General :: Permission Denied When Accessing VirtualBox Shared Folder When Member Of The Vboxsf Group
Jul 7, 2011
I'm running Ubuntu 11.04 (guest) on Windows 7 (host) with the guest additions installed. I have an auto-mount folder that maps to my D: drive on the host which I can access using sudo ls /media/sf_D_DRIVE - however, even when my user (ross) is a member of the vboxsf group I get a permission denied error when attempting to explore it. I have restarted since adding my user to the vboxsf group.
This should work because I am a member of the group (which has rwx rights), so why doesn't it?
ross@panther:~$ ls -l /media
drwxrwx--- 1 root vboxsf 8192 2011-07-03 22:24 sf_D_DRIVE
ross@panther:~$ ls -l /media/sf_D_DRIVE/
ls: cannot open directory /media/sf_D_DRIVE/: Permission denied
I'm having an odd problem (although I'm probably missing something obvious to a non-semi-newbie):I have a directory used for samba shares which is owned by user fred, a system user which the windows clients on my network authenticate with to access the shares. I, roger, want to access the directories without having to put my 'sudo boots' on every time, so I made the directory group users and added roger to that group, and changed the file/folder modes from 0755 to 0775.However I still do not have write permissions inside the directory; I still seem to be considered 'other' and hence only have read and execute.
I have virtualbox installed, and arch set up as the guest OS now i have made my home folder shared folder with the guest OS but at first my arch couldnt read my home folder.i realized the permission setting for the home folder is set as rwx to myself, and nothing to everyone else.so i chmod -R 755 to everything and that seemed to have solved the problem now i want to make my home folder readonly to my guest OS. do i just do chmod -R 744 to my home folder? i already messed up something when i set 644 to everything in my home folder, as my dropbox stopped working so im afraid of something like that happening to me again, otherwise i d love to experiment
another question is, are .so files supposed to be executable? I googled it, and it seems they dont have to be.But my dropbox stopped working after the .so files in /home/myhomefolder/.dropbox got assigned 644 D:
I have a group (GROUP) with a number of users. I recently added a new user (NEW). NEW is able to read but not write group files, whereas all the other users in the group can read and write to the group files. The permissions for the group files indicate that all members of group should have write permission -rwxrwxr-x
/etc/group indicates that NEW is a member of GROUP ... GROUP:x:501:GROUP,OLD,OLD2,OLD3,OLD4,....,NEW
Don't know if it matters, but both OLD and NEW write to the GROUP files over an internet connection. why NEW can't write to GROUP files? Is there a maximum number of members in a group that I might have exceeded?
Hi I am a complete newbie I have installed ubuntu 10.04 I have sorted problem with Mobile broadband, but having problems opening root folder I get a permission denied not the owner I have admin privalage as far as I am aware I was following something I read using terminal but kept getting a message saying something about the root I opened the file manager found root folder but still denied access. how I get access same is also true for lost&found folder but have to admit i dont know what that folder is.
I have a similar question: How to make a share folder of virtualbox if I have installed linux Ubuntu 10.10 in virtualbox machine virtualbox is my guest machine and Linux Mint is my host machine. I have installed VirtualBox OSE in Linux Mint and I have installed Windows XP/7, made a sharing folder from guest machine Windows XP/7. My host machine is Linux Mint/Ubuntu, I mean it is on my PC. How to make a share folder in virtual machine linux ubuntu 10.10 LTS in virtualbox OSE to host machine Linux Mint 11 Katya?
I've just recently started learning shell scripting and I've been working on a basic csh script, but I've been having a few problems. Here's the script
Code: #!/bin/csh echo Enter a file name $< = FILE ##Name of file echo enter a size (in kilobytes) to monitor SIZETOMON = $< ##Size value that's input by user du -k $FILE = $SIZE ##Size of the file that the user wishes to monitor while (1) if $SIZE > $SIZETOMON then echo ALERT: File size is greater than $SIZETOMON end
And here's the output Code: /home/lucer/foo.txt: Permission denied. Badly placed ()'s.
I'm not really sure what the issue is with the "badly placed ()'s" or why it won't let me access files that I can access with the same shell when it's not in a script.
I'm mounting a shared folder in an arch linux guest on a windows 7 host in Virtual Box. The shared folder's filesystem is ext3 and is mounted in windows 7 with Ext2Fsd. I mount the shared folder at boot with this fstab:
I have Ubuntu server with Apache 2, PHP, and various DBMSs running in VirtualBox on my Mac host for my web development work. To easily create/edit the files I'm working on, I mounted a directory from my Mac host via the VirtualBox shared directory feature to /var/www/. Every file I create on my Mac host has the following permissions on the on the Server: -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 6 2011-07-30 01:27 test.The problem is that most PHPscripts/frameworks/etc.need write access to some files.It is extremely annoying to have to chmod every new file/directory that needs write access.Is there a way to set the correct permissions for the files/directories automatically?
