gcsfuse Input/Output error

I'm getting an Input/Output error when I try and create a directory or file in a google cloud storage bucket mounted on a linux (Ubuntu 15.10) directory.

Steps I have done:

  • Created a user named transfer

  • Created a
    directory and ran
    chown -R transfer /mnt/backups

  • As the user transfer, ran
    gcsfuse --implicit-dir backup01-bucket
    . The file system mounts successfully

  • Run
    mkdir test
    and get the error
    mkdir: cannot create directory test: Input/output error

Is there something I missed? What I'm trying to do is be able to ftp files to the server and store them in the google storeage bucket rather than local storage.

I modified the command to get some debug information:

gcsfuse --implicit-dirs --foreground --debug_gcs --debug_fuse backup01-bucket /mnt/backups

Then ran
mkdir /mnt/backups/test
as the

The following bedug information came out:

It appears from the Insufficient Permission errors in your debug output that gcsfuse doesn't have sufficient permissions to your bucket. Probably it has read-only access.

Be sure to read the credentials documentation for gcsfuse. In particular, if you're using a service account on a GCE VM make sure to set up the VM with the storage-full access scope.
