I have an Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS (GNU/Linux 4.4.0-97-generic x86_64) server with a Synology NAS mounted at /mnt/media via NFS.

From a bash shell, I cd into /mnt/media and perform a mkdir new-folder

The folder is created but there are no folder permissions assigned.

Why ? I can chmod the directory but this is a real problem for processes that want to create a directory for its use.

EDIT: ls -la /mnt/

gregory@backup:~$ ls -la /mnt/
total 120
drwxr-xr-x    8 root root   4096 Jun  9  2017 .

drwxrwxrwx   17 root media  4096 Mar  4 19:59 media
