While I agree that R/W permissions is now correct from the finder with NFS mounts, my client boxes still see the NFS permissions weird "You have custom access" when getting info on a file or directory - Is anyone else having that problem? Feels like it is "fixed" but not completely resolved the way it behaved in 10.6.6 and earlier. I don't want to change my /etc/exports if I can prevent it - it was working fine before. Any ideas anyone? I did remove all ACL's from the mount as a first measure, but same "You have custom access". Did NFS implementation get more complex since 10.6.7? I was thinking about exporting with no_acl and seeing what that did, because "You have custom access" feels like it might be ACL related.
my exports file (Leopard 10.5.8) /etc/exports:
/Volumes/RAID -mapall=rush:staff -network 192.168.1 -mask 255.255.255.0
I had a crapload of problems just like yours with OS X 10.7.5, and it seems that while they fixed their ****, they didn't fix it well enough that you didn't need a reboot!
I could mount my share as /server1 instead of /server and be allowed to create and delete files in finder, but no kind of magic fu would allow me to change anything in /server.
Except a reboot.
