I have a readynas with nfs sharing. I have a bunch of files that I can't write to on the share. They're owned by nobody:nogroup and if I try to chown them I get
chown: changing ownership of `myfile': Operation not permitted
even when I run it as root. I've played around with my /etc/fstab, but here's how I have it now:
192.168.1.25:/media /media/readynas nfs defaults 0 0
I've also tried stuff with the /etc/exports file on the readynas to not squash root's write ability
"/media" *(insecure,insecure_locks,rw,async) mattr-desktop(insecure,insecure_locks,rw,no_root_squash,async)
I'm at a loss what to do next, so any suggestions would be appreciated. There are many files on the NFS share that I can write to, and I can write new files, so I'm not sure why the files owned by nobody aren't writable or ownable. I can move the files to my local drive, chown them there, and move them back and they're fine too.
