CentOS 5 Networking :: Get Samba To Share Files From Ntfs Drive?

Jun 12, 2009

The file permissions on the folder are RW for user,group and world.(umask=0000) My main problem is with SELinux, I've tried to audit2allow and that seemed to work, all I had to do then was chcon the directory and files to type samba_share_t but the tool fails with Operation Not Supported. Am I to assume you simply cannot share files from a mounted ntfs drive under SELinux? Because I've just spent 2 hours trying and I've just about ready to just give up and just go back to windows when I need to share those folders. There's no way i can copy the folder contents to my Linux partition, far too big for that. Has anyone EVER been able to do this? Do I have to disable SELinux to do it?

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Share (samba) From NTFS Drive?

Sep 15, 2010

I managed to install samba and it's GUI. I tried to share a directory within the pictures folder (at home/mark/pictures/share) just as a test. I had everything set up right, but it was inaccessible from a windows XP machine on my network. After some digging I found the problem lay with the permissions of it's parent folder. I right clicked on the parent folder then clicked properties, then clicked on the permissions tab. I changed the permissions for others and it's working fine.

I'm having the same problem now but with a share on a NTFS drive called storage. I cannot change the permissions for the shared folder or any of it's parents by right clicking. Any changes I make revert immediately back to their previous setting. Is there any way to change the permissions to allow read access to everyone?

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Write To Samba Share (NTFS)

Aug 10, 2010

I have this samba share for ghosting images to (backing up computers at work) and I can read the ghost images just fine from the share, but I am unable to write to the share. From any windows environment I have tried, I get a disk is full error. I have 200GB+ free space, so this is not the actual issue. I believe there is a write permission somewhere that I am overlooking. My setup basically lets me log in under the username samba from a client machine.

Here is my smb.conf file:

Code:

#======================= Global Settings =======================
[global]
workgroup = discount.local
server string = %h server (Samba, Ubuntu)

[code]....

I've tried chown on /media/Images to make it owned by samba, but it just reverts once I remount the partition. Either that or my eyes are playing tricks on me.

Ubuntu Networking :: Sharing USB Drive (NTFS) Via Samba

May 12, 2011

I finally have my ubuntu up and running. I have a USB-drive which is often connected to my Ubuntu-machine. I want to share this via Samba but I can't set the user-rights. If I try to acces the file (via windows machine) I can see the directory but if I open it it gives me: \Computermediadirectory is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. I tried setting the rights but it just 'changes back immediately'. I found some posts about not being able to set rights via ubuntu on a ntfs disk. If I mount it via fstab it will give an error when the USB-drive is not connected. So that's no option. Is there a way to share this drive via my Samba server? I did get access to a partition on my linux-machine, to I assume my samba-settings are correct.

Ubuntu Networking :: Create A Writable (preferably Nautilus Setup) Network Share On External NTFS?drive?

Jul 22, 2010

So I have the strange task of trying to make something like I said above work in Lubuntu 10.04. But every time I do, the share is not accessible because none of the important permissions (other) can be set because its, well, NTFS in linux. And I know of no way to fix it.Is there an easy way, preferably with Nautilus since the person I am setting this up for isn't a computer expert, to setup this share so thats its accessible and writable by other computers on the network?

CentOS 5 Networking :: Can Use Samba Share But Cannot Mount It

May 27, 2010

I am trying to mount a file server directory on a client machine. I tried using NFS, but could not mount the share on the client. Several respobses were given to a post on this problem. but I still was not able mount the NFS share. I decided to try instead to mount the directory as a Samba share because I can already access it using Samba from windows, or from KDE or Gnome using smb://fileserver as a desktop location icon URL. When I try to mount the Samba share I get error messages that nearly identical those that occurred with NFS. . Here are some of the setup parameters

CentOS 5.4 on client and server behind a D-Link router
server IP: 192.168.0.44 (can ping it client)
client IP: 192.168.0.101 (can ping from server)

[code]....

This is the only error message that these commands have produced in the messages log, secure log or smbd log for either machine. My immediate goal is to set up the simplest possible local mount that will allow Grsync to backup to the file server.

Ubuntu Networking :: Samba Can Share Mounted Thumb Drive But Can't Write?

Sep 6, 2010

so after searching and reading, and searching some more, im stuck. i cant seem to get a mounted thumb drive to give write access. first thing to know is that, im using a seagate dockstar with a primary thumb drive[sda1] booting debian and samba.

i guess you could say im still in the testing phase, just trying to make sure files can be shared, mounted and accessed by users. the problem is stated as the title. i have successfully shared a folder in sda1 with rw access, but i cant do the same for the second drive[sdb1].

for sda1 with rw access, here are the smb.conf settings:

Code:
[shared]
path = share
available = yes
valid users = mark

CentOS 5 Networking :: Windows Permissions On Samba Share?

Apr 30, 2009

I have set up a Samba share via my CentOS 5 server (the samba share is actually a mounted filesystem, not local machine space). I have been successful in adding permissions for my windows users within the smb.conf, but have an additional need that I cannot figure out. I would like for my Windows administrators to be able to create folders and assign permissions from their machines (and their Windows GUI). Ultimately I need the folders on the Samba share to behave correctly when Windows group permissions are applied by these administrators.

