I can not manage file/folder permissions for created shares. I need get access from Win system to Linux shares. Actually I have access to its, but only to read folders and files. I tried to change permissions in create mask = 0765 and set it to 0777, but no success.
# adduser samba
# smbpasswd -a samba #set his password
# smbpasswd -e samba #activating it
2. Installing SAMBA service
Folder /media/DATA/VIDEO not browseable and cant't enter it on Win system. It located on USB External HARD Drive, and attached to Linux system.
I have a samba shared folder in my flash disk. Yesterday I installed ubuntu 11.04 and now sharing is not working any more. I do the usual procedure (that worked so far), I right click my folder > sharing options and tick "share this folder" as well as "Allow others to create and delete files in this folder" but I dont get the usual messages asking to add permissions automatically.When I try to mount my folder in another pc with linux, I get permission denied and that the folder is only readable and in another, windows cannot find the network path to my folder.My folder has about 10.000 files. asking to add permissions automaticallyI created another folder on the same flash and when I create share I get the message asking to add permissions automatically but it is not visible either. I even cant see my folder in "my places" > network, so it is not a matter of the mounting command
I'm using my Linux (SLES 10) server as a File Server at this point. I need to set File Permissions to nested folders differently to different groups. For example:
homesharedengineering* should be read only for groupA homesharedengineeringadmin should be read & write for groupB Plus read only for groupA homesharedengineeringautocad should be read & write for groupC Plus read only for groupA
I've been using Webmin and Putty to set permissions but Putty only allows me the Default Group, it won't allow me to set several groups on the same directory. Webmin seems to allow me to add multiple groups (Webmin --> Others --> File Manager --> Info & ACL tab will provide extended abilities) but when I add multiple groups, they don't seem to take effect? I'm wondering if my setup at the 'Share' level or at the hierarchy of my folder structure (unix based) needs to be set specifically?
I have mounted samba volume and I need to have write permissions for every new folder that's being created (currently, by default, on every newly created folder i have only read and execute permissions).I tried changing umask, but with no effect on mounted folder, umask changed only for local filesystem. I tried mounting with umask option, but with no effect again.I'm using ArchLinux on this machine, and I installed samba using default package manager (pacman).
i have 3 shares on my samba. i have users - user, manager and boss projects is RW to everyone reference is R to everyone RW to manager and boss Proposals is RW only to boss, no access to others However when boss logs in and creates a directory in projects share, the directory can only be renamed bu users and manager, and directory contents are read only for users and managers, even deletion / rename is denied. How can i make sure that when ever boss creates a directory in projects, it retains base folder permissions and is writable to user this is my samba file... i am using red hat 6.1 with samba 3.5.6 (i think)
I have an Ubuntu development server and a Windows 7 workstation. I use Windows Gvim to edit files on the linux server, over a samba connection.Saving files from Windows change the Linux permissions in weird way depending on the Windows app I'm using and also depending on whether there's a file extension or not.Here are some testsNo extension; Notepad2: 644 to 764
matt@mattserver ~ % ls -l testfile -rw-r--r-- 1 matt matt 0 2011-05-28 07:09 testfile --- Save from Windows Notepad2 over network ---
I have a problem with file permissions over samba. I am running a web server, and this web server needs to be able to delete a file. The php code is correct, because it works on other sites. The php code is failing when it deletes a file because it is being ran as the www-data user. And the permissions on the files that are created on the share are as follows:
ns$ ls -l -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 129628 Feb 6 08:16 20110206071748532.pdf This directory is mounted on: /var/www/files/23982dbb7a454425ce17a22bedc00776/scanned/AEC_Scans This is done with the /etc/fstab file: //192.168.58.2/Scans /var/www/files/23982dbb7a454425ce17a22bedc00776/scanned smbfs username=administrator,password=somepass
This is a interesting confusing problem.Ok I have group with 3 users.I have a folder in /home with owner as root, and group that has read/write permissions.However if a user opens up a file and saves it via samba, the owner changes to the user, and the group members only have read permissions on the file.
i have an old desktop that i have decided to use as a central point for localhost/website files. I have 2 laptops, a ubuntu and vista, and i want them both to be able to see the public_html folder on my desktop, and be able to create/update folders and files.
