pvfs2-chown - Man Page

pvfs2-chown – modify the owner and group of files in OrangeFS volumes

Synopsis

pvfs2-chown [-v] user group filename(s)

Description

The pvfs2-chown utility modifies the owner and group of the OrangeFS files specified. The user and group are either numerical or symbolic.  Symbolic names will be looked up on the local system.

The options are as follows:

-v

Print version number and exit.

Environment

PVFS2_DEBUGFILE

If set to the path of a local file, redirect debug output to it.

PVFS2_DEBUGMASK

Set the OrangeFS debug mask.  Possible masks are documented in pvfs2-set-debugmask(1).

PVFS2TAB_FILE

If set, the full pathname for an alternate pvfs2tab file

Files

/etc/passwd

/etc/pvfs2tab

Examples

Set a file's owner to user and group to group.

pvfs2-chown user group /mnt/foo

Caveats

In a network of multiple clients, if the user database is not sychronized between systems, these settings will have little meaning. They will be enforced, which can cause problems if this is not wanted.

Note that because OrangeFS is a network file system, any user with access to the network may be able to circumvent file permissions.

Bugs
