Weird.

Also, not that I've tried it, but can root not just chmod nobody's files?

Taken out of context, that sentence is just bizarre ;)...

Code: [ Select ]
# umount /mpoint
# ls -l /
  1. # umount /mpoint
  2. # ls -l /

what does that show you for /mpoint?
can you chown /mpoint with it unmounted then remount it?

Thank you.

Is the path on the remote machine exported read-only (ro)?

Hi,

First of all there was no /etc/exports file in remote machine. So I created the file and gave read/write (rw) permission for the file system in remote machine. And I ran exportfs -a command. But nothing happend in my machine.
So currently I removed that file and ran again the same command in remote machine.
So exports file might be in some other location with some other name OR there is no need to create this file and there should be another logic/technique used.

Please help me.

Thank you.
