[Lustre-discuss] [HPDD-discuss] root squash problem

>From the Ops Manual (and hence not from direct experience), setting the nosquash_nids on the MGS will affect all MDTs -- it is a global setting when applied using conf_param on the MGS. In which case, the command will return an error when you specify an individual MDT using conf_param on the MGS.

Instead, specify the file system that one wants to apply the squash rule to:

lctl conf_param <fsname>.mdt.nosquash_nids="<nids>"


lctl conf_param umt3.mdt.nosquash_nids=" at tcp"

To set this per MDT, use mkfs.lustre or tunefs.lustre (refer to the Lustre Operations Manual, section 22.2).
