I've installed a new F11 server, w/OpenLDAP. Users access an lvm/ext4 volume via
netatalk & samba. Selinux is permissive.
Some users were getting "sharing violation" or "disk full" for afp and
smb respectively on some existing files, though 2.2TB are free and new files were fine.
I found that when opening a shell as these users (#su - username), they indeed could NOT
edit the files, at least with vim. What they could do was "append" to the files
via "# echo 1 >>badfile.html ". Then after appending, vim would write to
that file just fine and netatalk & samba were now happy with that file too.
I've run lsattr, I've run setfacl to list permissions, I've updated the
kernel, I've rebooted, I've run fsck, I've checked "mount" for acl,
I've checked syslog . . . I'm stumped.
I thought that if you couldn't write, you couldn't append either? Any ideas?
