[Gluster-users] GlusterFS 3.7.2 and ACL

Another issue with NFS and sec=sys mode. As we all know there is a limit of 15 security ids involved when running NFS in sec=sys mode. This limit makes effective and granular usage of ACL assigned through groups almost unusable. One way to overcome this limit is to use kerberised NFS but GlusterFS does not natively support this access mode . Another option, at least according to one email thread, states that GlusterFS has an option server.manage-gids which should mitigate this limit and raise it to 90 something. Is this the option, which can be used for increasing sec=sys limit. Sadly documentation does not have clear description about this option, what exactly this option does and how it should be used.
