1.155.1.  RHEA-2009:1407: enhancement update

Updated nfs4-acl-tools packages that fix a bug are now available.
The nfs4-acl-tools packages provide utilities for managing NFSv4 Access Control Lists (ACLs) on files and directories mounted on ACL-enabled NFSv4 file systems. These updated packages fix the following bug:
  • the mapping between ACLs in the draft POSIX standard and NFSv4 ACLs used in previous versions of the nfs4-acl-tools did not accept all NFSv4 ACLs. As a result, attempts to set an ACL on an NFS server could fail with the message "Operation not supported". Nfs4-acl-tools has been rebased to upstream version 0.3.3, which contains completely new mapping code that handles practically all NFSv4 ACLs. (BZ#507443)
All NFS users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve this issue.
