Ubuntu :: Samba - Get The Correct Default Permissions When Users Create Directories Through Windows?

Apr 1, 2010

I've got a small issue that when a Windows user creates a new folder through Windows Explorer (from the menu or by right clicking) the new folder is only accessible to that particular user. Example: user SABKAR (member of the HR group) creates a new folder called MarcTestMenu in a shared Samba directory through Windows Explorer:

[Code]....

At this point user MORAMY cannot copy a file or open the directory MarcTestMenu. MORAMY gets a 'not accessible' error message in Windows. If I su to the Samba box and issue this command:

[Code]...

how I can get the correct default permissions when users create directories through Windows?

OpenSUSE Network :: SAMBA - Changing Default Permissions On Files And Directories Created From Windows Clients

Mar 9, 2010

I have a fileserver running openSUSE 11.2 and samba services for file access from MS Windows based workstations. My question relates to changing default permissions on files and directories created from the windows clients.

Following are extracts of the /etc/samba/smb.conf file :

Even with the above entries, sometimes there are files and directories created by the windows clients having permission

Probably my lack of understanding in ACLS.

General :: Multiple Users To Create Directories Over SFTP So The New Directories Keep The Same Permissions?

May 15, 2011

I want to make a webserver with multiple users allowed to login through SFTP to a specific folder, www.Multiple users are added, lets say user1 and user2, and all of them belonging to the www-data group. The www directory has an owner www-data and a group www-data.

I have used chmod -R 775 on the www folder, but after I try to create a folder test through my SFTP server (using Filezilla) the group of the directory created has only r and x permissions, and I am not able to log in with the second user user2 and create a directory within www/test due to a lack of w permission to the group.

I also tried using chmod 2775 on www directory, but without luck. Can somebody explain to me, how can I make it so that a newly created directory inherits the root directory group permissions?

Ubuntu :: SAMBA Default File Create Permissions?

Mar 28, 2011

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--".

Ubuntu Networking :: Samba Setting Permissions Not Correct

Jun 28, 2011

I am experiencing strange difficulties with Samba. The permissions aren't set correctly, when creating a file or a folder on the mounted samba share.

My smb.conf looks as follows:
Code:
[shareOffice]
path = /home/shareOffice
writable = yes
browseable = yes
create mode = 0777
directory mask = 0777
force create mode = 0777
force directory mode = 0777

Now if I create a regular file on the folder:
Code:
touch testFile; ls -l
The permissions turn out to be:
Code:
-rwxr-xrwx 1 simon share 0 2011-06-28 21:42 testFile

Why the w bit on the group is missing? If I play around with the create mode / force create mode, I get every other possible permission output --- except the write access for group members.

Fedora Hardware :: Setting Correct Default Permissions On /dev/parport*

Jun 23, 2011

I know - who uses parallel ports any more? People like me with an excellent, but old, HP OfficeJetPro 1150C. This is an old problem marked [SOLVED] in the following link to nowhere:

[URL]

I'm at Fedora 13 - 2.6.34.8-68.fc13.i686.PAE

Problem
1. /dev/parport0 is not found by sane unless you reset permissions after each boot
2. hplip udev rules only seem to support usb devices.
3. there are no/dev/parport[0-9] rules in udev/rules.d anymore
4. Did I read something about these ports being handled by HAL ACLs? If so, how do you do it?

default:
ls -laF /dev/parport0
crw-rw---- 1 root lp 99, 0 Jun 23 07:48 /dev/parport0

must do at each boot: sudo chmod 666 /dev/parport0

Networking :: Samba - Permissions Of Shared Directory And Directories Above It?

Oct 20, 2009

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

/home/william/shared

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.

Ubuntu :: Set Default File Permissions For Newly Created Directories?

Nov 18, 2010

I'm just wondering: I know that umask sets the default file permissions for files, however I want to know if there is anyway to set default file permissions for newly created directories.

For example, I want my user to create new directories that anyone can access and modify (777) but I want the new files the user creates to be 755 (read by everyone, written only by user).

Is this possible?

