The chown(1) fails to change ownership from root on NFSv4 filesystems
- Upgrade to RHEL 6.3 has introduced a problem whereby we can no longer change/set the ownership of files on NFSv4 filesystems.
Chown fails if NFS share has mounted with NFSv4.
# chown test.test /mnt/foo chown: changing ownership of `/mnt/foo': Invalid argument
Issue may also exist in later versions of RHEL 5, but this has not been confirmed at this time.

- Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5(only where NFSv4 is supported)
