I am running Fedora Core 3, with Selinux active but not completely configured, as an NFS server. In the past, I have successfully accessed several filesystems for read/write from my client. Today, I started getting "access denied" from one of the file systems, while writes continued to work on the other. The only configuration changes that I have made recently are related to installing a new monitor, and I have not touched the exports file.
I have several filesystems exported with
I tried executing exportfs -ra on the server, restarting netfs on the client, and mounting the NFS filesystems. I got:
asusPC:/a/b/sata_bulk on /a/as-sata_bulk type nfs (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev,addr=192.168.1.100)
asusPC:/a/b/hdaBulk-hda3 on /a/as-hdaBulk-hda3 type nfs (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev,addr=192.168.1.100)
[root@localhost root]# cd /a/as-hdaBulk-hda3
[root@localhost as-hdaBulk-hda3]# touch 050223test
touch: cannot touch `050223test': Permission denied
[root@localhost as-hdaBulk-hda3]# touch /a/as-sata_bulk/050223test
I found no messages in /var/log.
Could this be problem with my Selinux configuration? Is there a way to get the error logged? Any other ideas for troubleshooting this problem?
