I recently debugged a problem  where linkfiles were not created properly
a gluster volume created using bricks running UFS . Whenever a linkfile was
created, the sticky bit was not set on it causing the same file to be
The FreeBSD VM system totally ignores the sticky bit (S_ISVTX) for
executables. On UFS-based file systems (FFS, LFS) the sticky bit may only
be set upon directories.
Based on this I do not think we can support UFS bricks for gluster volumes.
However, I have not worked with FreeBSD so I would like folks who have to
let me know if this is correct or if there is something I am missing.
I was able to force the sticky bit on a file using a testfile attached to
 but it is not straightforward and I am reluctant to propose this.
