Comment 1 Nithya Balachandran 2017-11-17 06:10:27 UTC
On running prove -fv tests/bugs/distribute/bug-1247563.t:

On my system:

getfacl: Removing leading '/' from absolute path names
# file: bricks/brick1/backends/patchy3/dir1/FILE2

On Ravi's system where the issue is reproducible:

[root@ravi1 backends]# getfattr -e hex  -m . -d   ./patchy3/dir1/FILE2 ; getfacl ./patchy3/dir1/FILE2 
# file: patchy3/dir1/FILE2

There is an ACL (system.posix_acl_access)set on the file which causes the following test to fail.

#The linkto file should not have any posix acls set                                                                                                                  
COUNT=`getfacl $FPATH2 |grep -c "user:root:rwx"`                                   
EXPECT "0" echo $COUNT 

From Google:

..."the XFS filesystem which stores ACLs  as trusted.SGI_ACL_FILE extended  attribute and generates system.posix_acl_access on the fly."

Assuming that this is not an attribute the user space should set on a file, I am stripping this out from the results of the listxattr call in dht_migrate_file.

REVIEW: (cluster/dht: Don't set ACLs on linkto file) posted (#1) for review on master by N Balachandran

Comment 3 Worker Ant 2017-11-19 03:06:43 UTC
COMMIT: committed in master by \"N Balachandran\" <> with a commit message- cluster/dht: Don't set ACLs on linkto file

The trusted.SGI_ACL_FILE appears to set posix
ACLs on the linkto file that is a target of
file migration. This can mess up file permissions
and cause linkto identification to fail.
Now we remove all ACL xattrs from the results of
the listxattr call on the source before setting them
on the target.

This bug is getting closed because a release has been made available that should address the reported issue. In case the problem is still not fixed with glusterfs-4.0.0, please open a new bug report.

glusterfs-4.0.0 has been announced on the Gluster mailinglists [1], packages for several distributions should become available in the near future. Keep an eye on the Gluster Users mailinglist [2] and the update infrastructure for your distribution.
