Rights problem with CIFS and DST


we have the following problem:

Users are set as trustee on a subdirectory with rwcefm rights. Works fine with OES Client. But with CIFS the users can't create files or directories; they can delete and modify existing files.

OES 2018, NSS, DST.

python dst_verify_resync_trustee.py -s does not help.

Manually creating the same directory on the secondary volume and then dst_verify_resync_trustee.py -s DOES help.

REPLICATE_PRIMARY_TREE_TO_SHADOW ist not set, but I don't think that is needed - am I wrong?

Sounds like a bug to me - what do you think?

Re: Rights problem with CIFS and DST

In case somebody is interested: I opened a Service Request and got the following information, summarized:

Since OES 2015 there is a change: CIFS relies directly on NSS for trustee information. Because NSS is not DST aware this requires consistent trustees on primary and secondary volumes. This in turn requires REPLICATE_PRIMARY_TREE_TO_SHADOW set to 1.

Additional helpful tips from support:

- ncpcon nss verify={Volume_name} to check if trustees are consistent between NCP and NSS
- ncpcon nss sync={Volume_name} to synchronize from NSS to NCP
- SYNC_TRUSTEES_TO_NSS_AT_VOLUME_MOUNT temporarily set to 1 to synchronize from NCP to NSS
- dst_verify_resync_trustee.py to sychronize from primary NSS to secondary NSS
- the rights command must be used with --dst to set rights on both, primary and secondary volume
