Error description

  • AIX does not allow special characters in user or group
    names.
    When a non-AIX NFS server returns owner and owner.group
    names
    that have these special characters, commands on AIX NFSv4
    client could fail.
    
    For example:
    
    # ls -ltr
    ls: 0653-341 The file ./X#FTDXZB.check does not exist.
    total 64
    -rw-r--r--    1 duncanx  testdata      29666 03 May 2013
    ISO-8859-1.txt
    -rw-r--r--    1 sapadm   nobody            0 15 May 08:55
    SAPADM.check
    -rw-r--r--    1 nobody   nobody            0 15 May 08:55
    DS0ADM.check
    
    The file "./X#FTDXZB.check" is owned by root.x#ftdxzb
    Since the group name contains invalid characters the
    translation to GID failed.
    
    This issue applies to NFSv4 only.
    

Local fix

  • None.
    Do not use invalid characters in the user/group names.
    

Problem summary

  • 'ls -ltr' output incorrectly gives
    ls: 0653-341 The file <fileName> does not exist.
    error message
    

Problem conclusion

  • In extract_name_and_domain(), do not call suspicious()
    

Temporary fix
