SAMQFS: Shared Mount Point File Ownership Keeps Getting Changed Between The Zones (Doc ID 2644631.1)

Last updated on MARCH 05, 2020

Applies to:

Oracle Hierarchical Storage Manager (HSM) and StorageTek QFS Software - Version 6.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

HSM is installed on a global zone and there are two non-global zones which have SAMQFS mounted on them.
When trying to change the owner of the files from the shares filesystem on zone 1 to the desired one,  the user permissions are wrongly changed on zone2.

 

Scenario1:

When setting "user1" on all the files in the shared directory on zone1, they appear like this on zone1 and zone2:

############################################

root@zone1:/sharedFS# ls -lrt
drwxrwxrwx 2 user1 user1 16384 Jan 5 15:15 directory1
-rwxrwxrwx 1 user1 user1 4848 Jan 19 09:27 file1
-rwxrwxrwx 1 user1 user1 5463 Jan 19 10:33 script1.sh
drwxrwxrwx 3 user1 user1 4096 Jan 19 10:33 directory2
drwxrwxrwx 4 user1 user1 4096 Jan 19 10:33 directory3
drwxrwxrwx 5 user1 user1 4096 Jan 19 10:33 directory4

============================================

root@zone2:/sharedFS# ls -lrt
drwxrwxrwx 2 user2 user1 16384 Jan 5 15:15 directory1
-rwxrwxrwx 1 user2 user1 4848 Jan 19 09:27 file1
-rwxrwxrwx 1 user2 user1 5463 Jan 19 10:33 script1.sh
drwxrwxrwx 3 user2 user1 4096 Jan 19 10:33 directory2
drwxrwxrwx 4 user2 user1 4096 Jan 19 10:33 directory3
drwxrwxrwx 5 user2 user1 4096 Jan 19 10:33 directory4

############################################

 

Scenario2:

When setting "user1" on all the files in the shared directory on zone1, instead of the user name, there is a number that represents the actual user ID number:

############################################

root@zone1:/sharedFS# ls -lrt
drwxrwxrwx 2 user1 user1 16384 Jan 5 15:15 directory1
-rwxrwxrwx 1 user1 user1 4848 Jan 19 09:27 file1
-rwxrwxrwx 1 user1 user1 5463 Jan 19 10:33 script1.sh
drwxrwxrwx 3 user1 user1 4096 Jan 19 10:33 directory2
drwxrwxrwx 4 user1 user1 4096 Jan 19 10:33 directory3
drwxrwxrwx 5 user1 user1 4096 Jan 19 10:33 directory4

============================================

root@zone2:/sharedFS# ls -lrt
drwxrwxrwx 2 999 user1 16384 Jan 5 15:15 directory1
-rwxrwxrwx 1 999 user1 4848 Jan 19 09:27 file1
-rwxrwxrwx 1 999 user1 5463 Jan 19 10:33 script1.sh
drwxrwxrwx 3 999 user1 4096 Jan 19 10:33 directory2
drwxrwxrwx 4 999 user1 4096 Jan 19 10:33 directory3
drwxrwxrwx 5 999 user1 4096 Jan 19 10:33 directory4
