I'm working with zfs-fuse as a way to provide filesystem compression on existing CentOS 5 servers. I'm dealing with a highly-compressible dataset (80%), so zfs-fuse comes in handy. I'm encountering file permission problems with the storage pools.
It appears that zfs-fuse is ignoring or only partially recognizing file permissions for non-owners.
Assuming a zfs-fuse filesystem mounted at:
/app/november comprised of files with permissions of 666 (-rw-rw-rw-) and owner "jack", I can read files and delete them as user "jill". However, I cannot write to those files or save them. Basically, everything is read-only if I'm not the owner of the files.
[jill@Vail /app/november]$ whoami jill [jill@Vail /app/november]$ ls -l testfile -rw-rw-rw- 1 jack jack 27 Dec 18 12:12 testfile [jill@Vail /app/november]$ touch testfile touch: setting times of `testfile': Operation not permitted [jill@Vail /app/november]$ rm testfile [jill@Vail /app/november]$ touch testfile [jill@Vail /app/november]$ ls -l total 1 -rw-rw-rw- 1 jill jill 0 Dec 18 13:57 testfile
Any ideas? Is there a fix for this? I think this is a Fuse issue, as I've seen similar issues elsewhere for this and other Fuse filesystems...
zfs-fuse package was downloaded from the EPEL repository.
Edit - The mount output is as follows, showing zpool mounts and the Fuse info.
