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, #175002]



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,
