i have a windows xp machine with filesharing enabled and the shares set up and ready to go i have a laptop on which i did a fresh install of fedora 15 with samba and all the necessary packages to make the fedora machine a samba client to the windows machine.
my problem is that when i go into nautilus and click on the network tab it shows nothing not one single computer...the fedora machine doesnt even show up.....i have done all the tests i can think of and confirmed that the smb service is running, the nmb service is running, samba is allowed thru the firewall and all the computers are in the same workgroup..yet neither one can see each other even more frustrating is when i go to mount a windows share thru the terminal it shows a successful mount (as i type in the command hit enter and recieve no errors) BUT when i go into the mount directory and open the new directory i made for the samba share it shows nothing there not even when i go into the windows machine and add a file to the shared folder...PLUS for some strange reason the /mnt directory already had two empty files called "home" and "boot" already in it i have no clue what thats about but ok, then on the windows side i go into "network places" and click on "show workgroup computers" and the windows machine will show up but not the fedora machine.
these are the commands i have used to install and get samba working- "yum install samba system-config-samba samba-client cifs-utils" "service smb start" anyway until i can figure this out i have decided to start from scratch and erase samba from the machine completely and i am hoping that maybe some one can read all this and come up with some ideas...maybe there is just something i forgot when i was setting this up yesterday its possible i just went to fast and skipped a step again all i want is the fedora 15 machine to just be a samba client with read/write priviledeges
I have an HP GL380 with an MSA20 connected for storage space, we use it as an nas unit. The system is SLES 10. We use both NFS and SMB for file sharing, no special users and so. We are 8-10 users of the machine. We store both large and small files such at thumbnails and disk images.
Now, my problem. I�d like to give more priority for reading files on the server, so a user can look at pictures without problem, and if another user is writing an image file of an disk (10-1000 GB) this writing process should get less priority. The most important is always reading files, to get the job done.
I'm trying to configure a per user samba login for full access to the user's home directory.Mounting the shared directory works flawless when mounting from Windows. I can read, write, create without problems. However, when mounting from Linux the shared space is readonly.
I have 4 machines; all multiboot. I want each machine to have full rw access to file shares on each other machine, AND, full rw access to the other partitions on the same machine home folder for UNbooted OS's. I imagine Samba will NOT handle all these configurations? What else do I have to do, so that, for example, if I have 2 machines on, and I boot up a third machine in another room, it will auto mount the other 2 machines' shares, and it export it's own shares to the other 2 machines? I want also each machine to have full rw access to shares on the UNbooted partitions of each machine.
I've been reading for a while about samba but I haven't found a solution to my problem yet.I'd like to know if, the configuration I have in mind, is possible at all ("security = user" is what I'm using now).I want a directory to be: 1) read only for guests and some UNIX users; 2) write for some other UNIX users.
The advantage of this configuration would be that every single user in my LAN (with or without a UNIX account) would be able to read the content of the shared directory Music and I (UNIX user andrea) could manage the folder directly trough samba preserving the correct owner/group and permissions on the new files/folder created.
Notes about my configuration above: 1) as it is now every user gets authenticated by samba as nobody so even I (andrea) cannot write in it; 2) commenting out the line "guest ok = yes" I can authenticate as "andrea" and write in it but guest access is not possible any longer.
I have a networked raid drive. Thecus 2100. Its running linux, and includes samba sharing. On that I have a folder shared. I can connect to and read and write from nautilus. No problems. However, I can't use other apps through that method. Its not really "mounting" that drive in the sense you'd normally think of (afaik).
If I try to mount the folder, no matter how I have tried so far (-t cifs, smbmount, etc), I can navigate the folders, but if I try to read any file I get a permission error. Looking at the permissions with 'ls -l', everything looks OK. The weird thing is, I can write a file, then read that file back as long as its the same session.
Just now I tried 'smbclient' with no special arguments. Just the server and path url. It asked for my password. Once I was in, I had no trouble getting files. I had a thread about this a while back and there were several links and all sorts of command line options to try, which I did, with no different outcome. I think its got to be something much simpler and more obvious. smbclient and nautilus seem to have no trouble. Anybody know what they're doing differently?