I am trying to use VirtualBox which worked just a week ago (I haven't changed anything with it) but now it fails. When I try to start it (from the command line) with /usr/bin/VirtualBox, as a regular user, it fails.
I have a shared directory on another machine but I can't get it to mount as a samba share. The permission denied doesn't say where/which permission is denied. Is it on the remote on on the local machine? The remote has sharing enabled for the shareddocs directory and after I have mkdir'ed the local mount point I open it's permissions too. The verbose response from mount.cfis looks like this:
mount.cifs kernel mount options: unc=//192.168.1.102shareddocs,domain=WORKGROUP,ver=1,rw ,username=clive,,,,,,,,,,,ip=192.168.1.102,pass=** ****** mount error(13): Permission denied Refer to the mount.cifs( manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs)
I've installed slax6 onto an ext3 partition and setup a users account, i've also just managed to mount some virtualbox shared folders which are working and i can access them fine. The problem is I cannot seem to give limited user accounts access to them. root can access them no problem! but right clicking and changing the permissions do nothing, because once I click apply, reopen the menu, the changes have reverted. I've tried chmod'ing them.. chmod o=rwx /mnt/folder I used 'o' because I can't seem to change the group permission for the folder. The shared folder I am mounting is formatted in NTFS and the other in ext3, I can't change the permissions of either.
I have a strange problem I ssh to a remote server using the username "madel" and it gives me a strange error:
Last login: Wed Sep 8 18:17:51 2010 from greece.doe.carleton.ca Could not chdir to home directory /home/madel: Permission denied grep: /home/madel/.bashrc: Permission denied Preparing your .bashrc for Linux
I am running ubuntu using VirtualBox on a Macbook Pro. I wanted to share my documents folder on the Mac in the virtual machine. I had no issues creating/mounting the share folder on ubuntu. However the file permissions for the shared folder are owned by root.
I have a Linux Box running Fedora 13, it has Samba installed, and I have configured it, I also have a Windoze 7 PC, I want to be able to access the Windoze PC's files from my Linux Box, and vice versa, but when I try to open the Windoze PC in the network on my Linux Box, it asks for my Username and Password, I enter them, the box goes away then pops back up asking for them again... and on the Windoze PC, I find my Linux on the network, open it, it asks for my username and password, I enter them, and it lets me in, but then when I try opening my shared folder, it gives me: "You do not have permission to access \LINUX Shared Folder. Contact your network administrator to request access".
I'm using fedora8.When i mount shared folder on windows,it was mounting and i can browse the files and directories in terminal as i have full permissions on that.But,when i open the mounted directory in GNOME Environment,it was saying you did not have permissions to see the contents,every directory and file has been locked.
how to mount a shared folder (on virtual box 4.0.0) on a win 7 host onto my ubuntu 10.10 virtualbox......i know how to mount the folders manually..i want the system to mount it every time i log in........Manual mount: mount -t vboxsf D_Drive /home/asd/Desktop/Sharedi tried using /etc/fstab but i didn't know what to put in the right fields......
A bit of an oddity that I've recently run into with my storage folder in my system; it's a newly installed drive that I've set to mount at /storage. When I first tried to use it, programs that I used that attempted to write to it tossed Access Denied errors at me in their own way. Checking the permissions (at the Terminal, ls -l / | grep storage) showed that /storage was set to 'rwxrwxr--'--Owner and Group were given full read/write/execute, but Others could only read. However, my logon to my system is a member of group root. Why, then, with the above bits set, would I not be able to write to it? Changing Others permissions to rwx (and presumably rw would have worked out for me since I don't leave anything executable there) allowed me to write to it, but I don't understand why that would have been necessary. So far as I'm aware, the prior drive that was in my system--mounted at the same location--did not need this treatment.
I'm using ubuntu 11.04, I'm having some problem of ownership while sharing folder/files. to share i change the folder share option:1. Share this folder, then followed by 2.allow others to create and delete files in this folder3. guest access.Now if someone in my local network edit any file and save it, it gets locked. if some one copy their file in this folder the permission is marked as "no group" "no owner". and they get unaccessible to me. i tried doing chown <user> <folder> but it says Operation not permitted. Now how i can possibly share my folder on local network so that they can be edited by others without getting locked down , if they copy files i can able to modify them.
I have added new member "i_mymember" to inode on-disk structure in ext3_fs.h file and tried to access this in userspace program, but gives me error that "error: ï¿½struct ext3_inodeï¿½ has no member named ï¿½i_mymemberï¿½ "
I've got some folders shared on our Ubuntu machine so that everybody can access them. However, some of our users are having problems with that. The two users who are on Macbooks can barely access anything without getting a "Permission Denied" message. I've hit the directories with chmod 777 just to obliterate any lingering issues, but yet the issue persists.
