Hi Sun Managers, thank you all.
I posted last Friday a question about ls on a new filesystem (see
orginal attached at the end of this message).
It turns out the permissions of the directory before I mount on
top of it is not okay.
first umount the filesystem and check the mount point permissions.
The permission for mount point is:
drwxr----- 8 root 512 Sep 16 01:38 /newfs
I changed the permission of the mount point to 755, mount the filesystem
again and everything is fine now. :-)
