Subject: nvmetcli: Unable to run clear/restore

Message-ID: <> (raw)

While experimenting with nvmetcli I'm unable to run clear or restore.

Using master branch against Fedora 31, 5.5.9-200.fc31.x86_64

# ./nvmetcli clear
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./nvmetcli", line 740, in <module>
  File "./nvmetcli", line 722, in main
  File "./nvmetcli", line 689, in clear
  File "/root/projects/nvmetcli/nvmet/", line 315, in clear_existing
  File "/root/projects/nvmetcli/nvmet/", line 677, in delete
  File "/root/projects/nvmetcli/nvmet/", line 200, in delete
PermissionError: [Errno 1] Operation not permitted:

# ./nvmetcli restore
No saved config file at None, ok, exiting

I just posted a patch series, with those changes when I repeat the
restore I get

# ./nvmetcli restore
Error processing config file at None, error [Errno 1] Operation not
permitted: '/sys/kernel/config/nvmet/ports/0/ana_groups/1', exiting

Same error when trying to run `make test` eg.

[Errno 1] Operation not permitted:

Do I have a mismatch between kernel and user space here or am I missing
