Thread: Permissions issue with ReiserFS filesystem

    Default Permissions issue with ReiserFS filesystem

    Hi there --

    We are utilizing the ReiserFS filesystem on one of our servers. Whenever we try to change the owner and the permissions of one of the directories as root or sudo user, they will eventually revert back to their original owner and permissions.

    Original:
    drwx------ ahk users archive

    Desired:
    drwxrwxrwx root root archive
    The commands that are being used to change the ownership and permissions of the directory in question are shown below:

    root user:
    Code:
    # chown root:root archive
    # chmod 777 archive
    sudo user:
    Code:
    # chown root:root archive
    # chmod 777 archive
    The server has not been rebooted in about a month. What could be causing this, and how can it be corrected? Thanks.

    Just a wild-guess, but if the file (or directory) you are trying to change
    permissions is inside another folder from which inherits its permissions
    and the filesystems is setup to use "acl" ("cat /etc/fstab" would help),
    there you have the answer.

    Greetings,