When the folders are created, the "Everyone" identity cannot be deleted and sometimes "Creator Owner" or "Creater Group" show up. I have seen several threads start down this path, but haven't seen a definite answer (I may have just missed it!).

CentOS 5 Networking :: Samba Share Access Restriction?

Apr 29, 2010

cannot restrict share access to a single user. I've played with the security and valid users options in the smb.conf and I can get it to mount if I remove the valid users option, but this does not provide the access restriction I need. I also left it open and tried making the folder permissions rwx for backupadmin only and that didn't work. I'm using a credentials file which I include below, but I've tried manually entering them in the command too.

[root@aaphst02 /]# mount -t cifs //aapsan01/aapxen01 /mnt/aapxen01 --verbose -o credentials=/root/smbcreds
mount.cifs kernel mount options: unc=//aapsan01aapxen01,ip=10.0.1.34,user=backupadmin,ver=1,rw,credentials=/root/smbcreds,pass=********

Ubuntu Networking :: Deleting Files Off A Samba Share From A Windows Box?

May 17, 2011

I'm trying to make my music directory, located on my Ubuntu box, available to all the windows clients (Windows 7, to be specific) located around the apartment. It seems to work fine, I can see and read from the shares from my windows box, but deleting files doesn't work, I just get a permission denied.I've tried being as lenient as I can in the smb.conf, as well as setting 777 on the affected files, nothing changes. I've read, from my various googling, that the octal file permissions aren't as important as the samba permissions. Okay fine, but how do I tell samba to ignore permissions and let everyone delete files? I've read that samba works with samba users, but again, I don't care about users, I just want a global share that anyone can connect to and read (and delete) files.

Here's my smb.conf file: http:[url]...As you can see, I've played around a bit with options, but I just can't seem to get anything to work.

CentOS 5 Networking :: Samba Share Not Accessible From Windows Machine?

Feb 13, 2010

I have Linux installed on one machine with samba running and a second machine running XP. They are going through my router and I am using the same username/passwords for both machines and I have even gone to the point of allowing access to everyone for the share I created and the worgroup in samba is MSHOME just like my XP machine. When I view (or search) my workgroup computers my Linux machine shows up and so do the shares I created but when I try to open them I just get a message that permission is denied and I may not have permission to use this resource. I even tried setting access to the shared folder to 777 but still I can't open this share. Has anyone got any idea of why this is?

Ubuntu :: Share NTFS External Hard Drive?

I've been searching for a way to do this with no luck. I've got a 1TB external hard drive I used to share over the network from my Windows desktop -- which is now a Ubuntu desktop.I've tried setting it up as a samba share, and the closest I've gotten is mount error(12): Cannot allocate memory. I've tried the suggestions (editing /etc/security/limits.conf), and that removed the warning I got from testparms but didn't fix the mounting on my mythtv box.

General :: Cannot See Files On A Samba Share...

Mar 19, 2010

Ok, this is a complicated one, and possibly not entirely a linux question, but here goes-

I have a Synology server, set to backup to an external USB disk. As I understand it this disk is formatted as ext3.

The server recently crashed, so I need to get the data off the USB disk.

Weird thing 1: if I used an ext3 reader for Windows, then I can only see directories on the USB disk, no files. Yet if I mount it back on the (now crashed, but still just about bootable) Synology, then I can see all the files just fine.

Since I can see the files on Synology I figure the Windows ext3 reader is faulty. So I copy all the files to a spanky new QNAP NAS. Telnetting into the NAS I can see everything is present and correct and all the data is there. Great!

Weird thing 2: If I try to access the data via a Samba share, I can't see any of the files. Only directories!

Weird thing 3: I tried to make it all completely open by chown to my user and the "everyone" group, and then chmod uga+rxw *. This made no difference.

Weird thing 4: If I select "show hidden operating system files" in Windows then all the files appear.

Are there some weird "extra" permissions that Synology are using? If so how can I get rid of them? Anybody have an idea what is going on?

My worst case is I'll have to boot the Synology back up and copy the files via that, but I'd like to know whats going on. Oh and black mark to Synology here for making a backup that is hard to use on anything but the original system.

Thanks!

Server :: Samba Share Not Showing Any Files

Nov 3, 2009

I have recently installed Fedora F11 with a Samba server. The smb.conf seems fine but I cannot see any of the files in the share from a Windows machine. I am probably missing something unbelievably simple but driving me nuts!

I can see the machine and share from windows

When logged in as the user fred I can see all the files in Linux - most are owed by fred.

smbuser:
Code:
# x_name = SMB_name1 SMB_name2 ...
root = administrator admin
nobody = guest pcguest smbguest
fred = fred
smb.conf:
Code:
[global]
workgroup = Workgroup
server string = Samba Server Version %v

netbios name = MachineName

hosts allow = 127. 192.168.0.
.........
[Docs]
comment = Main Documents
path = /mnt/documents
read only = no
browseable = yes
valid users = fred
.........
The other thing I find a bit odd is that
Code:
service smb restart
does not effect the way that the windows machine sees Samba. It appears that you need a full restart to get the changes to show properly.

Thanks,

Michael

CentOS 5 Server :: Can't Access Samba DFS Share
