Ubuntu Servers :: Samba And Mounting Permissions Confusion?

May 18, 2011

I'm having a hard time figuring out how to set permissions on my samba server and on mounting the share. I would appreciate help figuring things out. What I need to achieve is have a server share mounted on a computer and give read write access to the users of that client computer. Also permissions should be respected is a user limits access to a directory or file he creates.

What I did was replicate the users on both server and client computers and create an extra user on the server that has full access to the share both in linux and in samba, and I'm mounting the share on the client computer using that extra user from fstab. (Is this the best way to set things up or is there a better way?)

Now the issues I'm having; Whenever a user A creates a directory or file it's listed as created by user B. It turns out that the UID does not match on both computers. How do I fix that short or deleting and recreating the users in the proper order.

- Backup scripts running as root get lot permission denied errors writing to the share especially when using chown and chgroup. Could someone explain, or point me to an explanation of the logic behind permissions and mounting?

Ubuntu Servers :: Samba Permissions On Share Level

Oct 13, 2010

I'm trying to set up my samba server so that all the shares are visible to everybody but that some shares can only be accessed by certain users. I have a folder Video that everybody can access without a username or password. I now want to create a share that only I can access called webserver.

This is my samba.conf
Code:
[global]
dns proxy = No
netbios name = DATABOX
guest account = nobody
restrict anonymous = no
browseable = yes
server string = server
workgroup = WORKGROUP
public = yes
security = share

[Video]
Writeable = yes
Path = /media/data/Video
Public = yes

[webserver]
Writeable = yes
Public = no
User = malteser
Path = /media/data/Webserver

Windows does not let me enter a username or password. I'm pretty sure this used to work.

Ubuntu Servers :: Configuring Samba Permissions To Emulate Netware?

Apr 22, 2010

I'm replacing an ancient Netware server with a new Ubuntu 8.04 box running samba and LDAP. I want to see if there's a way to get Samba to emulate the way permissions propagate through Netware. Namely, if I see a directory structure like this:

[User Cant See]
--- [User Cant See]
------- User Can Edit.txt
------- User CANT Edit.txt

With Netware I can give permission to User to edit "User Can Edit.txt" and the permissions will propagate in reverse to allow User to see the two [User Cant See] directories and edit the text file. "User CANT Edit.txt" will still be invisible to User. This is very convenient as I can simply give user access to one file, they can navigate to it through the directory structure, and all files not explicitly given access to will still be invisible.

With Samba the only way I've been seeing to get this would be to explicitly give User access to both [User Cant See] directories, give him access to the "User Can Edit.txt" and remove any access to "User CANT Edit.txt" and every other file in the latter two nested directories.

Ubuntu Servers :: Samba Shares Using Active Directory Permissions?

Jul 20, 2010

I am the IT Manager at a research facility. We have a fairly unique network configuration in order to support all of the different projects we have going on. We have Red Hat, Ubuntu, Windows XP/Vista/7, Windows Servers 2003, Ubuntu servers, Red Hat servers, and even a few Netgear ReadyNAS and Buffalo Terastations. Over the last few years, I have been migrating all of my users and accounts to a single ACL list, which I chose to be a Windows AD 2003 server. 95% of my users work on Windows platforms and just use ssh tunnels to develop on our linux boxes.

However, i ran in to a problem with our Linux boxes not being able to symbolic link on my Windows 2003 file shares. Of course, this is a problem with Windows not supporting symbolic links. I know 2008 does support this feature, but given the economy and the budget restraints, we cannot afford to purchase the updates we would need, so now I am moving all of my shares to a Ubuntu 10.04 server using Samba. I have joined the server to my AD domain successfully, i can login using my AD credentials, and even assign ownership and group permissions using AD users/groups.

Here is my question.

I would like to keep the AD permission schemes intact. I have several shares that contain folders that have individual permission settings. For example, I have a /shared directory that contains about 50 different folders. Some of these folders I allow my users to write data to, some just read, and others I deny access to complete groups and just allow key groups to access (for example, personnel data should only be accessed by the Administrative staff).

Is there a way to make this work?

