HP-UX non-root chown on NFSv3

Attempting to perform chown as a non-privilege user and getting not owner on HP-UX 11.31 for a file on a NFS mount. I've verified the Global Privilege for CHOWN is configured on the HP system

 

A look at packet traces shows the SETATTR call for the chown request see us attmepting to set the UID and also attempting to set the mode to 0100640. 

 

On HP-UX 11.11, I only see a an attempt to change the uid in the SETATTR call, no attempt to change the mode.

 

Any idea if this behavior is configurable in HP-UX 11.31???

I think so.  But if the NFS server is Linux, you can't.

Do you have some extra zeros there?  (Though it is 16 bits.)  Ok, that 0100000 maps into "regular".

I would think it has to reset the SUID bits.
