Subject Subversion Can't set permissions on [500, #13]
Date Fri, 09 Jan 2015 09:18:23 GMT
Hello guys,

we have a strange behavior.

We have Ubuntu 12.04 installed with Subversion 1.8.10. The authentication works through Apache
(https) and ldap authentication.
The subversion repositories reside on a netapp share (mounted through cifs).

This is the entry in /etc/fstab:
//fileserver04.insiders.zz/SVN_PROD     /data/SVN_PROD  cifs    noperm,username=domain/user,password=mypass,uid=33,gid=33,nobrl,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777,setuids,cache=none
    0       0

Until yesterday everything worked.

The repository  has 52999 versions. Now when a Client tries to check-in a next revision (TortoiseSVN)
he gets the failure:
"Can't set permission on  '/data/SVN_PROD/{path_to_repo}/db/revs/53'"

The apache log says:
[Thu Jan 08 14:27:02 2015] [error] [client] Could not MERGE resource "/Development/smartFIX/!svn/txn/52999-16wb"
into "/Development/smartFIX/Current/trunk/dev/src".  [500, #0]
[Thu Jan 08 14:27:02 2015] [error] [client] An error occurred while committing
the transaction.  [500, #13]
[Thu Jan 08 14:27:02 2015] [error] [client] Can't set permissions on '/data/SVN_PROD/Development/smartFIX/db/revs/53'
 [500, #13]
[Thu Jan 08 14:27:02 2015] [error] [client] Can't set permissions on '/data/SVN_PROD/Development/smartFIX/db/revs/53':
Permission denied  [500, #13]
[Thu Jan 08 14:27:02 2015] [error] [client] Could not fetch resource information.
 [404, #0]
[Thu Jan 08 14:27:02 2015] [error] [client] Named transaction doesn't exist.  [404,

My guess is he wants to create the new folder 53 (which works well), but the permission on
the folder he can not set (chmod, chown).

I copied the repository on a local directory and connected to the repository through svn://.
I could created more than 53000 revisions.

Has anyone any idea what could be the problem?

Best regards,
