    Weird directory uid guid (4294967295) - no access


    Hey,

    I have the following problem with one of the directories in a mounted ext3 (/dev/sdb1 on /oracle type ext3 (rw)) filesystem on

    Linux 2.6.18-194.11.1.0.1.el5 #1 SMP Tue Aug 10 16:56:30 EDT 2010 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

    I cannot acccess it by any means even as a root,
    - listing attributes fails (lsattr: Inappropriate ioctl for device While reading flags on /oracle/fmwhome/user_projects)
    - changing ownership doesn't work (chown: changing ownership of `/oracle/fmwhome/user_projects': Operation not permitted)

    The entry for the directory is weird, with uid and guid set to -1 and weird mdate

    ?rwsrwsrwt 65535 4294967295 4294967295 4294967295 Dec 31 1969 user_projects

    Anybody has any clue?

    Thanks.

    Best.
