File system mounted rw but behaves as if ro
/dev/hdb5 /home/public2 ext3 defaults 1 2
/dev/hdb5 on /home/public2 type ext3 (rw)
When I try to touch a file in /home/public2, I get the following error:
touch: setting times of `/home/public2': Read-only file system
If I unmount the filesystem and remount it rw, it works fine for 5 or 10 minutes. Then it reverts to read-only. Directory permissions are set correctly and the read-only behavior is enforced for all users, including root.
I'm assuming there's some security setting that's causing the filesystem to be remounted ro, but haven't a clue as to where I should start looking.