I Have Configure Samba server in Centos, I need give permission like for some user(5User) can able to read and write the particular folder, and again i need give some another user(6user) can only read permission for same folder.
I have been struggling to get Linux on my main business computer. These two programs really trip me up as I can not really find alternatives to them[URL].. are the programs, I have found an online business plan program called planhq.com that can kind of replace Business plan pro, but I still need better financials. Neither program works under WINE at all.
Ive managed to install samba, I've shared a folder. I can access from a Windows 7 machine via \ubuntupublic. I can put files in the folder form the ubuntu machine and edit them on the windows box. I can put files in the folder/share from the Windows box but then I cannot edit them on the Ubuntu machine (they are read only and have a "Lock" over them). I can fix this by going to the properties of the file/folder in Windows and manually assigning "Everybody" full control (then the lock disappears and all is well.) I want read/write access to all the folders contents from both machines all the time (security is NOT a concern I WANT the permissions wide open) what am I doing wrong?
I am working for a community where several people are engaged for 4 different development projects. we are planning to have a samba server to store our data.Now the problem is that I have created a share in which @groupa, @groupb and @groupc are allowed to read and write. But three of the members of @groupb are only allowed to for read permission only.
I can't see any option for recursive directories in nfs in fedora 13.
This is my set-up:
save and exit.
When i mount the directory /media/Data from another Fedora 13 box i don't have read and write permissions for each and every file. The -R recursive option would be handy unfortunately this option is unavailable. The red hat docs have not been helpful in this respect.
The mounted partition is of the ext3 type. With the nfs-3g type i don't have any issue however most of my directories/partitions are of the ext3 type so i need get it sorted.
I changed my user name id number to the same number on all boxes thus giving me write access. There must be a better solution than this.
I installed SAMBA and SWAT, latest versions. What I want to accomplish is to give Windows users unlimited read/write access to the entire filesystem, eg. (/). Barring that, I'd like to at least be able to configure full access to individual directories.And by "unlimited", I mean being able to edit and delete everything that would be normally accessible only by the root user. I want to grant the Windows users of the shares access as if they were root users.
I have Fedora 8 and we just switched over from a Windows "File Server" to Windows Server 2008 (10.1.1.17). I updated my fstab file and now when I go onto the Windows folders, I can list and read files, even save them, but new files are always read only.
fstab file (some, without the asterisks): //10.1.1.17/USERS/Jeff/fs /home/mriuser/Desktop/fs cifs rw,username=jsadino,password=**** 0 0
I've tried ntfs-3g, auto, ntfs, smb, some umask combinations, changing ownerships, changing permissions, everything I could think of, but still can't modify new files.
[root@localhost tmp10]# mkdir tmp2 [root@localhost tmp10]# cd tmp2 [root@localhost tmp2]# touch tmp [root@localhost tmp2]# ls -l
After 10 minutes of trying to mount my zune, I finally got it, only to open rhythem box to find that I can't view the music on it, or write new music to it. (It does have music on it, nearly 30 gigs of music, its also assigned to my windows computer that I dont use anymore). Sorry for the file being a jpe, but the fedora forums seem to hate high resolution, full desktop, PNG screenshots, so I edited it down and made it a jpe.
I am developing a program that uses libusb-1.0 on a FC14 x64 system. I solved the compile and link issues, but I now have a problem with user privileges when I try to get device handles. The problem appears to be in the mounting of the usbfs. Is the an accepted fix to giving users read/write privileges for all usb devices?
On opening nautilus,it shows the XP ad Fedora partitions.Clicking on them mounts the partition.However,XP partitions are mounted in Read/write mode,whereas Fedora partition is mounted only in Read mode.What changes should i need to make in /etc/fstab to enable Read/Write access to Fedora partition as well?
I am new to linux at driver level. I want to read/write at specified memory location in microSD card in linux. I do not want to used SD card with any file system. How to do that. My linux distribution is Fedora13.
