Ubuntu Networking :: Samba Share Cannot Access Symbolic Links To Other Drives?

Jan 10, 2011

I've created two samba shares, /media/disk1 and /media/disk2 say the structure is like this:

/media/disk1/dir2 links to /media/disk1/dir1
/media/disk2/dir1 links to /media/disk1/dir1

so I can access /media/disk1/dir1 and /media/disk1/dir2 from samba share, but I cannot access /media/disk2/dir1, on Windows 7 it throws:


[Window Title]
Location is not available
N:dir1 is not accessible.
Access is denied.

In conclusion, symbolic inside the same drive is okay, but when cross-drive links happened, I cannot access them..

Ubuntu Networking :: Symbolic Links Deny Permission In Samba Share?

Oct 19, 2010

I have a Samba share that contains a symbolic link and when I try accessing it from the WinXP machine it denies permission. If I access it from the Linux account, it goes in with no problems. Is there a certain setting that needs to be set or enabled or is this just one of those things with Samba?

Ubuntu :: Samba - Windows Cannot Access Symbolic Links?

Apr 13, 2011

I have samba set up, and I can log in, etc. However, whenever I try to access a symbolic link, windows tells me that "windows cannot access [directory name]".

I have this under global, but it doesn't seem to help:


follow symlinks = yes
wide symlinks = yes
unix extensions = no

The permissions of the target directories are open.

If you have some directories shared that contain symbolic links that are NOT being resolved by the client machine, try adding these lines to your /etc/samba/smb.conf file:

Debian Configuration :: Samba Denies Symbolic Links After Upgrade

Mar 14, 2010

I just upgraded samba on my lenny-server:

apt-cache policy samba
Installed: 2:3.4.7~dfsg-1~bpo50+1

...and since then my windows xp clients cannot follow a symbolic link to a common area from their home folders.

I have googled and tried to add follow symlinks and wide links to my homes share

= Home Directories
browseable = no
follow symlinks = yes
wide links = yes

...but after restarting samba on the server and rebooting the windows machine the user still cannot follow the link.

Ubuntu Networking :: Remote Access To Samba Share

Sep 22, 2010

I need to access a windows share at my university's server. When I am at the university, I can access the share by nautilus (or dolphin) in a similar way to ftp:


The thing is that when I try the above anywhere else except the university, it does not connect. I guess it has something to do with the domain, but I am not sure.

Ubuntu Networking :: How To Remotely Access Samba Share

Dec 19, 2010

My work uses an internal software suite where the data is hosted with a linux server. It uses mysql and samba shares. We are currently opening a new location and need to be able to access the samba shares. We are able to access the mysql databases. The samba shares are used to store various files for the software such as updates, invoices (as pdf files), etc. I've setup vpn connections using windows servers in the past but I can't, for the life of me, get a VPN server setup on our linux server that windows will connect to. I've tried openvpn and pptp. I'd prefer to use the built in windows client to connect.

Ubuntu Networking :: Mount A Samba Share To Access It From A Terminal?

Feb 3, 2010

I am trying to properly mount a samba share in order to access it from a terminal and run a script that I've written over a folder in the share. How could I do that? I tried smbclient but after successfully logging in I couldn't issue the sh command. Isn't it possible to have it mounted in the /mnt folder like a normal filesystem?

CentOS 5 Networking :: Samba Share Access Restriction?

Apr 29, 2010

cannot restrict share access to a single user. I've played with the security and valid users options in the smb.conf and I can get it to mount if I remove the valid users option, but this does not provide the access restriction I need. I also left it open and tried making the folder permissions rwx for backupadmin only and that didn't work. I'm using a credentials file which I include below, but I've tried manually entering them in the command too.

[root@aaphst02 /]# mount -t cifs //aapsan01/aapxen01 /mnt/aapxen01 --verbose -o credentials=/root/smbcreds
mount.cifs kernel mount options: unc=//aapsan01aapxen01,ip=,user=backupadmin,ver=1,rw,credentials=/root/smbcreds,pass=********

Networking :: Samba Config - Cannot Access Share On Home Network

Sep 1, 2010

I've used Samba for several years and when it works it's great. Unfortunately from time to time it seems to get messed up and either all the 7 machines on my home network can't be seen or I can't access the shares on some. I have 2 Windows XP computers 4 Kubuntu and one Linux Mint KDE, all the latest versions. I'd rather not plough through all the documentation for Samba, but would really like a "model" smb.conf with a few comments about parts that might have legitimate variants. I have researched this with Google searches many times but have failed to find the information I need in concise form.

CentOS 5 Networking :: Allow The User Only See The Size Of The File, And Not The File + Symbolic Links?

Feb 23, 2009

I'm researching about symbolic links been used with samba / CIFS:I'd like that the user that uses a MS-Windows OS could see my shared folder on CentOS 5 and the symbolic links that are inside this folder. Well, it works but, the user will see that the size of the file is bigger than the real file. Apparently, CIFS gets the size of the symbolic link (aproxim.32K) and add it to the size of the file.Example 1: 100KB file, used with shared folder, MS-Windows's user will see 100KBExample 2: 100KB file, used with symbolic link inside a shared folder, MS-Windows's user will see 132KB. (Sym link + size of file)Is there a way to allow the user only see the size of the file, and not the file + symbolic links ?

