Ubuntu Servers :: Mounted File Share In 10.04 LTS

Sep 13, 2010

I'm having a some pretty weird problems with some mounted file share in Ubuntu Server 10.04 LTS. Currently we are mounting several file share stored on a SLES Files Server onto our Ubuntu Web Servers using the CIFs protocol. Occasionally ( no rhyme or reason ) we will find that when you do a directory listing on the mounted share, while you are on the Ubuntu Server, there are no files being listed. Yet if you browse the SLES File Server or any other of the identical Ubuntu Servers (with the same mounts), the files are there ready to go.

Before using SLES for our file server we tried windows, and experience many of the problem you that you see on the forums of CIFs errors on the console screen. I'm beginning to wonder if 1. we can resolve the CIFs problems in Ubuntu 10, or do we need to down grad to Ubuntu 9 or 3.) change to something other than CIFs.

Ubuntu Servers :: Mounted NFS Share Will Not Unmount?

Jan 8, 2010

We have a server running Hardy. I configured it as an NFS client and mounted a share. The NFS server is remote and accessed through TCP only (no UDP allowed through the firewall). Now I've mounted it, though, I can't unmount it!

Code:
david@scatha $ mount | grep nfs
example.com:/home/david on /mnt/tmp type nfs (rw,tcp,addr=123.123.123.123)
Now when I try to unmount it:

Ubuntu :: File Browser Will Not Maintain State Mounted To Samba Share?

May 12, 2010

I am running Ubuntu 10.4 [64bit] on a AMD dual core with 4gb of RAM. My Problem: I am mounting to a Windows share from my Ubuntu box and everything is working as expected however, when a file is added, deleted, or modified the Ubuntu File browser does not reflect that change until the next refresh. The Windows users with Explorer will reflect the change immediately and automatically.

Is there a way to make the Ubuntu File Browser respond like Explorer when mounting to a Windows share? I call this behavior "maintaining state".

General :: Change Default File Permission For Mounted Windows Network Share?

Jul 26, 2010

I'm on OS X and mount a network share from my Windows XP machine. Files by default have the rwx (700) permissions. What OS X option I need to change, that the files will have rw (600) permission?

Maybe this question also applies for Linux mounting a Windows network share.

Ubuntu Servers :: Create Samba File Share To Windows Domain Clients?

Apr 28, 2010

I feel ashamed for even asking this, since it seems like there's about 3 samba questions here every day. However after an hour of searching, I keep finding strange variants that aren't what I need.

My Goal: Create a single file share on an Ubuntu Server - share it via samba to Windows clients that are on a domain with active directory. It sure would be nice if AD authentication would work - so users don't have to type in a linux user/passsword each time they want to access the share.

In my adventures, I've found the following items (which may overlap)

1. Joining the server to a Windows Domain

2. Turning the server into a Windows Domain Controller

3. Authentication with LDAP (still not quite sure how/what this would do)

4. Stuff with Kerberos

5. Lots of people bickering about Samba 3/4 & how it's impossible to make Samba a PDC.

I'm not sure if I need to make the ubuntu server a domain controller or not...all I want to do is create a file share and share it on the domain...I don't need to make the ubuntu server a domain controller for that, right? Maybe just a member? Maybe nothing at all?

I guess if I want to authenticate stuff correctly (or forward authentication requests? Not sure), I probably need to join the ubuntu server to the domain...I think.

But let's say I do join it to the domain...then how to I create a file share that is authenticated via active directory rather than a local ubuntu server account? I see a dozen guides on joining the server to the domain, but nobody ever mentions sharing the folder over the domain.

The lines are also blurred between joining Ubuntu to the domain and making it a domain controller. What should I keep an eye out to avoid in these tutorials?

I get lost between the Kerberos/LDAP/Samba/WinBind etc...and I have a feeling I don't need all of these for something this simple.

Ubuntu :: Cannot Change Permissions On Mounted Share?

Jul 18, 2011

I'm having a problem changing permissions on a network share. The share is mounted on my server using cifs. It has been working perfectly for a week or more. I use a bash script to copy files from a temporary folder on the server to folders on my HTPC that are mounted on my server.The server is Ubuntu Server 10.04 and the HTPC is XBMC Live Dharma.

The problems began when I added chmod lines to my bash script to temporarily change permissions. I had the entire mounted share set to 777 on the server, and I was worried that I might accidentally delete the files or something, so I set it to 555 and then modified my script. This was not intended to be a permanent solution, but I wanted to use it as a band-aid solution until I figured out how to do it properly. The mounted folder is called "tabitha" and it is mounted in the home folder of the user "turvy" on the server.The script looks like this:

Code:
#!/bin/bash
#chmod -R 777 /home/turvy/tabitha/hd2/TV

Ubuntu Servers :: Folder And File Creation - Can't Successfully Share Editable Files Between Users

Feb 18, 2010

I'm trying to setup a Samba share for our work. I have it almost complete, however I can't successfully share editable files between users. The issue I'm having is that say User1 create a file test.txt, because of the 755 permissions, then User2, who has "writable" rights as per the smb.conf file, cannot edit that test.txt file.

