Server :: Log User Samba Who Delete Or Move Files/folders On Samba Server ?
Feb 8, 2010
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.
I have an intermittent issue with with Samba. I can access my samba share with windows xp and vista using windows networking and even by mapping the share to a drive. The problem is that the files and folders disappear inadvertently and I can only access them again if I open the share again from the start with windows explorer. Selinux is disabled and the firewall ports for samba are open. The following software is installed:
I wish to update the drivers for a printer which is being shared using samba - can I just upload the new drivers and overwrite the old or do I need to delete the old drivers before uploading the new ones
I have a LAN of about 70 computers that I would like to share media files between. I have gotten to the point with Samba that I can view the files without a username/password from client PC's. I would like to make all the folders read only except for one which will be writable for everyone. The thing that I am having a hard time with is allowing a couple of administrators (on Windows 7 machines) read/write access for all files/folders. I am completely new to Ubuntu and Samba so please make explanations thorough. Here is /etc/samba/smb.conf file:
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 samba server that I had setup using the default smbpasswd backend, and it worked fine. So long as I remembered to use smbpasswd/passwd to setup a user with a username and password matching the account name of a Windows 7 user, then that windows 7 user would be able to navigate the shares with their permissions correctly.I have switched over to using ldap, and: the console/ssh of the machine can correctly use any of the ldap logins getent passwd/group both show the complete listing my Windows 7 machines can all ping the samba server by its netbios name my Windows 7 machines all prompt for authentication if I type \MACHINENAME into explorerHowever, all attempts to access the shares now continually ask for you to enter your username/password, and then fails anyway.No errors appear to be generated on the server (unless I'm missing a log somewhere). Having hunted around on the web, I'm wondering if it has to do with generation of machine accounts (since it tries to access from MACHINENAMEUSER). Without ldap setup, I didn't need to worry about the machine name, but I'm thinking that maybe smbpasswd took care of this somehow.I use the smbldap-useradd tool to setup a user account, which appears to correctly setup the user in ldap, such as:
Code: dn: uid=sharer,ou=Users,dc=intbus,dc=net objectClass: top
10.10 on a ext4 partition. I deleted a folder that sat on a NTFS partition that I use as data storage. I note that if I delete folders or files on this NTFS partition there is not the option to move to waste basket - it is just deleted. If the folder still exists on the hard drive (has not been over written) I may be able to retrieve it - but where could it be? On the NTFS partition?
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.
I have configured samba server.My requirement was that the path which i have to share was /srv/www/htdocs.With this the shared path for developer user was /srv/www/htdocs/projects.
So in the smb.conf file i made the entries as following:
After that root user was able login to both /srv/www/htdocs and also project folder and developer was only able to login to projects folder.That was according to my requirement but now the problem is that when developer is trying to edit any file in projects folder he is getting error that you dont have permissions to change this file.But developer should be able to edit any files. What changes i need to do now.
So here is what I'm trying to do: I want to share a folder and have it so that guests can access it, but only read. I also want to make it possible that I can mount it as a network drive on my Windows 7 machine and login with my linux account so that I can have write access. This is from a completely stock Ubuntu 8.10 and Samba config. Everytime I've tried I've failed to get it working.
My all production PC r running under ADC windows2008 server. Recently I implement a file server in CentOS 5. Now I want to integrate Samba (File sharing) using Active Directory so that all access permission to file server comes from AD's permission.
I have a samba server with security user. I have a number of shares inside the share with different users logins. But while accessing the shares from windows, in the login prompt, by default username it takes as the guest. How will I disable the default guest user login ?
how to make a new Ubuntu 9.10 box use our LDAP/Samba server for user authentication. Our Red Hat and Windows machines all use it just fine. I've been trying to use the auth-client-config and libnss-ldap packages for this purpose, but I must be missing something. I'm pretty green with LDAP, so this is my first time diving in... Is there a good How-To or step-by-step read on this? All of my searches lead me to setting up Ubuntu as the server, and that isn't what I want. I've also tried the steps listed in [URL] for the LDAP Authentication section.
I have a Samba server on a computer. I would like to backup the Samba files on a different computer that is a client in the Samba server network. I can easily drag and drop the Samba files onto the client. I would like to automate this process, and accomplish this using an update copy versus a copy full. How can I accomplish this as bash script? I had no luck using the 'cp' command.
Samba Server version 3.25 The share directory test , the user's permission will be :Users can copy files into the test directory bywindow's file exploer , and after copying userscan'tither delete that files nor recovery them.
I can go to Places-Network on the gnome menu and pick the share I have on my other machine (I have read-write since the account is in the same user name) I can browse the files on the server using Nautilus, however when I try to open OpenOffice files it fails and won't open them. I have to manually mount the files system as cifs before I can open OpenOffice files. Anybody know why this is happening.
I have installed samba server one month ago and it was working fine till yesterday but today morning when any network client is trying to access samba shared files by giving smb://<serveripaddress> it is asking for password...that is ok but when he is giving the password it is again opening the same password window to enter password again.The clients are giving correct password that is confirm. At the server side i have run smbclient -L localhost -U% and that is giving proper response so that also means that samba server is working fine so i dont know what could be the problem and what its solution.
I have recently installed Fedora F11 with a Samba server. The smb.conf seems fine but I cannot see any of the files in the share from a Windows machine. I am probably missing something unbelievably simple but driving me nuts!
I can see the machine and share from windows
When logged in as the user fred I can see all the files in Linux - most are owed by fred.
smbuser: Code: # x_name = SMB_name1 SMB_name2 ... root = administrator admin nobody = guest pcguest smbguest fred = fred smb.conf: Code: [global] workgroup = Workgroup server string = Samba Server Version %v
netbios name = MachineName
hosts allow = 127. 192.168.0. ......... [Docs] comment = Main Documents path = /mnt/documents read only = no browseable = yes valid users = fred ......... The other thing I find a bit odd is that Code: service smb restart does not effect the way that the windows machine sees Samba. It appears that you need a full restart to get the changes to show properly.
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.