Ubuntu :: Add Symbolic Links To /usr/local/bin?

Jul 10, 2010

I am trying to set up scripts to execute Luckybackup and make them easily available to all users of the computer. Following the recommendation of the web site (http://ubuntu-tutorials.com/2006/12/...-all-versions/) I tried to set up a folder (/usr/local/myprograms/luckybackup_scripts) containing the scripts, and to put symlinks pointing to the scripts in /usr/lock/bin.

The object of this design was to have my local programs clearly separate from any other programs, and to point to them with symlinks in /usr/local/bin. is because /usr/local/bin is automatically searched when a terminal command is issued so the user need not specify the whole path to the script.The problem that I ran into was that the system would not let me create symlinks to scripts in /usr/local/myprograms/luchybackup_scripts. While ths symlink was created, it was invalid and did point to any target. The only symlinks that I could create had to be in the same folder as the target, namely /usr/local/myprograms/luckybackup_scripts. I tried to create the links using Terminal and "sudo ln -s

Ubuntu :: Different Colors Displayed For Symbolic Links?

Nov 14, 2010

I am having trouble with virtual hosts. The system is not recognizing their existence. In the process of trying to determine the problem (when I do a command of "ls -l" for the sites enabled folder) I noticed that the new symbolic links for the two sites in question show the directories and files linked to in green. The one link that does work (the default link set up with the system install) is in white.

Is there any significance attached to the colors? I would think they should be the same as the working one.

My question is, is there any way to get a list of symbolic links that point to a specific directory which I am going to be moving? that way I can manually go through them and re-point to the new location of the physical folder.

General :: Copy Only Symbolic Links Between Homes?

Mar 27, 2011

copy all symlinks

i want to copy all symlinks (both active and dead) from one partition's os's user's home directory, to another partition's os's user's home directory, and i'm wondering if this can be accomplished with some clever bash options and pipes after "cp".

this is very useful for users with multiboot systems, who keep all their data on a separate drive. this would allow the symlink'ed shortcut tree directory hierarchy expedience, to be instantly copyable to any of their oses.

distro-hoppers/surfers will love it. ^_^

so here goes my first attempt at trying to work out what it'd be...

cp -P
(copy, dont follow symbolic links)
(or is it -d i aught use?)
find /% -type l
(finds symbolic links only

Programming :: Symbolic Links Permissions Unique

Feb 20, 2011

Is it possible to change permissions on symbolic links using the c programming language or any other for that matter? Now, I know what you are thinking, so let me provide some background.I know permission are meaningless. I know that typically permissions are set to 777.The project that I am working on does the following. On HPUX systems, a c binary recreates missing links from a stored image of the filesystem, if they are missing. The problem is that the permissions are 700 when the links are restored (should be 777). The c method to restore the symbolic links is "symlink()" which takes as its argument the target and linkname.The client wants 777 on the links. I do not know why the permissions are different. I would like to know if I can change permissions on the link by code, changing the mode?

Is this a bug somewhere in HPUX 10,x and 11.x os or "symlink" c library method, who knows?There are groups of nodes running HPUX, for example groupA, groupB etc.The problems appears in groupA but not in groupB. Seems the nodes are configured differently.While I would love to know if this is a configuration issue, it appears that way to me, there would be little I could do about it. Politics you know, but that's okay, in time someone would listen.

Ubuntu Servers :: Vsftpd: Symbolic Links Or Mount Bind?

May 21, 2010

I'm setting up an ftp server with lucid server. A lot of the folders that should be accessible via the ftp are in different directories (and can't be moved without a LOT of hazzle) and I have to either symlink or mount bind them to the ftp chroot dir. Now I'm wondering which one is the saver variant? My guess is mount bind, but I'm not that familiar with the internal workings of linux and vsftpd (plus for symlinks I wouldn't have to change/create any scripts, just create them once...),

Ubuntu Servers :: Do Symbolic Links Force Drive Mounting?

May 30, 2010

I have a 8.04 LTS server that i have installed a new 1TB drive. The server is running great but I am bit confused regarding the ln -s command and drive mounting. I have backuppc installed on the server and I am running out of storage space. To reolve this I moved the cpool and pool directories to the 1 TB drive and type from within the /var/lib/backuppc directory ln -s cpool /store/1TB/cpool this created the symbolic link to the new drive and everything works fine. I then rebooted the server and everything is runing fine but the drive does not show up in the df -h command, however the directories appear to be mounted fine.

I thought the drive would not be mounted automatically until it was defined in the fstab. Does the ln -s command force the system to automatically mount the directories but not the volume? This behaviour has caused me to delete my backup data becuase I was sure the disk was not mounted but is was!
