I'm running Ubuntu 11.04 (guest) on Windows 7 (host) with the guest additions installed. I have an auto-mount folder that maps to my D: drive on the host which I can access using sudo ls /media/sf_D_DRIVE - however, even when my user (ross) is a member of the vboxsf group I get a permission denied error when attempting to explore it. I have restarted since adding my user to the vboxsf group.
This should work because I am a member of the group (which has rwx rights), so why doesn't it?
ross@panther:~$ ls -l /media total 8 drwxrwx--- 1 root vboxsf 8192 2011-07-03 22:24 sf_D_DRIVE ross@panther:~$ ls -l /media/sf_D_DRIVE/ ls: cannot open directory /media/sf_D_DRIVE/: Permission denied
I installed samba and set one of the folders on my desktop to share with my win7pc. However, I'm having some difficulty getting it to work. If anyone can provide some insight, I would be very grateful.
Both my ubuntu-pc and my win7-pc belong to the same workgroup. Each pc can ping the other. The ubuntu-pc can "see" that the win7 pc is part of the network; but it cannot communicate with the win7 pc. The Win7-pc does not show that the ubuntu-pc is part of the network.
The problem I am facing is, with the Samba server configuration.I have configured Samba server with a folder shared between server and client machines. I have tried downloading data from the shared folder on the server to the client machine which is successfully downloaded, however I am not able to upload any data to the shared folder in the samba server.
I have a Linux Box running Fedora 13, it has Samba installed, and I have configured it, I also have a Windoze 7 PC, I want to be able to access the Windoze PC's files from my Linux Box, and vice versa, but when I try to open the Windoze PC in the network on my Linux Box, it asks for my Username and Password, I enter them, the box goes away then pops back up asking for them again... and on the Windoze PC, I find my Linux on the network, open it, it asks for my username and password, I enter them, and it lets me in, but then when I try opening my shared folder, it gives me: "You do not have permission to access \LINUX Shared Folder. Contact your network administrator to request access".
I have everything networked properly, as far as I can tell, both computers see each other... I can use putty to port in and use my Linux machine (Debian 4). When I go to map network drive on my XP machine, I can see the computer, but not the shared folder. After some googling I found that i have to create my Windows user name ont he Linux machine as a user as well. Unforunately, that user is 'Administrator'. So I told Linux to force user, and it created it, and did smbpasswd command and added the user to the samba list. Still nothing.
I have created a shared folder via nautilus. I can not access it, because it asks me for user name and password again and again. I'm sure both username and password are exactly right. But I can not access the folder. Only when I check "Allow guest user access" it will allow me to access my data, Which is not secure enough for me.
We want to fix our data folders structre in Samba, for example our folders would be like as Data/Group A/2010 /A.We want all our users can work only in folder A and no one can create any files in data, GroupA, 2010 folders. Similarly no one can delete these basic folders. However users can create further folders in A as required.
i have created an folder inside my redhat server. and i shared it via samba and mapped that shared folders inside 5 windows machine. now the problem i am facing is, if any one create a file in that mapped drive the other user cant edit that same file. but he can read it. only for files not folders.
i gave full permission to that folders and subfolders and in smb file i gave readable writable browsable permissions. and i disabled se linux and firewall
I successfully installed Samba, but have problem with access to any shared folder on my secondary drive. If I try access secondary drive with admin user, everything is fine. If with another account try to access via samba to shared folder on partition with Ubuntu, everything is fine again. Every folder has set privileges to read&write to everyone, so shouldn't be problem here.
I'm setting up a network between 2 pc's where the one should act like "file server" and a normal pc to surf on internet.called ORLA-DESKTOP and the other pc is called OLGA-DESKTOP a pc connecting to the server and automounting the shared folder to the desktop Both pc's run ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx The shared folder is located on the server in /home/orla/svenson
ORLA-DESKTOP have 2 users "olga" and "orla" in a group called "svenson" OLGA-DESKTOP have 1 registered user "olga" also in group called "svenson"
users on ORLA-DESKTOP can read/write/append and so on and fully manage everything in the shared folder.But on OLGA-DESKTOP the user can make a file on the pc and then drag'n'drop the file the the shared folder, and can also delete files in the shared folder. but cannot create a file directly into the folder like on ORLA-DESKTOP I have 3 configuration files made. 2 for automounting, Located on OLGA-DESKTOP 1 for samba server configurations located on the server ORLA-DESKTOP
The first one is /etc/fstab
# /etc/fstab: static file system information. # # Use 'blkid -o value -s UUID' to print the universally unique identifier # for a device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name # devices that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).
To sum it all up the real problem is that OLGA-DESKTOP can't append to files in the shared folder. but users on the server have no troubles doing it..
I spent all day learning some concepts of Samba which I left while preparing for RHCE.One of them is how to permanently mount (fstab entry) windows shared folder.Manually mount command is running fine for me.
I have been having off and on issues with my samba file shares. I am sharing a NTFS formated hard drive where the mount point is in my home directory, as well as a printer connected via USB. I am to the point where printing works (using it as an ipp print share, samba is configured for it, but I don't know if it works or not), and I can access the shared folder from Windows, but I can't access the shared folder from any Ubuntu machine. I get the error:
I currently have a Samba share on a Debian 7 system. This share was only ever used by Windows systems on the network.
