Ubuntu :: File Permission For User Accounts Win7 Dualboot?

Jul 12, 2011

This computer is set up as dual boot Ubuntu / Windows 7.

I have accounts for my sons set up in Windows 7, and also in Ubuntu (11.04).

How can I give them permission to access their (and only their own) user area in windows ("/User/jasper/Documents/..." etc)?

CentOS 5 :: Real-time File Replication For User Accounts?

Nov 22, 2009

this idea to me right now seems stupid and impractical so I'm also looking for solutions outside of this one. I'm creating a set of highly available servers. They currently utilize pacemaker to manage a shared IP address, apache management, mysql management and also drbd handling. They currently replicate, properly failover and run fine. However, this is a shared web hosting setup and everytime a new user is added to the system a username and password is created and the httpd.conf file is updated for their site. I need a way to replicate those changes to the other server. For httpd.conf I'm pretty sure I can just stick it on the apache drbd resource and create a symbolic link. However, for the passwd and shadow files that is not a realistic solution.

I have been reading the other posts that are similar but not the same as mine when determining the cause of grub not 'seeing' Win7. I have done all the usual things like 'update-grub' but it doesn't see it. I ran the script that has been suggested but can't identify what the issue is.

Ubuntu Servers :: Win7 Needs Permission To Copy To Smb Share?

Oct 5, 2010

I setup ubuntu 10.04.1 server on a computer I'm using as a server for my home. I can view the share folder on server from win7 I can read files but cannot right to the share. However from Xubuntu I was able to read and write no problem. So the question is... why can't windows 7 read and right like xubuntu? I have 2 win7 machines and both were denied writing to the share folder... I'm by no means an expert.. I setup the share using ubuntu server guide pdf... not sure if its done correctly maybe someone here knows off hand what kind of permissions would be causing this.

Ubuntu :: 3 User Accounts 1 Admin?

Feb 6, 2010

I'm installing a new laptop for a friend of mine and he wants 3 user accounts, similair to how he runs his windows setup.

1, an admin account, we have called this account peacemaker.
2. his account
3. an account for his girlfriend.

The problem we have is that if we want to do anything from the terminal that requires elevated priviledges, sudo does not accept his password or that of peacemakers. we have done sudo -i -u peacemaker but it still doesn't accept either password, stating his account is not in the sudoers list.

I'm not a massive expert here, but research brought me to this page:[URL]... But that then just means his account has admin rights, which is what we were trying to avoid. We wanted a setup similair to windows where if you want to run someting with elevated privledges if pops up asking for the admin password. This works in the gui, but not in the terminal.

So in short, my question is, is there anyway of having the terminal accept peacemakers user rights from the his normal user account? If I add the account to the sudoers list like it suggests, does this again just give his account the prilvedges rather than saying supply me with the password for peacemaker.

this is probably not really needed and he can just have his account as the main user, but coming from a windows background, he would prefer the 3 user accounts model (2 normal users, 1 admin)

Ubuntu :: Point A Domain Name To Server And User Accounts?

Aug 26, 2010

I am thinking of getting a domain name or ten I do not know were to point the domain to?

and what do I need to setup if a user wants a domain name to point to his account on the server? ok more like I want to have a few domains pointing to my user accounts I have setup on the server..can I do this directly or do I need a server domain first before users can get a domain name?

I have a basic setup user web space and ftp and mysql setup

what extra would I have to install or not to be able to get a domain pointed to my server and/or user accounts?

I don't seem to be able to find anything specific on how to set this up anywhere.

Server :: User Accounts And Accountability

Aug 19, 2009

We have a web server and are trying to meet a clients requirementes around accountability.Basically, everything in the system should be accomplished using user accounts that are individually identifiable. So basically, no root user, since that's anonymous.So how should we set up these user accounts?Being administrators, we want them to have easy access to files not owned by them, such as ones uploaded using FTP accounts or via apache.We want to be as secure as possible though.

My current thought is to add them to the root group so they have full read access throughout the system, and add them to sudo, but I worry that gives them too much control.

Ubuntu Security :: Disable Listing Of User Accounts In 'Switch From'

May 12, 2010

Once again, nobody seems to understand security properly when they decide to add nifty new features. After upgrading to 10.04 from 9.10, I now have a listing of all the user accounts under "Switch from" when I go the the logout menu at the upper right side of the task bar. This is a terrible security hole that should never have been allowed in the first place, and is just as annoying as the default behavior of listing all the user accounts on the login screen.

General :: Creating New User Accounts / Security?

Feb 21, 2011

I am looking at creating two user accounts for "contract system admins"..These guys will be performing sys admin duties for a sever -- however, I am still concerned about security of data. For example, the server contains password information for our database, etc.Besides making them sign an NDA, etc. what other security mechanisms could I put in place to ensure that they don't just go buck wild. For example, when someone makes a sudo command, is this logged?

what are some recommendations for general security practices?

Software :: Subversion Using Bugzilla User Accounts?