I have set up the samba sharing and that's working fine, but when i create folders using my laptop, they are not writeable to the desktop or other laptop because my laptop is the creator. Is there a way that I can set it so that whenever folders/files are created from either laptop, they have full permissions?
When I create a new folder on my ubuntu machine and share it with my windows 7 machine using 'net usershare add <dir> <path>', I can't get write perms in Win 7. It keeps giving me a "You need permission to perform this action'. I've chmod the folder to 777 but still no luck.
The funny thing is, it was all working fine until I tried to add a new usershare yesterday (Can't think what I've changed). I use this sharing method to share all of my development /var/www/ folders so I can work on them from my win machine.
I have had a few problems with my samba smb.conf, and it nuked and rebuilt yesterday. I'm fairly new to the Linux game, and this permissions problem has me baffled.
I am trying to set up a Samba share on one of my machines where I am the owner and a special group manages permissions for read-only access ( me:specialgroup ). If I log into the share as me, there is no problem (I have read/write privs as per usual). However, I am not able to log into the share using any of the group members (there is only one currently). That user is not able to access the share (failed to mount).
The folder (which is the share) is owned by me:specialgroup and the permissions have been forced down the folder. Samba is set to Share this folder with no guest or others write access.
I have a question regarding Samba Permissions. As the subject described, is it possible to let users read the file but can not copy the file physically? It's fine if they open and copy paste the contents but no physical copy paste and also I need to log the activity of the users. If samba will not be able to comply my needs, could you suggest some programs to meet my requirements?
I'm attempting to set up a Samba share on my lab's small server (Ubuntu Server Edition, 10.04). It looked easy enough, but the share that I set up didn't allow anyone to actually put anything on it: no uploading stuff, etc. (You can still upload files via the command line, so I implemented the unix extensions = no fix). The share is writeable and visible, and anyone can access it (according to the Samba GUI). According to the smb.conf:
The other Windows machines in the lab see the new server and its share automatically, although they can't make changes to it, like create a new folder in the share. Most of my lab uses Snow Leopard (OS X 10.6), and a few others use Windows. I can connect to the server using my MacBook either through the terminal or Finder -> Go -> Connect to server -> smb://blah.someplace.edu without problems.
I can do pretty much anything via the command line, but not through the Finder! If I want to create a new folder, it gives me an old-school error message (stupid blue face): "The operation can't be competed because you don't have the necessary permission." If I want to drag-and-drop a file from my desktop to the Share folder, I get a pop-up window (lock + blue face): "Type your password to allow Finder to make changes." If I do, then I get another pop-up: "One or more items can't be copied to "Share" because you don't have permission to read them. Do you want to copy the items you are allowed to read?"
I have a file server setup with samba integrated with swat management. The server isn't a domain controller. The file server is working well with the shares all working correctly except for one problem. I would like the users be able to manage the folder permissions from a windows PC. This can be done from a login as the root user if need be but, the key is that the system be manageable from the windows PC.
I have followed the instructions of multiple how to's but still get and error that access is denied when trying to apply permissions. I am able to search the server for users to add and the names resolve. What are the configurations that I should be looking at where the NT permissions in samba are configured. nt acl support is set to yes and any other acl settings used produce the same result.
So I am trying to setup a Samba server to share out our SAN environment to our windows clients. This is my first time playing with samba, so running into quite a few obsticals along the way.
