[Gluster-users] Permissions on mount point

Hi everyone,


How do I change the permissions on a glusterfs mount? I have mounted a
glusterfs volume in /scratch/notbackedup, but when a regular user tries
to write to that directory, they get "access denied". This is because
that directory does not have write permissions for users:


[root at lead scratch]# ls -la /scratch

total 60

drwxr-xr-x  6 root root  4096 2009-06-17 04:46 .

drwxr-xr-x 28 root root  4096 2009-06-17 07:00 ..

drwxr-xr-x  2 root root  4096 2009-06-17 07:18 .glusterfs_storage

drwxr-xr-x  2 root root  8192 2009-06-17 18:15 notbackedup


However, even though I set the permissions to 1777 on the mount point,
once that mount is established, the permissions change and I do not know
where those permissions are coming from. Is there any way to override
those default permissions?


I am using GlusterFS 2.0.1-1, compiled from the source RPMS.