Dec 13, 2010

I am trying to make subversion to use the user account from bugzilla. I surf the net and found many threads related but most of them are out-of-dated. I have install the following software on ubuntu10.10

1. apache2 -- apt-get install apache
2. subversion -- apt-get install subversion
3. bugzilla3 -- apt-get install bugzilla3
4. libapache2-mod-auth-mysql -- apt-get install libapache2-mod-auth-mysql

After installing those softwares needed, I edited the conf file on /etc/apache2/mods-available/dav_svn.conf

Code:

<Location /svn>
DAV svn
SVNParentPath /svnroot
SVNListParentPath On

Slackware :: Migrating User Accounts From SLES To 13.0

Mar 19, 2010

I've just rebuilt a server that had SLES10 to Slackware64 13.0. I wanted to keep all users and their passwords, so I copied all user entries in the old SLES /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow files to the corresponding new Slackware files. It turns out that the passwords are not interpreted correctly. I presume that SLES uses a different hashing function than slackware. Is there an easy way to convert these hashes, or will I have to reset all passwords and force users to change at login?

Ubuntu :: User Accounts And Groups Not Listed In Account Admin Tool?

May 7, 2010

I recently ran into a situation where the ftp user account suddenly could not login. I used the User and Groups system tool to check the user account and reset the password. I then attempted to use ftp and login with the new password and still could not. I then went to check the permissions on the folder and found that the system partition was full, so using gpartd I was able to resize the system partition.

However this still did not fix the ftp login problem. When I opened the User and Groups tool again, all users,including my main account, except root are no longer displayed and all groups are not showing. If I try to add the original ftpuser account I get the message that the user already exists. And my main account works for login still. If I add a new user, it is not displayed in the list either.

If I do a cat /etc/passwd I see all the users listed including the new one I created and cat /etc/group displays all the groups and everything looks like the users are still associated with the correct groups. I can use passwd to change the account password without error and I can use adduser to add another user. Howerver no users are listed in the User and Groups tool and users still can not login to ftp. I can reinstall proftp if needed but I would like to be able to use the User and Groups tool to administer users again.

PS: Forgot that just before encountering the ftp login problem, Update Manager and some updates listed that I attempted to install but got an error and didn't have time to check why. Now I know that the partition was full.

Ubuntu Networking :: Mounting Samba Shares On A Box With Multiple User Accounts?

Jul 29, 2010

I setup samba file sharing to auto mount in fstab. Everything works great except when a computer has more than on user account.

The folders in mnt are owned by root and ownership changes to the first user account no matter what user logs in. So only the first user can edit files in the mounted share.

Anyone got a clue why this is happening? Seems the mount folders should be changing ownership to the user that is logged in.

Fedora Security :: Add & Delete User Accounts Script?

Sep 25, 2009

way to automate adding and removing users from 10 different Fedora 7 servers. We use them as print servers and our users have a user name and password to authenticate with when printing. We also use Samba to talk to a W2k3 server that tracks and charges the users for what they print. The set up was done by a vendor and after 6 months of being in production the scripts they created has flaws.

I need a way for a script to run as often as possible that will remove, change, or delete user accounts from the servers and from Samba. how to most effectively achieve this?

It would be ideal to have a file that gets written to when a change needs to be made then a script to make these changes?

Fedora Security :: Few User Accounts Created - Cannot Be Deleted?

Jan 1, 2011

My Linux is Fedora release 13. I found there are a few users created not by me. I am not sure if the system got hacked somehow. Then the hackers created these users, i.e. (1) oracle, (2) exim, (3) test, (4) cox. I tried to delete all of these four users by using "usrdel" command but the system said "I cannot delete these users as the users are logging in". If my system got hacked ?? or these users are created by the system itself?

General :: Symbolic Links Between User Accounts - Cannot Get To Work

Jan 7, 2011

I have been using a cron job to duplicate a folder into another users account every day and someone suggested using symbolic links instead although I cannot get them to work. In summary user GAMER generates log files that they want to access via HTTP, however I only have a web-server in the user account SERVER, in the past I would copy the logs folder from GAMERS account into SERVER/public_html/. and then chmod the files so the server could access them. Trying to use symbolic links I set up a link from root (as only root can access both accounts) I used: ln -s /home/GAMER/game/logs/ /home/SERVER/public_html/logs

However it seems that only root can use this link, I tried chmoding the link, all the files in the gamers /game/logs/*, /game/logs itself to 777 as well as changing chown and chgrp to server the files still cannot be read. When viewed from servers account my shell shows the link and where it is to hi-lighted in black with red text. /home/GAMER/game/ (chmod & chgrp) drwxrwxrwx 3 SERVER SERVER 4096 2011-01-07 15:46 logs
/home/SERVER/public_html (chmod -h & chgrp -h)

Red Hat / Fedora :: All User Accounts Including Root Got Disabled?

Apr 9, 2010

I'm having a CentOS 4.4 X86_64 server. Without any warning all users account including root got disabled. As the server was still logged in as root, i was able to enable all the users account. But for root i couldn't.Without thinking i rebooted the server and except root, other users can log in to the server. I should've tried to enable root account from the /etc/passwd. But now i realize its too late for that.Now i want to change from root: x:0:0:root:/root:/bin/false to root: x:0:0:root:/root:/bin/bash. Can anyone guide me to accomplish this or is there any other way to fix this?
