Fedora Networking :: Weird Results: Mounting The Home Directory?

Jun 4, 2010

i am getting weird results after mounting the /home directory from the server. seems like the client sees the ldapuser and it's directory from the server side.. /home/ldapuser. but it's pulling the "blank" user as it's permission. blank is the actual user on the client side. any ideas why?

server side:
[root@localhost ~]# showmount -e
Export list for localhost.localdomain:

CentOS 5 Networking :: Mounting Home Directory On NFS Partition

Aug 27, 2009

I have attached a 2 TB LUN to the HP Blade Server running CentOS 5.3 via a Qlogic HBA. To provide the cluster users with sufficient storage areaa, I want to move only the home directory from the default partitioning schema to the attached storage and leave the remaining partitions on the main harddrive of the server. So, having copied user directories & files to the new location, i.e.,
/cluster/home2 on the new storage partition, what modification(s) should I make on the server?
/export/home is the default location for the users.
/cluster/home2 is NFS shared directory serving as the new home location for the users.

Fedora :: Mounting A Weird Filesystem?

Nov 23, 2009

Following a slight dose of vandalism, I have invested in a security camera system.It is basically a hard drive in a box which connects to a couple of cameras.There is also a USB lead to connect it to a PC, and some software that enables Windows to look at the recordings (I can't get it to work on WINE).I was hoping to simply bypass that, and just look at the drive directly, but it seems from here that the disk "doesn't contain a valid partition table".Obviously, the box thinks it has a valid partition table, else it would not work.I was quite surprised: I had assumed the box would have some kind of cut down Linux based system, but if that were the case, you would expect it to use a recognisable filesystem.

General :: Testing Home Directory Scripts By Setting $HOME To The Location Of The Test Directory

Apr 20, 2010

I have an interdependent collection of scripts in my ~/bin directory as well as a developed ~/.vim directory and some other libraries and such in other subdirectories. I've been versioning all of this using git, and have realized that it would be potentially very easy and useful to do development and testing of new and existing scripts, vim plugins, etc. using a cloned repo, and then pull the working code into my actual home directory with a merge.

The easiest way to do this would seem to be to just change & export $HOME, eg

cd ~/testing; git clone ~ home
export HOME=~/testing/home
cd ~
screen -S testing-home
# start vim, write/revise plugins, edit scripts, etc.
# test revisions

However since I've never tried this before I'm concerned that some programs, environment variables, etc., may end up using my actual home directory instead of the exported one. Is this a viable strategy? Are there just a few outliers that I should be careful about?

Ubuntu Networking :: Mounting Home Dir On Another Machine?

Jul 21, 2011

I'm running Kubuntu 11.04 .I want to mount my home dir on another machine and log in to the remote machine with the same username and home dir. The problem is that the files on the mounted dir belong to userid 99 (nobody). For example:

on the local machine:


[erezz@erez-lx:~]$ ls -ln ~/.bashrc
-rw-r--r-- 1 1000 1000 1644 2011-07-20 13:56 /home/erezz/.bashrc

on the remote machine:


[erezz@remote_machine:~]$ ls -ln ~/.bashrc
-rw-r--r-- 1 99 99 1644 Jul 20 13:56 /home/erezz/.bashrc

Here's what I did (and worked great for me in Kubuntu 10.04):

local machine:


/home/erezz/ *(rw,insecure,sync,all_squash,anonuid=1000,anongid=1000)
(also tried /home/erezz/ *(rw,insecure,sync,root_squash))

Ubuntu Networking :: Not Mounting Directory With Winbind?

Jan 18, 2011

I am trying to get a ubuntu machine (client) onto a windows active directory (domain) this i have done and you can login using winbind to the client desktop no problems however i dont want the domain users' home directories on the client machine so i have set up a ubuntu server (samba) to hold the home directories now so far i have been able to set up a share which both windows and linux can read and write to with no passwords needed, and if i have modified the /etc/fstab file on the client to mount the samba share on startup however if i login as a domain user it fails to create a home directory on the share with the following error:

"/mnt/home/admin2" does not exist

now the main question is this in fstab i have used a cred file stored in /usr/share/.smbcred which should be accessible by all users right? i know i can put the creds into the fstab file but i can't find how and it is just failing to mount when i try so if you know how i will try that, also does fstab run before or after the home directory is created as if it runs after then the cred file is working but the home directory is looking at a location which hasnt been mounted yet or if fstab runs before then the location is not mounting right (hoping for second one )

Ubuntu Networking :: Mounting The Remote Directory Remotely?