I can assign uid and gid manually per folder in Samba, but i would like to have the possibility to add multiple users and groups with permissions to folders, which I do not believe can be done with the standard chown commands. Currently, I can see the folder permissions from my Windows box, but when I try to edit the permission settings, it defaults back to full access. So my AD permissions are not being saved.

Ubuntu Servers :: Setup Samba Share And Group Permissions?

Feb 15, 2011

I have a couple of user accounts where each member belongs to a group i have created: Each user access the share using their own user account credentials.
How can I configure Samba in a way so that each modification done on the share gets the owner of the user and my group instead of the user and the users own group? I would also like the access rights to be 770 to each modification.

In other words, today each modification by "userA" get the owner "userA.userA" and I would like it to be "userA.MyGroup" with "rwxrwx---" permissions.

Ubuntu Servers :: Preserving Timestamps And Permissions When Copying To Samba-share

May 5, 2010

My samba-shares are mounted in fstab. Everything works fine except for one small issue: when copying files from the local PC to the share the files are copied but the timestamps and permissions of the files are not. Instead a message "operation not permitted" appears. 'root' on the client can copy files WITH timestamp etc, a normal user cannot.

Below the line in fstab on the client and smb.conf on the server.

Ubuntu Servers :: Mounting Samba Shares On System Boot/user Login

Jun 28, 2011

I wrote a little script that will automatically mount two Samba shares to my home directory and I was wondering if a) You guys/gals had any input as to how I could improve on this script and b) Tell me how I would go about having this script automatically execute when I log on via SSH.

Code:

#!/bin/sh
mount -t smbfs -o username=Myuser,password=Thepassword //192.168.1.102/Data1 /home/user/Data1
mount -t smbfs -o username=Myuser,password=Thepassword //192.168.1.102/Data2 /home/user/Data2

Fedora Servers :: Special Permissions For Running Windows Programs Off A Samba Share?

Feb 24, 2009

I've got my Samba shares up and running. I can stream files from the server, I can create files on the server, and I can copy files from the server.

Running a Windows program (from a Windows box) directly from the Samba server, however, is turning into a nightmare. I'm getting Access is Denied errors from the Windows box, yet I can copy/create/etc from the entire directory with no problems.

Are there any special permissions I need to run EXE files from a Windows box, located on a Samba share? I've already chmod'd everything to 777, and I show full access when ls -Z is used.

Networking :: Mounting Permissions Error / Mounting A Windows Host?

May 28, 2009

I am having permissions errors every time I try to mount a windows host. I have a linux server and all the windows computers can see that computer and its files, but we wanted to start backing up the linux machine to one of our other computers. so I tried to mount one of the computers. here is the sequence of events:

Code:
$mount -t cifs //192.168.1.194/Admin$ /mnt/Anita-comp
password: (I have no password so I left it blank)
Mount error (13): Permission Denied
I tried all sorts of passwords we use around the office and none of them worked.

I then decided to try mounting one of our other computers. this one looked like it worked fine. no error messages at all. (I left password blank) so I look in my filesystem and the mounted drive is not in the /mnt/Anita-comp file. What gives?

Fedora :: The Never-ending Of Mounting Permissions?

Feb 12, 2010

I hope I won't get bashed too much on my first post here. The problem I'm experiencing seems to be well known, yet I haven't come across a definite solution to it while searching the forums. I've got an external drive connected to my laptop via eSATA. When I want to mount it as a normal user from GUI level, I'm required to supply the root password since apparently the system's policy doesn't allow external drives partitions to be mounted.

The closest solution to what I would like to achieve is given by giulix in this post. Yet, with the polkit-gnome-authorization utility removed from Fedora 12 (at least so I've heard on mailing lists), it's difficult to find out where to start in terms of policy editing. What I would like to have is being able to mount this volume as a normal user from GUI level. I know I could just add an entry to /etc/fstab, but it just seems so old-fashioned and tacky, and besides, it's not, um, "dynamic" and wouldn't utilize hal and dbus, so I wouldn't have an icon on the desktop. (it's not really the reason, I'd just like to have things done the way they should be right now).

Ubuntu :: Auto Mounting Ntfs Drive With Execute Permissions?

May 10, 2011

Current when my NTFS external drive is auto mounted, I can't run any executables from it.

