8.150. nfs-utils-lib

Updated nfs-utils-lib packages that fix one bug and add one enhancement are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The nfs-utils-lib packages contain support libraries required by the programs in the nfs-utils packages.


Previously, when the chown utility was used on an NFSv4 mount, chown did not adhere to the no_root_squash option, and thus was not able to change the user and group ownership of each given file. With this update, libnfsidmap, a library to help mapping IDs mainly for NFSv4, has been patched, and chown now handles the user and group ownership as expected.
* The rpc.idmapd daemon has been enhanced to be able to parse fully-qualified user names, such as "user@subdomain". Without this enhancement, the UID or GID mappings were failing and clients were incorrectly listed as owned by "nobody".
Users of nfs-utils-lib are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug and add this enhancement.
