Unhappy Files owned with AD user don't get deleted by root. "Operation not permitted" error.

Hi Guys,

I have a 3 node gfs cluster on Centos 5.6. All the 3 nodes are integrated with Active Directory through LDAP client. I have a task to delete a file from the gfs file system. This file shows me the uid and the group name in ownership tab. Which is weird... As far as I understand, the ownership tab should show the owner name and the group name.

However, I was thinking that the user must be deleted from the Active directory. That is the reason I get such output.

Coming to the point..... When I try to delete such files (with uid:group_name). I get an error stating "operation not permitted"

I checked the lsattr command on the file. But lsattr does not support as it is a gfs file system.

Any help on this would be really appreciated...


active directory, file delete, gfs, ownership, permission denied