If I unmount it and then manually do:

sudo mkdir /media/portable
sudo ntfs-3g /dev/sdc1 /media/portable

it works fine. Is there a way to make the auto-mount have "full" access so I can run applications from it?

General :: Automatically Set Write Permissions On Mounting A Usb Drive?

Aug 15, 2010

When I mount an external usb drive on linux (CentOs4), the permissions are by default set to read-only. Since there are multiple users on the computer who need to use the external drive, I want everybody to have rw permission for the entire drive. I also want them to be able to mount the drive if the computer has accidentially been shut down. They can use sudo mount to mount the drive, but this will only give them read permission, and I obviously don't want to allow sudo chmod.

Is there a default setting that I can change so that every new external usb disk automatically gets rw permissions?

Networking :: Mounting Cifs As User - Permissions With SUID Bit?

Jan 11, 2010

I have looked at a LOT of forum posts and other sites trying to solve this problem but I have had no luck. I've seen the following:[URL].. I have an entry in my fstab that lets root mount a samba share on a Windows Server 2003 machine and gives users full read/write access to the share. The fstab entry looks like:

Code:
//servername.net/share /mnt/share cifs rw,user,umask=000,username=someuser,noauto,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777 0 0
However, when a normal user tries to mount the share they get one of two errors:
1. If I have /sbin/mount.cifs set to 777
Code:
mount error(1): Operation not permitted
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs)
2. If I have /sbin/mount.cifs set to +s

Code: mount error: permission denied or not superuser and mount.cifs not installed SUID Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I would go about getting a user able to mount this samba share?

General :: Mounting Ext2 Partition With Write Permissions?

Oct 25, 2009

I need to mount my ext2 partition with write permissions for an average user. Right now, I can only write to the volume using sudo or the root account.

/etc/fstab:

Code:

# Filesystem: Mountpoint: Type: Options: Dump: FSCK:
/dev/sda1 / ext4 defaults 1 1
/dev/sda5 swap swap defaults 0 0

[code]....

can't add the options uid=500,gid=500 to the ext2 volume because it says "bad option" I have 1 question. If you have a volume listed in /etc/fstab, and you try to mount it with different options than the ones listed in fstab, will it mount with the new options, or the fstab options?(e.x. if I try to mount /dev/sda6 with: mount-o auto,user,exec,rw,async. Will it mount with async or sync?)

Ubuntu :: File Permissions Over Samba?

Feb 17, 2011

I have a problem with file permissions over samba. I am running a web server, and this web server needs to be able to delete a file. The php code is correct, because it works on other sites. The php code is failing when it deletes a file because it is being ran as the www-data user. And the permissions on the files that are created on the share are as follows:

ns$ ls -l
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 129628 Feb 6 08:16 20110206071748532.pdf
This directory is mounted on:
/var/www/files/23982dbb7a454425ce17a22bedc00776/scanned/AEC_Scans
This is done with the /etc/fstab file:

Hardware :: Phone And Memory Card Auto Mounting With Write Permissions

Feb 4, 2010

Few weeks ago modified my old mobile phone SE k750i by setting on it w800i firmware. After this my phone isn't really (fully automatically) recognized by Ubuntu (9.10) which is the small problem for me now. Linux recognizes it as a USB device, but doesn't automatically mount it, which is why I have to do that manually and that leads to read only permissions for my user.

Here are the few outputs:

lsusb
Code:
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 002 Device 006: ID 046d:c222 Logitech, Inc. G15 Keyboard / LCD
Bus 002 Device 005: ID 046d:c221 Logitech, Inc. G15 Keyboard / Keyboard
Bus 002 Device 004: ID 0fce:d028 Sony Ericsson Mobile Communications AB
Bus 002 Device 003: ID 046d:c018 Logitech, Inc. Optical Wheel Mouse
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 046d:c223 Logitech, Inc. G15 Keyboard / USB Hub
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
dmesg | grep usb .....

I've tried to create a custom udev rule via this thread, by putting the correct information according to lsusb:

Code:
SUBSYSTEMS=="usb", ATTRS{idVendor}=="0fce", ATTRS{idProduct}=="d028", MODE="0660", OWNER="zivs"
and reloading the udev rules, but that didn't help also.