Environment: SLES 10.3 Samba 3.0x (Original RPMs in distro)
My end goal is to allow anyone in our Active Directory environment to access the shared folders from Samba and map the File permissions to 755 and Directory to 777.First I tried just using Kerberos client and winbind and added it to the AD domain. This worked, but mapped the wrong UIDs (the standard 10000 series). Also the permissions were mapped all wrong.Then I had the great idea to use the Server for NIS on windows 2008, it makes the PDC run a NIS domain that is conjoined to AD. This really didnt work at all. I loaded the AD schema with the correct UIDs and all that good stuff, but didnt seem to take.
So how would any of you approach this?Should I keep trying the NIS config, or use Kerb and winbind? Can a box be part of a NIS domain and AD at the same time?
I have set up a computer to use as a file server using Samba. I attached a 1TB hard disk to it and had the system to mount it automatically. I have 4 user accounts which will be able to access this network share. An administrator account is called "server". I'll call them user1, user2 user4. This is the folder structure:
+-/mnt/FILES +-BACKUP backup files (accessible only to "server" user) +-MUSIC music1.mp3 (read only files for all users) music2.mp3
I don't know which groups I should create. I'm having a hard time setting file/folder permissions. And I wanted to know how to set Samba so that it won't ask for a password when accessing public/group files, but asks for it when accessing private user files.
I have a user community of about 2000 users and a samba server running on AIX that currently hosts a read-only share for the whole company.
[Released] path = /mypath guest ok = Yes
But now I have been requested to make this share available as read-only for some users and completely inaccessible to everyone else. The number of users who will have access is probably a few hundred and I expect users to be added/removed on a daily basis. Some of the users have unix logins, while others do not. Because of this, I hesitate to mess with user mapping because I would have to manage this every day, unless I do something with a script.
Can someone suggest a scheme I can use to deny everyone except for certain users without having to use user mapping?Someone here in my office suggested we use hosts allow or deny, since the users who will still have access are located on the same subnet. However, there is a distinct possibility that a small number of people on a few other subnets will need access. Is there a way I can specify hosts allow but still allow specific users from other subnets?Forgive me if this question has been asked before. I'm sure it must have been, but I am having trouble doing a search of the archives that will give me advice about this particular problem.
How can I set permissions for users within the share? Example: I have a share called Programming and some user can create folders within it most others can not, can read the documents. How do I set permissions?
From a Win 7 client, I can copy/create/delete any files on any share on the Ubuntu Samba server so long that is part of my nix file system which is all ext4.This box also has and NTFS partition on it primarily for storage. I can copy/create/delete anything on this partition form the same Win 7 client with the exception of Quickbook save files.I have scoured the web looking for anything close to this but have yet to find anything that looks similar. Not lloking for a direct answer but if there is anyone else that has issues copying specific types of files to a Samba NTFS partition.
what I am trying achieve is read/write access for my MS domain account and read-only access for everyone else. In smb.conf I have this:
map to guest = bad user usershare allow guests = yes username map = /etc/samba/smbusers
I can access this fine with my MS domain account, what I can't work out is how to give others read-only access to the same share. I guess I could create a second share for the same folder with a different name and permissions, but that seems a bit clunky and I'd have to remember to pass on a different name to the one I am using. I also tried using the Nautilus right-click "Sharing options" and then setting the folder permissions. This works fine for giving others read-only access, but loses capitalisation of the share name and doesn't seem to recognise my MS domain account as being valid.
I'm trying to set up my samba server so that all the shares are visible to everybody but that some shares can only be accessed by certain users. I have a folder Video that everybody can access without a username or password. I now want to create a share that only I can access called webserver.
This is my samba.conf Code: [global] dns proxy = No netbios name = DATABOX guest account = nobody restrict anonymous = no browseable = yes server string = server workgroup = WORKGROUP public = yes security = share
[Video] Writeable = yes Path = /media/data/Video Public = yes
[webserver] Writeable = yes Public = no User = malteser Path = /media/data/Webserver
Windows does not let me enter a username or password. I'm pretty sure this used to work.
