Cannot delete files on NSS volume

Hello,

we use miggui to migrate our files from netware to oes2sp3 based nss volume.
From the shell on the oes2sp3 machines it is not possible to delete some of the files as root.

rm -rf <somefile> leads to
rm: cannot remove directory xyz: permission denied


even after chmoding 777 on the file it is the same error.
Any ideas?

thx.

Whilst you may be logged in as root (the SLES "super user"), it's not
the same as admin (the OES "super user").

HTH.

Hi Hugo,

In the line of what Simon already mentions.. NSS has some own attributes that prevail over the Linux root right (for files on the NSS volume that have a specific attribute set).
Using a workstation with the Novell client installed, check to see that the Novell 'delete inhibit' attribute is not set on the directory.

Cheers,
Willem