I used to be able to write to my SD memory card but just recently it is being automatically mounted as read-only. I checked the read-only tab and tried to set it to the lock position, and to the unlock position. Neither position makes a difference. It was working normally a few days ago. I also tried changing the permission using su
ls -lt gives the following result drwxr-xr-x 4 col root 16384 1970-01-01 01:00 CANON_DC chmod chgrp and chown in su mode don't change anything either.
I tried mounting a different 1GB SD card and it works perfectly. I noticed that when I mount this card I get a window asking me what I want to do, but I don't get this on the other card. It must some kind of setting related to the unwriteable card.
Anybody know how to make an ext3 or 4 partition start up at boot with only the owner and its group having read and write access permissions.I don't want 'others' to have folder access. This is what i have done. / etc/fstab:/dev/sdb5/media/Data ext4 owner 1 2 The folder starts on the boot since it has been allocated a folder as u can see. Next i changed the the ownership and the group ownership of the folder:chown johnny:johnny /media/DataThe problem is that other users can few my partition since 'others' have read access. How do i change that to zero access?
I am trying to setup my webserver and I am trying to make a website to run under suexec but somehow I cannot start my apache it directly fails and SELinux is giving me errors and don't really know what to do with it, it is giving me some command to type but not sure if this will make my server less secure. The SELinux error is as follow:
Code: Summary: SELinux prevented httpd reading and writing access to http files.
Detailed Description: SELinux prevented httpd reading and writing access to http files. Ordinarily httpd is allowed full access to all files labeled with http file context. This machine has a tightened security policy with the httpd_unified turned off, this requires explicit labeling of all files. If a file is a cgi script it needs to be labeled with httpd_TYPE_script_exec_t in order to be executed. If it is read-only content, it needs to be labeled httpd_TYPE_content_t, it is writable content. it needs to be labeled httpd_TYPE_script_rw_t or httpd_TYPE_script_ra_t. You can use the chcon command to change these contexts. Please refer to the man page "man httpd_selinux" or FAQ [URL] "TYPE" refers to one of "sys", "user" or "staff" or potentially other script types.
Allowing Access: Changing the "httpd_unified" boolean to true will allow this access: "setsebool -P httpd_unified=1"
Fix Command: setsebool -P httpd_unified=1
I will write down how I did setup my server so maybe you can see a mistake I did. First I changed my Apache httpd.conf I added the following to it: Code: NameVirtualHost 192.168.1.2:80 <VirtualHost 192.168.1.2:80> ServerName localhost DocumentRoot /var/www/html DirectoryIndex index.html index.html index.shtml index.php </VirtualHost>
Then I created the username "ulyaoth" with the group "ulyaoth" as I specified with my suexec, then I created all the directories as specified in my httpd.conf and "chown ulyaoth:ulyaoth (dirname)" them to the right group and username.
I have a Samba server running in my Lan (mainly for file and print service). This server will act as a PDC (don't ask why...). I have a question: Under a share I can use the "read list" and "write list" options with groups (eg @users). Is that group a Linux or Samba group? If it's the later, am I forced to use the net groupmap command, or it is sufficient to have a group name in the /etc/group file? Should I add samba/linux users to that group (with net rpc) or is sufficient to have the group membership set in the linux?
I had a F14 samba server working flawlessly now for a quite time. Unexpectedly about a month ago the write speed slowed down around 64kbit/s and that's really slow. I haven't changed any configs, only updated the server. I've troubleshooted this from many angles: -It is not a network issue because sftp writes are good. -It is not a RAID1 issue because write speed from another directory (locally) are good. So basically samba is the only thing left.
Here's example from smb.conf: [MyShare] comment = My share path = /mnt/RAID_share writeable = yes browseable = yes writelist = +smbuser

I want my samba to keep my windows attributes exactly what the user setted in windows I mean if it has read only file in win box and copy it to samba share ,samba keep it read only and same for other attributes but it does not do it now with my configuration:Quote:
[global] workgroup = DOMAIN server string = File Server