First let me say that Lubuntu is a lightweight version of Ubuntu, so there is not much point in loading it up with unnecessary packages. If you just want to share printers on a Linux network, you don't need Samba. And if you just want a way that users can "push" files to others on a network, use Giver (+ Avahi) as this is a better option. Especially as it sorts out file permissions for you.
To enable file sharing on a Lubuntu 10.10 machine, go to Preferences > Synaptic Package Manager and add the following:- * samba * system-config-samba * gvfs-bin * gvfs-backends ...accepting any dependancies, 11 packages in total.
I suggest you re-boot now. As an initial test, go to file manager (pcmanfm) and enter:- smb://localhost You should see the local print$ folder listed.
To access folder shares remotely * open file manager (pcmanfm) * enter the IP address or computer name of the machine you wish to access e.g. smb://192.168.0.99 or smb://print-server
To share a folder:- Go to: Preferences > Samba (enter password when requested) In the Samba Configuration screen:- * File > Add Share * use Browse... to select folder to be shared * Tick "Visible" and (if required} "Writable" * In the "Access" select "Allow access to everyone" Set the Linux permissions:- * locate the folder to share in file manager * right click on the folder and select Properties > Permissions * set the required permissions, e.g. Other: Read & Write (to allow anyone full access)
I have a Samba server running on a box where I login to admin as user: FRED The Samba users are SUE JOE - Read only for specified paths (media playback access only user) SUE can read/write to any directory under the share: Media
So all that is working fine. As long as I do file operations remotely as SUE everything works remotely. How can I make it to where everything SUE does over Samba FRED automatically has permissions to edit when logged in locally (or SSH)? Also, remember, Joe needs to be able to read where specified.
Files saved on our ubuntu server via samba server are all being created/saved as read only (-rwxr--r--). The users are MAC Users who are connecting via finder.I have taken 2 steps:First I added the lines "umask 0000" to the .bashrc files in the users' home directories.Second, I have modified the /etc/samba/smb.conf file such that I set "create mask = 0000" and also "directory mask = 0000" but the files are still being created as "-rwxr--r--".
I'm having a hard time figuring out how to set permissions on my samba server and on mounting the share. I would appreciate help figuring things out. What I need to achieve is have a server share mounted on a computer and give read write access to the users of that client computer. Also permissions should be respected is a user limits access to a directory or file he creates.
What I did was replicate the users on both server and client computers and create an extra user on the server that has full access to the share both in linux and in samba, and I'm mounting the share on the client computer using that extra user from fstab. (Is this the best way to set things up or is there a better way?)
Now the issues I'm having; Whenever a user A creates a directory or file it's listed as created by user B. It turns out that the UID does not match on both computers. How do I fix that short or deleting and recreating the users in the proper order.
- Backup scripts running as root get lot permission denied errors writing to the share especially when using chown and chgroup. Could someone explain, or point me to an explanation of the logic behind permissions and mounting?
I am running Ubuntu 9.04, and wish to share a folder to be accessed without logging in via Windows Vista. If I set up the share through the nautilus right-click menu and enable "Guest Account", the share is inaccessible. The folder shows up, but it fails to mount. Vista says that it can see the computer, but not the shared folder.
The folder is
The only way I can get it to work is if I change the permissions of the folder /home/william to allow Others to access files.
I have a folder in a Samba shared drive which I've done the following with (in Unix):
1. Changed owner to Administrator. 2. Changed group owner to Domain Users. 3. Granted 700 (drwx------) permissions 4. Connected to Windows server via remote desktop 5. Mapped the Samba network drive as administrator 6. Right clicked on the folder > properties > security tab > advanced, and added one person (let's call him Joe) who has rwx access on that folder and everything in it. (along with administrator) 7. Went back to check Unix permissions on the folder and found that they had changed from drwx to drwxrwx+. Same goes for everything inside it. 8. Checked the ACL.
In my work I want to build up a Linux based network, where windows and linux clients are going to share a Thecus network drive.Each client will have specific permissions for accessing the samba shares. I have installed Ubuntu SRV 10.4 with gui and webmin.
