Ubuntu :: Change Permissions Of Windows Shared Folder

Jan 31, 2011

I'm in an organization where each user has a Windows network username, and a central windows server with a folder for each user. I can access the folder using SAMBA and my (windows) network user name. I want to change the permissions (sharing settings) for my folder on this windows server - using only Ubuntu.

Had i been using windows I would simply right-click on the folder, go to permissions settings and add/modify users in the list.First of all, is it even possible to do this using Ubuntu?

I mounted a shared windows folder from my LAN, and I changed the mount point's ownership on Linux using command line `chown me:me windir`. but when I enter the mount point, and to create files, it mentioned me 'Permission denied', but the file is actually created on the windows' folder, and its ownership is root:root.
this problem puzzled my programs going to run on it. cause them will detect a system returned error, and terminate in a abnormal way.

CentOS 5 :: Shared Folder Permissions ?

Jan 17, 2011

I have a SHARE folder with the following permission:

drwxrws--- 2 sales sales 4096 Jan 17 05:11 SHARE

We use WinSCP or SCP to transfer files over to the SHARE folder. The files that are transferred always have the following permissions:

Is there an elegant way of allowing users to copy files over and have the permissions changed automatically?

So that it would look like:

Is creating a cron job to change the permissions from time to time the solution?

Ubuntu :: File Permissions Of Shared Folder Using Virtualbox?

Feb 4, 2010

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.

Code:

drwx------ 1 root root 1088 2010-02-04 10:18 Mac_Share/

I used the following command to mount the folder:

Code:

sudo mount -t vboxsf Share_Documents ~/Mac_Share/

I checked that the folder is mounted I can see what is there using

Code:
sudo ls Mac_Share/

How do I make the folder accessible to the user? Is there another -option needed to do this in the mount command?

General :: Ubuntu Server - Set File Permissions For VirtualBox Shared Folder?

Jul 30, 2011

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?

Debian :: Cannot Log In After Folder Permissions Change

Apr 19, 2015

I have a Debian Wheezy 7 installation. When I turn it on it boots to the log in screen normally. However when I type in my username/password and try to login the screen briefly turns off for about one second and returns to the log in screen. I cannot log in.

This started happening immediately after I changed the owner and permissions for the "/tmp" folder and all of its contained files/directories. This is the only change I made to the system before the problem began. Immediately after I made the change, I rebooted the system and that's when the problem began.

Ubuntu :: Cannot Change Folder / File Permissions On Entire HDD

Apr 17, 2010

I have two drives in my computer: a 160GB and an 80GB. The 80 holds Ubuntu, the home folder, etc. The 160 is for other files. I need to change the read-write permissions on the 160, but I can't. If I do it through the GUI (right-click>permissions) it just changes back instantly. If I do it through the command line (even with sudo), it has no effect.

I've tried updating from 8 to 10 using updater and it failed. I'm currently running off a LIVE CD and want to back up my files to do a re-install. My problem is that some of my folders are showing as "unreadable", that I am "not the owner" and I cannot seem to change the permissions for them. I also cannot seem to copy them to back them up. Have I lost these folders? Is there any way to retrieve them?

Ubuntu / Apple :: Change Username To One That Have Permissions For The Folder?

Feb 9, 2011

So I'm trying to put together a birthday present for my girlfriend. Here's the background. She just got back from a semester abroad in Rome. She's having a hard time getting used to living in the states again, so I want to make her a photo album with all of her pictures from Italy and the rest of Europe. Its a surprise, so I can't just get them from her. I've got her Time Machine, which has all the photos on it (I'm 'debugging' it for her, she's not so tech savvy). I've found the pictures folder, but I don't have the permissions to access it.

So the question is, I have her username and password, what do I have to do in order to read the file with all the pictures in it? I'm not a crazy stalker, in case you were wondering, I just don't know how to change my username to one that have permissions for the folder.

Ubuntu Security :: Change Permissions Of Folder's Content?

Feb 22, 2011

Recently I've tried installing Calibre from the Software Centre, but it seemed to be glitching as when I press Update Source, the 'In Progress' icon shows up, but when it finishes nothing changes - the Update Source button is still Should I report this?Anyways, I've installed Calibre from their website to .calibre in Home Folder. However, the folder is 'locked' as it requires root priveleges and I can't drop files there without being the admin. I'd like to reduce 'open as root' files to minimum, so I was wondering if there is a way to change the permissions of all the content in one operation, preferably using GUI, and not the terminal?

In addition I've noticed that other folders in my Home Folder like Pictures/Wallpapers require root privileges. This is really annoying as when I 'experiment' with Ubuntu I use Live CD to make sure I don't screw up the main system. When I do I can't open some files from hard disk because of those root inconsistencies

I just installed Karmic, but I can't copy an old user's home folder (/home/oldusername/) because everything is owned by root.I read but I'm concerned about messing up the system or the files in that old user's folder.So, how do I adjust the permissions of the files in /home/oldusername so that I can use openssh to copy them over my home network to my other computer? I have the ssh part figured out, but the files will not copy to the laptop due to permissions.