Jul 15, 2010

I have a computer (C1) to which I can connect through the Internet (ssh, for instance) (it has a static ip and though it is sitting behind a router, the appropriate ports are all forwarded). I have another computer (C2) that doesn't have a fixed ip address and sits behind a router that I cannot fiddle with (so no port forwarding here). I would like to know if there is any way to connect from C2 to C1 such that a directory on C2 would be mounted on C1.

Networking :: Mounting Unique Filesystem Or Directory By Network Booted Host?

Apr 6, 2010

I have a number of diskless hosts which are to bootth PXE and mount their root filesystem on an NFS share. Most of the NFS share will be common to to all of the diskless hosts. No problem with that part.I also need part of the NFS shared filesystem to be unique to each individual host. The only difference between the hosts is the ethernet MAC. I use it in the DHCP server to key a specific unique IP to each host. I would like to be able to use either the MAC, or the IP, or any other unique identifier that can be derived very early in the boot process to access a filesystem or directory that is unique to each diskless host.

I need/want to do this because I need/want to isolate all of the system maintenance to one small part of the boot host. Modifying the hardware (these are VME CPUs) in any way is not an option; they must be field swappable, with all maintenance isolated to the boot host(s).I know I could run ifconfig and parse its output to derive an IP &/or MAC, but that seems a bit kludgey and fragile. The DHCP server is presently assigning IPs. I know I can arrange to pass a unique option value via the DHCP server, but don't know if or how this can be retrieved on the diskless nodes. I am presently passing the 'root=' kernel argument from the bootloader, but I don't think there is any way to pass other filesystem information using that mechanism.

I know I can pass some kernel arguments from the bootloader, but there doesn't seem to be any generic message that can be retrieved in userspace as part of the boot process. I've scanned around in the /proc filesystem, looking for the IP or anything else that seems to uniquely identify the host, but don't see anything there, either.The init process has not yet been cast in stone, but is very likely to be a BusyBox built-in

Ubuntu Networking :: Root Level Parent Directory - Mounting Windows Share?

Mar 26, 2010

I've mucked through and figured out how to mount a windows share. I can access the folders I was looking for, but the windows share was not what I thought it would be. I was looking for the specific shared folder. Instead I got a root level parent directory that included the folder I wanted, and a couple others.

smbclient -L <ipaddress> gives me a parent directory on the root

First question: Can I mount a specific folder within a share?
Second question: Could somebody define share? I thought it was the specific shared folder, but that doesn't seem to be the case.

Networking :: NFS User Home Directory?

Jan 16, 2011

iam learning to setup a NFS server with fedora14. I have gone through couple of materials for this topic. I have a doubt. Say if i have user1 till user5 on my NFS server with their home directory under the /home and the /home directory is shared. If user1 logs into a client machine then will he be able to see home folders for the other users or just his own home folder. Because in the /etc/exports file there was an option saying "subtree" and according to my understanding this means that the subdirectories under /home will also be shared. Does that mean all the users should be able to see all other users home directory and its contents but not read/write?? Correct me if iam wrong.

Fedora Servers :: Mounting NFS Share On Newly Created Directory Failed

Mar 12, 2010

Running NFS on Fedora 10. Exports fine. I tested it locally. I tested the NFS configuration by trying to access the exported directory from my local machine, before testing it from a remote machine. While logged in as root, I created a new directory "/mnt/nfstest".

Then I mounted the NFS share at the new directory I created:
[root@eric root]# mount -t nfs localhost:/mnt/nfs /mnt/nfstest

When I tried to mount on the remote client:
[root@frank root]# mount -t nfs eric:/mnt/nfs /mnt/nfstest

After a while I got:
# mount eric:/mnt/nfs /mnt/nfstest
mount.nfs: mount system call failed

I tried strace but wasn't sure what I was looking for, but I've attached the results as a .odt file.

Fedora :: F14: Cannot Enter Home Directory Using /

Nov 24, 2010

I've installed F14 to replace another distribution on my PC. I chose to use KDE. I used to have a separate partition for my user home to be mounted as /home. During the installation I instructed the installer to do so (without formatting of course). At the first boot I created a use with the very same name as I used to have. I got the warning about the home being already there and I said "yes, convert that ownership and selinux stuff so I can use that very directory as my home". At the graphical login I get a dialog saying I cannot enter my home and that it will use / instead. Of course the login process fails. If I switch to the character console (CTRL-ALT-F2) and do a login I actually get the very same error. But, if I hit "cd" (change directory to $HOME), then I get in the proper directory.

Update 1. I guessed it was a SELinux problem. And I manually disabled it into /etc/selinux/config. Now I'd like to fix this issue, because I'd like to have SELinux working.
