We are configuring NAS device on linux for RAC installation.

ISSUE:

I had mounted NAS device to Linux server.As root
user I can create directory but cannot change owner of cifs mount.It say permission denied.When I try to change permission it doesn't work.The mount point show the uid and gid as 33 and permissions drwxr-xr-x

I had mounted using the following command

#mount -t cifs storage:/ocr1 /u02/ocr1 -o username=XXXX,password=XXXX,uid=oracle,gid=dba


Permission denied

[root@SSIPL-WRKST-116 u02]# chown -R oracle:dba ocr1
chown: changing ownership of `ocr1': Permission denied
chown: changing ownership of `ocr1/ss': Permission denied
[root@SSIPL-WRKST-116 u02]#

Change owner

[root@SSIPL-WRKST-116 u02]# ls -lrt
total 0
drwxr-xr-x 3 33 33 0 Dec 4 2006 ocr1
[root@SSIPL-WRKST-116 u02]# chmod -R 777 ocr1
[root@SSIPL-WRKST-116 u02]# ls -lrt
total 0
drwxr-xr-x 3 33 33 0 Dec 4 2006 ocr1
[root@SSIPL-WRKST-116 u02]#

1. Change mount point owner to your user other than root
As per my requirement it is oracle

# chown oracle:oinstall linuxdir

2. Change permission to mount

# chmod 6555 mount
-rwsr-sw-x mount

3. To run sudo as user 'oracle' edit sudo conf file

# visudo
oracle all=(root) all

Add above mentioned line


4. Now Run from user (oracle)

oralcle@server#sudo mount -t cifs //systemname/share /mnt/linuxdir -0 username=oracle,password=sdfsdf,uid=oracle,gid=oinstall

5. Now you can see the change in owner name to your mounted windows shared directory.
