Hi all,

I've setup a umask of 0 for testing on both NFS client (Centos 5.2) and NFS server (OSX 10.5.5 server).

I can create files as one user and edit/save out as another user w/o issue when directly logged into the server via ARD.

However, when I attempt the same from an NFS mount on a client machine, even as root I get the following error using vi;

"file" E212: Can't open file for writing

Looking at the system.log file on the server, I see;

kernel[0]: add_fsevent: no name hard-link! dropping the event. (event 2 vp == 0xa5db510 (-UNKNOWN-FILE)).

This baffles me. My umask is 0 meaning files I create and attempt to edit as other users are 777, but I cannot save out edits unless I do a wq! in vi. At that point, the owner of the file changes to whomever did the vi.

This isn't just a vi issue as it happens using any editor, but I like to use vi.

Any help is greatly appreciated. Hey, beer is on me!

Mac OS X (10.5.5)
