Server :: Possible To Create User Profil In Samba With Rights To Change Network Settings
Nov 24, 2010
I want to set samba to act as domain controller PDC.Is it possible to create user profil in samba with rights to change network settings but not install software, create users.Something like network admin that is like normal user but he is able change network settings.
I have configured Ldap Server in CentOS 5.4 & it's working fine, the problem is when I create a ldapuser from server the user can login in client machine but the user has no rights to change the password. How to rectify this by using commands.
I am trying to implement a NAS running Debian to replace the Windows 2003 file server.We implemented the system and we integrated it with the active directory. Is it possible to manage the access rights using windows tools and get the same amount of detail(not the right word) on access.As an example, we have the following folder structure:
Teams&Projects All users list, admins full Team1 All users list, admins full, some users modify Project1 All users no access, admins full, some modify, some list
I have read some articles on the internet that this is possible but I do not have enough information to implement this.
Is it possible to give user only FTP access / browsing rights for certain directory within /srv/www/htdocs and prevent same user to browse all other directories, even user's /home directory on that server?
Using Dolphin in Super-User mode, I can copy files and directories from the share to itself with no errors. Using Dolphin in Normal-user mode. I get the failure "Could not change permissions for...". The file is copied, but its owner,timestamp and permissions are wrong. If a subdirectory is involved, the copy aborts.
Using Windows XP I can copy files and directories from the share to itself with no errors.
Testing: If I mount with uid and gid, then my normal user can not access the share. mount.cifs //10.x.x.x/Data /home/stevej/Synology/Data/ --verbose -o user=stevej uid=stevej gid=users
Synology DS211 - There are 2 users on it. One of which is stevej and the other is julie. Rights RWX are applied to the users and the group called users. All files have stevej as the owner and users as the group with RWX Opensuse 11.4 - There are 2 pc's. One is run as stevej. The other pc runs as julie Windows 2000 - Runs as stevej and maps to the share as stevej.
Works as expected Windows XP - Runs as julie and maps the the share as julie. Works as expected Ultimately, I want the shares to automount at boot, or login and give the user full access. I have been to Swerdna's page and done as much as I can, but still no luck.
Continuing with my assigned task of migrating the company's PCs to GNU/Linux (openSUSE as server for GNU/Linux clients) I managed to set up a DC with roaming profiles for the few remaining Windows users, user validation and login for the openSUSE boxes and a few network shares with different rights. I know there are no roaming profiles for GNU/Linux and I can live with that but I would like to specify wich users/groups would have their home directories saved locally (notebook users) and which will save them on the Samba server.
By default home directories are saved locally but somehow Samba creates a minimal home directory for each user under /home in the Samba server. How can I tell the client box to use that directory? and how can I set up the few notebook users to save it on their disks? Maybe using the options under Yast > Security... > Users and groups management > Users (LDAP Users filter) > and then select the user and use the "Manage Samba account parameters" plug-in for specifying the different paths cant achieve this.
I am trying to set up a simple home file-server for media and backups, using an old Atom board I had lying around and 1GB memory, so I don't want a full desktop. All goes well with installing server 10.10, using LVM for my data disk. However, I wanted some GUI tools since I am not familiar with the CLI, so I installed gdm, xorg, and gnome-core as suggested in some threads and forums.So far so good, it boots into the Gnome desktop, but I can't get sudo access with anything (synaptic, gkedit, etc.) - always "incorrect password". I am fine from the console; I reset my user password, no luck; I set up another admin user, and that also works in console but not the desktop.I have no idea where to go next and can't find anything that works in the forum
I'm having a bit of a problem after joining Ubuntu 9.04 to my company's Windows Domain. I can log in and use sudo just fine but I don't have access to certain things in my menu (i.e. "Add/Remove Software") and I can't open the User Manager. I manually edited the /etc/group file as root and added my username (username@domain) to the appropriate groups but still no luck.
I want to add 50 new users, not on the server yet I want to add them all to group Accounting - with 1 option, not user by user I want to setup a default password for them all, and have it say something like 'You must now change password or no access will be permitted' Any other options I also want to do once, not for each user?
This netbook only has a user with non-administrative privs on it and root user but I do not have root's password.Is there a way that I can create a new administrative user of change the current user's group so that it can do sudo commands or have more privs?
I need to know is there any way to record or tracking or make logging if when user samba delete files or folders i can know that, cause sometimeon samba server some users complain they lost files, though i have daily backup and i can restore their files, i just want to know if or maybe some other users in one group accidentally move or delete the files.
Take a physical user FRED. FRED is a linux user ( known by linux on his laptop ) FRED is a Samba user ( Known by samba on the samba pdc server ) When he logs locally (with username/password) on its standalone laptop (with no network), he is known as FRED:user. He access his data in /home/FRED/. When he logs through samba (with username/password) on the domain MY_DOM, he is known as MY_DOMFRED:MY_DOMdomain user. He access his data in /home/MY_DOM/FRED/. ) Is it possible that the human FRED has only one repository and have full access to its repository regardless of how it was connected. If yes, how to do it
2) If not, Is it possible that the human FRED has full access to /home/FRED/.............. and /home/MY_DOM/FRED/.
When i try to create a new samba user the computer locks up and i get this message. can someone help me out. TB08997608 connection.py:630:call_blockingBusException: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.Spawn.ChildExited: Launch helper exited with unknown return code 1
I have to rename a group of machines in my little samba domain (tbd backend) but there is an ugly bug that makes this impossible. have set 'rename user script' variable corectly, also checked all configurations.When i change computer name in my windows box, it shows an error saying something like "Error calling remote procedure"Looking on server side, username for the machine gets correctly changed in /usr/passwd, and also in samba database.But samba log says:
=============================================================== [2009/10/08 11:10:32, 0] lib/fault.c:fault_report(42) INTERNAL ERROR: Signal 11 in pid 11052 (3.0.33-3.7.el5_3.1)
I have a user account which is required to run as part of the operating system and as a service. I am currently attempting to install my companies software on an Ubuntu desktop via wine just for the purpose of finding out if it's do-able.
Is there a way, in Ubuntu, for a user account to be given the local rights assignment to act as part of the operating system and to function as a service in the background?
What I am tring to do is give all users of group users rwe any files/directories of a samba share execpt for the top level.Top Level cotains a number of folders and a readme file and should be r-eSublevel should be rwe including files/dir they did not create.I'm am familure with chmod/chgrp but not sure how to do this.