Whevener I create a file with a user, its locked by that user. Is there a way I can set it that every folder/file a user creates is 777 ? I firgured that there's still security because of the "Valid users = " field in the smb.conf file.

Server :: Mount A Mounted NFS Share?

Oct 23, 2009

I'm trying to mount a mounted NFS share. I have a server that connects through VPN to a network, that has the NFS share exported. I am able to successfully mount the NFS share on that server, in /media/iSCSI. Now I want to share this NFS share with other servers, that are on the same network as the VPN-ed server, but are not connected to VPN. When I try to export the mounted share, I get:

Code:

/etc/init.d/nfs-kernel-server restart

Ubuntu Networking :: Slow Transfer To Mounted CIFS Share?

May 2, 2010

I have a Hitachi SimpleNET adapter (entry-level NAS device) on a Seagate FreeAgent 1TB external HDD (formatted ext3). The NAS device is connected over 100MB/s ethernet to a Netgear Wireless G router. All other devices connect using Wireless G. The NAS runs embedded Linux on an ARM processor and it runs vsftpd and Samba for file transfers.

If I transfer a large file using an FTP client the transfer maxes out at around 2.5MB/s. For my purposes that's good enough, especially considering the Wireless G bottleneck. If I transfer a file from a Windows 7 client (using samba) I get around 2.2MB/s. I know the CIFS protocol has more overhead than FTP and the difference in speed isn't that noticeable.Any combination of Ubuntu and Samba results in me getting less than 1MB/s. I've tried mounting it through Nautilus (GVFS) and /etc/fstab. FTP from this same Ubuntu client gets around 2.5MB/s.

I don't have root access on the SimpleNET to change the smb.conf. I've made a few adjustments to the mount options with no success. how to either speed up 10.04 as a Samba client or mount a folder on an FTP server locally? I've tried both curlftpfs and FUSEFTP. With curlftpfs any write operation results in an I/O error and it crashes intermittently. With FUSEFTP I never got that far and couldn't even browse the folder.

Ubuntu Networking :: Lost Desktop Icon For Mounted Network Share

Jan 19, 2010

I have suddenly lost the desktop icon (of a hard drive) for a mounted network share. It is funny because, I have other network mounts which share the same server, and there icons are appearing, and this particular share just does not show up with the icon, even if I try mounting it different locations in the filesystem. Any ideas. I really like those cute icons on my desktop.

Ubuntu Networking :: Samba Can Share Mounted Thumb Drive But Can't Write?

Sep 6, 2010

so after searching and reading, and searching some more, im stuck. i cant seem to get a mounted thumb drive to give write access. first thing to know is that, im using a seagate dockstar with a primary thumb drive[sda1] booting debian and samba.

i guess you could say im still in the testing phase, just trying to make sure files can be shared, mounted and accessed by users. the problem is stated as the title. i have successfully shared a folder in sda1 with rw access, but i cant do the same for the second drive[sdb1].

for sda1 with rw access, here are the smb.conf settings:

Code:
[shared]
path = share
available = yes
valid users = mark

General :: Both Users Unable To Share Mounted Drive?

Aug 18, 2010

Noticed this in both Ubuntu 10.04 & now Mint 9, both Gnome. I didn't have PCLinuxOS2010 KDE installed long enough to experience it so I don't know if it's a property of Linux or part of Gnome.I have two users, both myself and my wife, and I noticed thatn I mount an internal SATA drive I can only see/access it under the user that mounted it. In order for the other user to see it I need to un-mount the drive. Drive is a 1TB SATA formatted NTFS.I can't imagine this is normal and the 2nd drive is shared for pics/data/etc. Strange quirk is that my install is on a partitioned primary drive, 320gb, that also has Windows on it so the OS must access the drive in order to boot - both users can see the mounted 215gb Windows NTFS partition simultaneously.Is there a setting that needs to be changed or is this normal?

General :: Setting Up Group Permissions For A Mounted Share?

Jul 6, 2010

Sorry if this is the wrong section for this type of question. Anyway, I have two servers running Ubuntu 10.04. Server A has an NFS share that is mounted on server B, and the former has this share set up with specific permissions for a group called netusers. This group basically grants its users read/write permissions, and blocking all of files from anyone who's not part of the group.My question is this: how can I set up the permissions on server B, such that if I was to add a new user on server B, he would have read/write access to the share? I tried adding a counterpart group called netusers with the same permissions on B, but that didn't work.

General :: Cannot Change File Permissions On A Mounted File System

Apr 6, 2010

I have an ntfs partition that I wish to access as a normal user(non-root). For this I did the following. As root I created a folder /windows and did a chmod 777 -R on /windows. Then I added the following line to /etc/fstab

Code:

/dev/sda3 /windows ntfs-3g defaults,nosuid,nodev,umask=000 1 0

Now, the partition is mounted alright but the problem is that when any other user (non-root) creates a files in /windows (say by executing touch newfile) the newly created file has the owner and group set as root. The non-root user can create the file and he can also delete the file, however, he cannot change the permissions of the file and also the owner:group is always set as root:root. How do I get across this problem, i.e. how do I mount a partition, so that a non-root user can also change the permissions and ownerships of the files he creates.
