since the upgrade from glusterFS 3.0.0 to 3.1.1, some users have
experienced strange problems. When they want to create a folder or a
file, this usually works, but sometimes, it doesn't. The error message
is something like "Permission Denied".
The permissions and ownership of the affected folders seem to be set
correctly. I tried to chown -R user:group user/ anyway and it helped
once. It even occurs that when jobs try to write output back from our
batch system, most jobs can write files that are accessible, but a small
number cannot write their output (to the same folder at the same time).
Another problem, that might be related to the ones above is that
whenever a users tries to delete a directory, the following message occurs:
rm: cannot remove directory `test/': No such file or directory
but the directory is deleted anyway.
I've also seen files, that seem to have no permissions at all, e.g.
----------T 2 root root 4.1K Jan 17 10:26 mc_jpsi
This can be fixed manually, but is still very strange.
About our setup:
Volume Name: lemmy
Number of Bricks: 5
There is sufficient space left on all bricks. The operating systems of
the servers are debian5 (once) and Ubuntu 10.04 server (4 times). The
bricks have different filesystems (ext4 and xfs).
Thanks and Best Regards,
