The 'hdfs' user is unable to write to an encrypted zone with the NFS Gateway after making the NFS server side HDFS location an encrypted zone.

When trying to copy into the encrypted zone getting permission denied error:

# cp test.txt /root/nfszone/
cp: cannot create regular file `/root/nfszone/test.txt': Permission denied

Also no data is copying. It is showing 0 byte files.

# ls -ltrs /root/nfszone/
total 0
0 -rw-r--r-- 1 root nfsgroup 0 Aug 25 14:20 b
0 -rwxr-xr-x 1 root nfsgroup 0 Aug 31 15:45 test.txt

The hdfs location shows the following after using the 'hadoop fs -put' command:

# hadoop fs -ls /nfszone
Found 2 items
-rw-r--r-- 3 root nfsgroup 0 2015-08-25 14:20 /nfszone/b
-rwxr-xr-x 3 root nfsgroup 0 2015-08-31 15:45 /nfszone/test.txt
