Server :: RHEL 5 - How To Set Permissions On Files / Folders

Jul 1, 2010

I am using RHEL 5 on my server. The client machines are windows XP.File sharing is through samba server which is working okay. On this file server there is a shared directory for users. This directory contains files which are used by various users through oracle APP. and DB server.

At present the folders under the "shared" folder are having all permissions i.e. 777. To restrict certain things, I want that users may read and modify the files but may not be in a position to move or delete the files. How to set the permissions on the folders/files in this scenario?

Fedora :: Configuring Directory Server 389 Samba LDAP Tools

Feb 5, 2010

I've been busy with configuring Samba with the 389-Directory Server (former Fedora Directory Server) for the past weeks and I almost have everything working. The last thing (I hope) that I haven working are the smbldap-tools which I'd like to use for adding computers and users to the domain. The part where I'm stuck is with the security certificates. I don know how to get the client certificates out of my installation.

My smbldap.conf file contains this:
# $Source: $
# $Id: smbldap.conf,v 1.18 2005/05/27 14:28:47 jtournier Exp $
# smbldap-tools.conf : Q & D configuration file for smbldap-tools
# Purpose :
# . be the configuration file for all smbldap-tools scripts .....

I used the script to setup ssl for my 389-ds, which seemed to have worked fine. I however simply have no clou how to get client certificates out of this.

Server :: Permissions On Autofs Directory?

May 27, 2011

I'm setting up an automatic mount point on one of my servers. However, for this file I only want certain people (permissions) to access it once it is mounted. I'm figuring I need to place this either on an ACL (via setfacl) or by configuring this in my mount point config file (auto.misc) . Has anyone done this before, restrict use of an auto mounted directory?

Server :: Group Share Directory Permissions

Jul 8, 2010

On our fileserver, we primary use samba to share files to our users, but a few users have to use ssh/sftp to access the file server. In samba we have the shares setup so that permissions are forced to be the correct group owner and group read/write. The problem is those few who access via ssh/sftp. There files do not have the correct permissions. These people are not the most computer savvy, I'm dealing with biologist here. Is there some way to fix this or will I just have to setup a cron job to go through and set permissions periodically?

General :: Internet Not Working In RHEL 5 Even After Configuring?

Apr 5, 2011

I installed RHEL 5 today and set my network. Did it as follows:Eth0 connectionPrimary DNS I click on Activate, it says:8139too device eth0 does not seem to be present, delaying initialization.This message shows no matter how many times I log out or restart.I don't know what the heck is the problem. I've done the essentials but still it's not working. I looked up on the net but people were saying things like ifconfig and lspci, and at the end still weren't able to solve it. I don't know all this since I'm new to Linux. Another important thing...after facing this same problem some time ago, I installed Centos which asked for internet settings right at the time of installation. And after logging in for the first time, I was able to use internet without any problem. How come internet works on Centos (which is a copy of RHEL) without any problems, but not working on RHEL itself?

Ubuntu Servers :: Configuring Samba Permissions To Emulate Netware?

Apr 22, 2010

I'm replacing an ancient Netware server with a new Ubuntu 8.04 box running samba and LDAP. I want to see if there's a way to get Samba to emulate the way permissions propagate through Netware. Namely, if I see a directory structure like this:

[User Cant See]
--- [User Cant See]
------- User Can Edit.txt
------- User CANT Edit.txt

With Netware I can give permission to User to edit "User Can Edit.txt" and the permissions will propagate in reverse to allow User to see the two [User Cant See] directories and edit the text file. "User CANT Edit.txt" will still be invisible to User. This is very convenient as I can simply give user access to one file, they can navigate to it through the directory structure, and all files not explicitly given access to will still be invisible.

With Samba the only way I've been seeing to get this would be to explicitly give User access to both [User Cant See] directories, give him access to the "User Can Edit.txt" and remove any access to "User CANT Edit.txt" and every other file in the latter two nested directories.

Software :: RHEL 5.5 - Rsync Not Retaining Permissions

Jan 28, 2011

I've got an older RHEL 5.5 server that we're using for our company email server. We're going to retire this server and I've created a new Debian Linux server as it's replacement. Now I'm trying to rsync all the users /home/ directories to the new server however when I tested this, I noticed a problem. In the old source server where I'm running the actual rsync command from, everyone's home directory is owned by their unique UID and a generic GID (100 = users). So when I execute this command on the old RHEL 5.5 server:

rsync -e ssh -avz /home/* root@

Why are all the users home directories being owned by root:root on the target server? It's not owned by root:root on RHEL 5.5 and the only thing I can think of is my rsync command is wrong. According to the man page, I can see that using the -a switch should preserve all file ownership and much more. It's not doing this on the target Debian server. If it tries to copy over /home/bob and it's owned by bob:users, if Debian didn't know or have a UID for Bob, wouldn't it just assign a UID from RHEL 5.5 to the Debian server? So like /hone/bob would be owned by 1009:users?

Red Hat :: Duplicating A RHEL 5.1 32bit Server On RHEL 5.4 64 Bit

Dec 9, 2009

I have a database server running RHEL 5.1 32 bit that suffered some catastrophic failures about 6 months ago. We were able to patch it back together and keep it running, but now the manufacturing site it supports is going to shut down for two weeks and I would like to replace it permenantly. Does anyone have any guidance for that sort of thing? I'd like to have the new server up and running before hand, basically changing the hostname/ip and restoring the databases only on conversion day. I've done this in the past with HP UX - Red Hat conversions, but this is my first red hat to red hat move. Any advice or shortcuts?I forgot to add the other wrinkle. The new server will be running 64bit linux.

Red Hat :: RHEL Authenticate To Active Directory Using LDAP

Apr 29, 2011

I manage to get RHEL Authenticate to Active Directory using LDAP and Kerberos. When a user authenticate to the Unix, the Unix system will check (using Kerberos) to the AD. However I just found out that when the RHEL (LDAP) did the authentication to the AD (to ensure that the RHEL has the right permission to query the LDAP database), it uses simple bind which send the username/password unencrypted over the network.

1) Can We use Kerberos as well? for the initial authentication described above?
2) If Not possible, is there a way to encrypt the username/password in the storage (ldap.conf -because it's world readble)? I know that for tranmission I can use SSL.

Debian :: Permissions For Anonymous Ftp Directory?

Aug 9, 2010

I set up an FTP server with two separate directories. One of them is mine, and the other one is shared (for anonymous ftp). The layout is like this.

/home/hallvor <---- this is my ftp directory where I keep my private files. I am the only user.
/home/ftp <---- this is the shared ftp directory with anonymous login.

Whenever I transfer files from my ftp directory to the public /home/ftp, I would like to: prevent anonymous users from deleting files in /home/ftp or uploading their own files to that directory (read only) What permissions must I set? I think this is all a bit confusing. I tried to chmod /home/ftp to 644 and change ownership to root, but that made it impossible to even log on anonymously.
