machine the contents of the transfer folder have incorrect ownership - the user is correct but the group is incorrectly showing as nobody instead of domain users. See below:
drwxrwxr-x. 8 proivck nobody 4.0K Nov 28 11:20 .
drwxr-xr-x. 5 proiv domain users 4.0K Oct 29 11:34 ..
-rw-rw-r--. 1 proivck nobody 221K Sep 13 10:01 aug2012.vpx
-rw-rw-r--. 1 simon.tann nobody 1.3M Oct 30 09:32 ccn_for_v7.vpx
-rw-rw-r--. 1 proivck nobody 693K Oct 12 13:28 ccn_v7.vpx
drwxrwxr-x. 3 proivck nobody 4.0K Sep 3 10:28 dev
drwxrwxr-x. 2 simon.tann nobody 4.0K Nov 28 09:18 lastimp
-rw-rw-r--. 1 proivck nobody 662K Sep 3 10:29 npost1_from_qa2.vpx
drwxrwxr-x. 3 proivck nobody 4.0K Sep 3 10:28 qa
drwxrwxr-x. 3 proivck nobody 4.0K Nov 27 13:45 release
-rw-rw-r--. 1 proivck nobody 221K Sep 13 10:32 sep2012.vpx
drwxrwxr-x. 2 proivck nobody 4.0K Sep 12 15:32 shared_data
-rw-rw-r--. 1 proivck nobody 725K Sep 3 10:28 taps8437.vpx
-rw-rw-r--. 1 proivck nobody 1008K Sep 3 10:29 taps8459.vpx
drwxrwxr-x. 2 proivck nobody 4.0K Sep 3 10:29 tmp
where proivck is a local user and simon.tann is my network user.
If I shown a file in the transfer folder to have the domain users group it does not return an error but remains as nobody.
I am able to create files in the transfer folder from windows explorer but cannot delete them afterwards and they have the nobody group.
Files I create in my home directoy via windows explorer are created with the correct group, as are files in other samba shares.
Does anyone know what to change and where to get the client machine to recognise the group correctly?