I just finished setting up a Debian 8 system with Xfce, and now I would like to connect to the share. I already installed gvfs-backends and gvfs-bin. When I go to Thunar file manager, and click browse network, I'm presented with a "Windows Network" shortcut. When clicked it says: Failed to open "Windows Network". Failed to retrieve share list from server: No such file or directory.
When I boot up, or come out of standby, etc, it takes about a minute for my Windows shares on Win 7 to show up under Network. Is there anything I can try that will make this initial connection faster? Either on Debian or the Win7 machine? I have the latest Debian vanilla. This is over wifi. My other devices list the shares right away.
how to get clients connecting to an office printer. during a migration from windows server to debian/samba.
5 windows XP machines one Windows Server 2003 machine, PDC of the old domain One debian Samba PDC (of TEST domain)/print server (with CUPS installeD) running in a virtual machine hosted by the windows server One Toshiba eStudio 3511 printer
Using the CUPS control panel, I've been able to autodetect and add the printer, and it appears as an available share in SWAT for samba. However, the driver isn't perfect. CUPS could only supply drivers for the 3510c, not the 3511.
However, clients on the TEST domain are unable to access it. Doing so gives an error about a local policy preventing a connection to the print queue. I've tried googling this error and the fix that comes up in every result about changing a point and print policy setting, does not work.
however, I've been able to work around the issue. by first logging in as local administrator, navigating to the domain server, then inputting the domain root account credentials at the prompt. That allows me to attempt to connect to printers, but with a different error
"The server for the printer does not have the correct driver installed...."
I very strongly suspect that the 3510 driver actually will work, but it's just not being shared properly. The printer driver share folder is /var/lib/samba/printers, and that directory contains only a few empty subfolders. CUPS did not place the driver there as I would expect, and that is where clients are looking for it.
The thing is, I have no idea where CUPS DID put the driver.
On the old domain, the printer uses drivers for es4511, and looking on the toshiba site, this seems to be what they provide. The Toshiba Site provides a huge variety of drivers, including several windows ones, a universal driver, and a CUPS PPD. Cups asks for an optional PPD during install and I tried supplying that. It said installed successfully, but didn't change anything.
I've tried pasting the windows drivers into /var/lib/samba/printers/W32X86 too, and likewise with other drivers from toshiba's site. but this doesn't change anything either, so I'm at a bit of a loss.
how to install/setup drivers on a samba PDC, for windows machines?
Also relevant, my smb.conf: anyone see any possible causes of problems? # Samba config file created using SWAT # from UNKNOWN () # Date: 2010/08/19 13:03:07
I have two partitions: one for Ubuntu 64-bit and another one with the format NTFS only for keeping documents. I have shared one folder of this NTFS partition, but every time I reboot the PC (or shutdown and start again for that matter) the folder is no longer shared.Why?How can I prevent this folder to be un-shared when I reboot the computer?
I wanted to enable file sharing in for one of my folders under the home directory. I noticed that the 'not shared' and 'shared' always defaulted back to 'not shared'. And now I see what looks like an electrical plug icon symbol over the folder icon symbol like I might see used for some of the root folders. What does the new icon indicate about the folder attributes and why does file sharing default to 'not shared'?
I am attempting to make a shared folder for people that VPN into the network. This folder needs to be accessible to windows and mac machines. So far I have the VPN through ppptd working. I just don't know how to make a folder. I feel like this should be fairly easy. I am using Lucid Lynx server edition.
I have two computers set up, one is running Ubuntu 9.04 and the other running Windows 7 Professional. I have a bunch of shared files from Windows 7 (which I am normally able to access from any Windows 7 or Windows XP machine on my network) but I can't access them from Ubuntu.I have tried going to Places > Network > Windows Network, but I receive the error "Unable to mount locations Failed to retrieve share list from server"I have also found another recommendation for accessing a windows server, via Places > Connect to Server, but I receive another error message there, "Cannot display location "smb://..." No application is registered as handling this file."Could anyone explain what my problem is and how I could fix it? I really wish I could figure this stupid thing out myself, but it's linux.. it's not meant to be understood by anyone >.<
I have written an application which has more than 6 threads.Two threads share a common linked list. Out of two threads one thread reads the linked list node and other thread writes to linked list node.I am using pthread_mutex_lock() API to achieve synchronisation between having access to common linked list. The problem is the first thread which reads the linked list accesses the mutex faster making other thread to starve.
I want both the thread to have an access to mutex. It should not happen that always first thread locks, releases and relocks it. The first thread almost require to access the link list every 5 msec which is causing second thread not to gain the mutex.How should I fix this? For information, I am running this application on PXA270 ARM platform.
I want to share my /home/myname/Public/ directory with other users on my system. The problem I am having is that it seems impossible to do so. I can't use a hard link because it's a directory and I can't use a soft link because the target directory can't be found by anyone unable to read my home directory.
So far, the only solutions I can see are:
1) To move everything from my Public directory to one lower on the directory tree (something like /home/Public) and then symlink to that as /home/myname/Public and allow everyone else to do the same.
2) To use something like samba to share the folder, even if only locally.
is doable because /home and /home/myname are on the same volume but there are times on my system when that is not true (I have users with their home directories on thumbdrives and external HDDs for instance and keeping their public files on a separate volume really isn't an option).
