[lustre-discuss] lustre file system mounted as (ro), is that right?

This is just the status of the local MDT mountpoint, which does not allow any local modification, only statfs (df) and such.

You need to mount a Lustre client to get a read-write mountpoint.

I have finally installed lustre 2.8.0 following Christopher's suggestion (although it didn't compile on the latest kernel, 327.22). But it mounted as read-only (ro) on mds, is that right?
Here are the steps/info:

installed kernel:




  *   installed zfs-release, and edited zfs.repo to use kmod.
  *   yum clean metadata
  *   yum install zfs spl kmod-zfs kmod-spl kmod-zfs-devel kmod-spl-devel
  *   Then rpmbuild --rebuild --with zfs --without ldiskfs ./lustre...rpm
  *   Then installed all the lustre rpms
  *   loaded zfs spl lustre lnet modules
  *   mkfs.lustre --reformat --fsname=lustre01 --mgs --mdt --backfstype=zfs --index=0 --mgsnode= at o2ib --servicenode= at o2ib mdt01-pool/mgsmdt01
  *   echo "mds1 - lustre01-MDT0000 zfs:mdt01-pool/mgsmdt01" > /etc/ldev.conf
  *   echo "options lnet networks=o2ib(ib0)" > /etc/modprobe.d/lustre.conf
  *   systemctl start lustre.service didn't work, had to use service lustre start
  *   then "mount" shows the following:

mdt01-pool/mgsmdt01 on /mnt/lustre/local/lustre01-MDT0000 type lustre (ro)

Is this right?

If I try to ls /mnt/lustre/local/lustre01-MDT000, it will say:

ls: cannot access /mnt/lustre/local/lustre01-MDT0000/: Not a directory

Thanks a lot for your time and help! First time doing lustre, a lot to learn.