Server :: Samba Permissions - Files & Directories Can't Be Renamed / Moved / Deleted

Feb 10, 2010

After what feels like weeks have tinkering around trying to get a Samba file server set up, I've finally given up! I have 4 drives and 2 groups:

1) Dev - Available to all users in both groups (normal and admin)
2) Misc - Available to users in admin group only
3) Admin - Available to users in admin group only
4) Accounts - Available to users in admin group only

Drives 1 and 2 are working fine, with the correct access rights. Drives 3 and 4 can be browsed by admins only, but no changes can be made at all - files & directories can't be renamed/moved/deleted. What is most confusing is that Drive 2 is set up exactly the same as Drives 3 and 4. The process I went through to get them working:

Red Hat / Fedora :: SELinux Is Preventing The Samba Daemon From Reading Users' Home Directories

Sep 1, 2010

My Fedora box is giving me an SELinux security error:

Code: Summary:

SELinux is preventing the samba daemon from reading users' home directories.

Detailed Description:

SELinux has denied the samba daemon access to users' home directories. Someone
is attempting to access your home directories via your samba daemon. If you only
setup samba to share non-home directories, this probably signals an intrusion
attempt. For more information on SELinux integration with samba, look at the
samba_selinux man page. (man samba_selinux)

Allowing Access: If you want samba to share home directories you need to turn on the
samba_enable_home_dirs boolean: "setsebool -P samba_enable_home_dirs=1"

Fix Command:

setsebool -P samba_enable_home_dirs=1

Additional Information:

Source Context system_u:system_r:smbd_t:s0
Target Context unconfined_u:object_r:user_home_dir_t:s0
Target Objects /home/micah [ dir ]
Source smbd

Ubuntu Servers :: Add Windows & Mac Users As Samba Users?

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).

General :: Create System And Samba Users With A Script?

Jan 7, 2010

I need to add linux and samba users using a shell script, it falls over because you are prompted to set a password.

I had a similar problem when installing the samba package using a script because it asks for confirmation after the command, I got round it using --force-yes -y as below.

apt-get install samba smbfs swat --force-yes -y

I suspect and hope you can do something along those lines when creating a linux user and a samba user, something like

smbpasswd ´┐Ża username ?

Red Hat / Fedora :: Windows Cannot Access Samba Directories?

Ubuntu :: Permissions For Rsync And BackinTime - Setup 2nd HD With Correct Permissions?

May 31, 2011

Problem: permissions for rsync and BackinTime. Setup: Ubuntu 11.04, Two internal HD, #1=main, single boot, #2=backup drive. Question: How do I set up my 2nd HD with correct permissions? Background: I had previously a dual boot XP+10.04 with a 2nd HD formatted as NTFS. With this I was able to use my rsync and backintime to my 2nd HD with no issue. My new set up is EXT4 on both HD.

(I even tried to reformat my 2nd HD as NTFS, but that didnt fix the issue) I followed [URL] to mount the 2nd HD and get permissions. But now when I run backintime i get this error: [E] Error: rsync: opendir "/home/myhome/.ssh" failed: Permission denied (13) I did my requisite reading for a newbie, and am stuck. I ran backintime as root, and it backed up ok. How do I run my user version of backintime? (i.e. How do I fix the permission issue?)

CentOS 5 Networking :: Windows Permissions On Samba Share?

Apr 30, 2009

I have set up a Samba share via my CentOS 5 server (the samba share is actually a mounted filesystem, not local machine space). I have been successful in adding permissions for my windows users within the smb.conf, but have an additional need that I cannot figure out. I would like for my Windows administrators to be able to create folders and assign permissions from their machines (and their Windows GUI). Ultimately I need the folders on the Samba share to behave correctly when Windows group permissions are applied by these administrators.

When the folders are created, the "Everyone" identity cannot be deleted and sometimes "Creator Owner" or "Creater Group" show up. I have seen several threads start down this path, but haven't seen a definite answer (I may have just missed it!).

Ubuntu Networking :: Samba Shares Used In Windows DFS Not Accessible To Remote Users

The shares work fine for local users that are physically on the same network (192.168.0.X). Remote users from other offices or dialing in with a vpn client can not access the these particular folders off the DFS. However, they can map them directly from the ubuntu server.