Ubuntu Servers :: How In World Can I Change Permissions Either On Drive Or Folder

Jul 10, 2011

I had an old windoz 2003 server running a few recreational web sites. I've grown tired of all the hacking attempts, FTP floods, etc. Ok.. I've grown tired of windoz period.When I set the server up, I had the operating system on one physical drive and stored all of the web files on a separate physical drive just in case I ever wanted to make some changes to the operating system.in my adventurous ways, I've dumped windoz and installed ubuntu 11, 32 bit server edition on this machine. It is running fine from what I see on the server side. The first problem I've noticed is when even attempting to navigate to localhost through the server's web browser, I get a permissions issue.

So... off to the drive where the httpd.conf file points to. This is the second physical drive. When checking permissions and attempting to change them to the correct ones for the folder, I can't change them. I've tried through the GUI and the terminal as root. Neither way will change the permissions.I've stepped back and checked the permissions on the physical drive the files are stored on. I am having the same issues with the drive itself. How in the world can I change the permissions either on the drive or the folder? Is there something I should do as far as the drive's mounting?

Ubuntu :: Acces To Shared Folder On Windows 2008

Mar 30, 2010

Here is my config so far :

1. I installed Windows server 2008, with Active Directory, DNS, DHCP.
2. I installed Ubuntu 9.10 and joined it to the domain. Everything is ok. I can see the Ubuntu in the active directory, it gets an Ip address from the DHCP.
3. I create a shared folder on the server 2008.
4. I can access the server from Ubuntu ONLY by going to "Connect to Server" and entering the data to connect.

My problem :I would like to have the shared folder showing up when Ubuntu boots up or when the user is logging IN on the Ubuntu host. I have tried many things without success. I know how to do it so this is fine. BUT i would like a user to be able to access the shared folder without having to do anything (especially for users who are not familiar with computers). What is the best way to do it ?

Ubuntu :: Move/copy A File To A Shared Windows Folder?

Mar 23, 2010

I am able to view my windows network from my UBUNTU desktop after being prompted for a username and password to the windows network. No problem. But how can I accomplish this from the command prompt?

Here is my windows directory; smb://corpserver/d$/Data

And here is what I am trying to accomplish;

Code:
mv /var/lib/mysql/RSecuredData.csv smb://corpserver/d$/Data/Common/Secured%20R%20Reports/$(date +%Y%m%d)_RSecuredData.csv

Basically taking a csv file and moving it from mysql directory on my Ubuntu machine to a network folder on my windows server. (Windows Server 2003)

When I try that command from the command prompt I recieve;

Code:
mv: cannot move `/var/lib/mysql/RepoSecuredData.csv' to `smb://corpserver/d$/Data/Common/Secured%20Repo%20Reports/20100323_RepoSecuredData.csv': No such file or directory

General :: Linpus Lite - Change File / Folder Permissions?

Aug 19, 2010

I own an Acer Aspire One which has Linpus Lite installed. Last night I attempted to delete a couple of files only to find they are read only and that I cannot change the permissions by right clicking and changing the drop down menu from read only.

These aren't protected files or anything, they are files I've downloaded or created myself (one using the onboard web cam to test it).

I attempted to play with Terminal for a bit but as a newbie I got easily lost, not like I can fall back on command prompt knowledge from Windows!

I think it's somehow connected with the user which accesses these docs or tries to change the permissions. I also tried with an su- which meant I was using Terminal as root, however, I wasn't sure how I could then set the permissions for a particular file/folder within the file system.

Ubuntu Servers :: Change File Or Folder Permissions On A Separate Internal Drive In 10.10?

Jan 23, 2011

Every time I try to change file or folder permissions on a separate internal drive in ubuntu 10.10 desktop in sudo file manager, It sets it right back to the way it was before and doesn't save the permissions I want to change it to. The files aren't critical system files that are not even existent on this hard drive.

Its on a completely separate drive, Yet aren't I suppose to be in control of what gets changed to what? Instead of a Operating System doing something just for my safety? A simple AVI files permissions being changed shouldn't hurt anything. How to I stop ubuntu 10.10 from auto setting the permissions of my folders and files? Its really starting to me off right now. I've been looking around on google for Auto reset permissions for ubuntu, Haven't found one word about it. Yet I'm just going to assume someone might know how to resolve this? Or has dealed with this before.

I'm just trying to Forcefully set my folders on my separate drive all to 777 because they are all 775 and 755 and I can only access them with Write privileges if I run the SUDO file manager which I really hate having to do every so often I'm sure you can relate to how annoying it is to have to open up terminal and type something in to open a fully priviledged file manager.

Server :: Windows Machine Cannot See Samba Shared Folder

Apr 30, 2009

I have everything networked properly, as far as I can tell, both computers see each other... I can use putty to port in and use my Linux machine (Debian 4). When I go to map network drive on my XP machine, I can see the computer, but not the shared folder. After some googling I found that i have to create my Windows user name ont he Linux machine as a user as well. Unforunately, that user is 'Administrator'. So I told Linux to force user, and it created it, and did smbpasswd command and added the user to the samba list. Still nothing.

Now I'm trying to access Windows shared folders from Linux operating systems.

Here's the deal. I created a shared folder on Windows 2000 Professional. I want to open it from Kubuntu 10.04.

I am not running Virtualbox. These are separate operating systems on separate computers.
