chown Invalid argument centos solved problem

Good morning, I am working and changing the ownership folder of my home, but I cannot run chown command. It is Error “Invalid argument”. This is indeed an NFS4 issue. The error chown Invalid argument as following below:

[root@Client ~]# chown -R huupv:huupv /home/huupv                                                    
chown: changing ownership of `huupv/.bashrc': Invalid argument
chown: changing ownership of `huupv': Invalid argument

My environment

Client <---> NFS server

How can I fix chown Invalid argument this

You need to check step by step as below:

NFS client:

[root@Client ~]# cat /etc/redhat-release
Centos 6

NFS Server

[root@DevopsRoles ~]# cat /etc/redhat-release
Centos 7

Configure NFS server

[root@DevopsRoles ~]# cat /etc/exports

The Content in file exports

#Data Volume Share

Solve Problem

From the Client, we will umount and mount as below

[root@Client ~]# umount /mnt/data # if umount is busy then you need run umount -lf /mnt/data
[root@Client ~]# mount -t nfs -o vers=3  /mnt/data
[root@Client ~]# chown -R huupv:huupv /home/huupv

You have solved the problem “chown Invalid argument centos” Thank you for reading the DevopsRoles page!
