StorageClass does not honour mountOption

It seems the default provisioner in the StorageClass does not honour the mountOptions values. I tried to mount a block storage setting dir and file mode to 0777 and they were mounted with root only permissions. I need to change write permission because my containers run nginx which runs as root www-data. A workaround is to manually change the directory permission via chmod (either when the container starts with the command + args directives or directly logging in into the container).

Here’s my StorageClass and the PersistentVolumeClaims:

kind: StorageClass
  name: storage-rw
- dir_mode=0777
- file_mode=0777
kind: PersistentVolumeClaim
apiVersion: v1
  name: backend
  - ReadWriteOnce
      storage: 5Ti
  storageClassName: storage-rw

Note: in azure aks with a storage account paired to the kubernetes shadow resource group and a similar configuration (changing only StorageClass.provisioner: and PersistentVolumeClaim.spec.accessModes: ReadWriteMany) allows me to create dynamic volumes with the correct file permissions.


Nice to see DO, ignoring a question :( I got the same problem

This is not the only post on this question and, 3 years later, the question is still ignored. I actually have been paying them for 3 years; might as well bite the bullet and head to AWS. Yuck.