How could I make my Ubuntu mount the /dev/sdb1 (which is my phone's memory card, since manually mounting it, there's all my phone recorded stuff) automatically on Desktop with all read and write permissions when I connect my phone to computer? Phone gets recognized immediately on Win7 OS ... but after the firmware change it's not really recognized by Ubuntu anymore.

Ubuntu :: Folder Permissions In A Samba Share?

I have set up the samba sharing and that's working fine, but when i create folders using my laptop, they are not writeable to the desktop or other laptop because my laptop is the creator. Is there a way that I can set it so that whenever folders/files are created from either laptop, they have full permissions?

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Get Permissions In Samba Share?

When I create a new folder on my ubuntu machine and share it with my windows 7 machine using 'net usershare add <dir> <path>', I can't get write perms in Win 7. It keeps giving me a "You need permission to perform this action'. I've chmod the folder to 777 but still no luck.

The funny thing is, it was all working fine until I tried to add a new usershare yesterday (Can't think what I've changed). I use this sharing method to share all of my development /var/www/ folders so I can work on them from my win machine.

I have had a few problems with my samba smb.conf, and it nuked and rebuilt yesterday. I'm fairly new to the Linux game, and this permissions problem has me baffled.

Ubuntu :: Samba Share With Group Permissions?

Nov 18, 2010

I am trying to set up a Samba share on one of my machines where I am the owner and a special group manages permissions for read-only access ( me:specialgroup ). If I log into the share as me, there is no problem (I have read/write privs as per usual). However, I am not able to log into the share using any of the group members (there is only one currently). That user is not able to access the share (failed to mount).

The folder (which is the share) is owned by me:specialgroup and the permissions have been forced down the folder. Samba is set to Share this folder with no guest or others write access.

Server :: Setting Up Samba On Ubuntu - Permissions?

May 20, 2010

I'm attempting to set up a Samba share on my lab's small server (Ubuntu Server Edition, 10.04). It looked easy enough, but the share that I set up didn't allow anyone to actually put anything on it: no uploading stuff, etc. (You can still upload files via the command line, so I implemented the unix extensions = no fix). The share is writeable and visible, and anyone can access it (according to the Samba GUI). According to the smb.conf:

[Share]
path = /home/something/Share
writeable = yes
;browseable = yes
guest ok = yes

The other Windows machines in the lab see the new server and its share automatically, although they can't make changes to it, like create a new folder in the share. Most of my lab uses Snow Leopard (OS X 10.6), and a few others use Windows. I can connect to the server using my MacBook either through the terminal or Finder -> Go -> Connect to server -> smb://blah.someplace.edu without problems.

I can do pretty much anything via the command line, but not through the Finder! If I want to create a new folder, it gives me an old-school error message (stupid blue face): "The operation can't be competed because you don't have the necessary permission." If I want to drag-and-drop a file from my desktop to the Share folder, I get a pop-up window (lock + blue face): "Type your password to allow Finder to make changes." If I do, then I get another pop-up: "One or more items can't be copied to "Share" because you don't have permission to read them. Do you want to copy the items you are allowed to read?"

It works, but there is a problem with it. Every folder and file has root:root ownership, so I am unable to change anything. Even when I change permissions manually, it does not work.

Now, I want to move this to fstab but have no idea how an fstab line should look like. Obviously, I want to also have rw access to the disk.

Ubuntu Networking :: Samba Network Share Mounting ?

Oct 8, 2010

I have 2 Ubuntu machines: a desktop in my bedroom, and a laptop.

I have my music shared on my desktop machine, and can access it through the network menu item in the nautilus manager, but I want the files from the share to be mounted on the disk so I can access it through the commandline.

If I right-click the shared folder in Nautilus, it says its location is smb://rob/music

If I do:

mount -t smbfs //rob/music /mnt/music, it tells me that it cant locate rob.

So I try "ping rob" and that doesn't work.

I can't make a hosts entry for rob which happens at this moment to be 192.168.0.8, because my router assigns different IP addresses to various machines at different times, and I cant seem to find a way to make static maps from MAC address to ip address.

So, how come nautilus can see my samba share on the machine "rob", but the mount commands cannot?
