Debian Configuration :: File Access Logs - Functionality Like Already Built Into Samba?

Sep 7, 2010

wants some sort of logging capability on the system. to have a log of every change to every file, although that might be a bit unwieldy. perhaps a simpler compromise would be some way of monitoring a few specific folders, and tracking all changes to them, including the user that did so. Particularly important is that it should be possible to work with access through samba, as we want to track what users on the network are creating or changing files. Is there functionality like this already built into debian or samba? is there a useful additional app to gather this information? or am I going to need to be grep'ing log files to present something useable?

Debian Configuration :: Awstats Access To Apache Logs?

Mar 10, 2011

In a squeeze box, I installed awstats and it's working like a charm. Its cron job update the awstats database every 10 minutes (as it runs as root). But I would like to be able to update the statistics from the browser as well. So I setup everything as required and I gave "read" access to "others" to every apache log file. Now, a couple of questions came to my mind:

1. Am I compromising server's security giving "read" access to "others" to apache log files?

2. Instead of giving "read" access to "others", I could add www-data user to adm group (as apache log files are owned by root:adm and permissions are rw-r----). Is this more secure than giving "read" access to "others"? 3. If the option would be giving "read" access to "others" at the end, a log file would be owned by root:adm and its permissions be rw-r--r--. As apache rotates its log files, when Apache create a new log file, does it preserve the permissions (rw-r--r--) or create it with the default permissions (rw-r-----)?

Debian Configuration :: Samba - Cannot Access Server After Upgrade

Mar 12, 2016

Following yesterday's and then today's upgrade of my Debian 8 32-bit system (among other things to samba 2:4.1.17+dfsg-2+deb8u2 (yesterday: ...deb8u1)) I cannot connect my Mint 17.3 laptop to the server anymore. Were there any changes to smb.conf regarding authentication or other aspects that might lead to this problem? I am enclosing part of my smb.conf. By the way - I also have trouble using ssh to connect to the Debian machine, such as the ssh-command taking "for ever" and then getting the message "Write failed: Broken pipe" when entering an ls-command on the command line.

Debian Configuration :: Access And Connecting To SAMBA Are Too Slow

Mar 29, 2016

Let me introduce myself, my name is Carlos Alegría from Chile and I'm System administrator for a educational Institute. We use samba+ldap, for login accounts and file sharing but we not use samba with PDC.

Long time ago at the 2009 year, I was Installing the same system and this worked perfectly. But on our summer the hard disk of server has broken, so i was need installing all the system again. So the problem is with SAMBA, when i connect to the network resource, this is to slow, and when i try transfer files are slow.

My sistem is on Debian 8 Jessie and the Samba Version is 2:4.1.17+dfsg-2+deb

Code: Select all[global]

   netbios name = Shinigami

Debian Configuration :: Access Remote Samba Share Gigolo Way

Jul 18, 2011

I've got a fresh Wheezy/Xfce install.I'm trying to access a remote samba share the gigolo way. It is an external USB hard drive connected to my router. I can access it read only using the following URL with Icedove: smb://bbox/

Anyway, this is just to try and give might-be-useful information, but ultimately, I don't really want to use fusesmb. I would rather have the gigolo way working, allowing local network shares browsing, auto-connect, etc.

Ubuntu Networking :: Accessing Server With Built In VPN Functionality?

Aug 10, 2010

I've seen many posts about setting up VPN's but my doubt goes further. I just need access to the local network of my office from a Windows XP (which of course is outside the LAN). I would like this PC to have access to the whole LAN, but what I really need is it to access to an Ubuntu Server (e.g. 192.168.0.10). The router is a Netgear DG834, which has a built in VPN functionality. So, is it enough if I set it up? Do I need to install any VPN server in Ubuntu? What if I want to access to another computer in the LAN? Where should I start?

Debian Configuration :: Samba - Add The Subtitle File

Aug 1, 2011

I'm using Xfce 4.8, which now provides built-in samba browing in thunar. This works like a charm. I can browse a samba share (external HD connecter to router via USB). Yet it appears to me now that the support is limited to thunar. I mean double clicking on a file allows me to open/edit that file if and only if the software itself has samba support. In practice, double-clicking on a movie opens it with vlc thanks to vlc's own smb support. Even then, I can't find a way to add the subtitle file. I reckon that to use the share transparently, I would need to mount it the "mount" way. Either on a mount point like /mnt/hard_drive or something like .gvfs/hard_drive.

Is my understanding correct ? Is that my only option? Considering the disk won't be switched on at startup, fstab is not the solution. Would gigolo be the right choice? I spent some time trying gigolo a few days ago, following an easy tuto found on the web and it didn't work as expected. If needed I could give it another try.

I am trying to configure samba for a stripped down file server. I am running debian with command line only. My problem is that I cannot unmask samba.

See below:

I have tried "sudo systemctl unmask samba.service". I receive no errors however it does not actually unmask. I can't find anything online regarding a service stuck on masked status.

Debian Configuration :: Squeeze Update To Network-manager Breaks Functionality

Feb 7, 2010

I have just updated my Squeeze system. The update included a newer version of network-manager (and it can not be more than a few hours old). After the update all network functionality on my machine (via knetwork-manager) is broken. The GUI applet has no effect.

Hence can anyone help me: a) Downgrade network-manager by one version; b) Find out what is causing knetworkmanager to break; c) See if the problem is with knetworkmanager or network-manager.

Debian Configuration :: File Share Unavailable From A Reboot Until Restart Samba

Jul 3, 2011

I am having slight issue with setting up file sharing. I have a windows 7 pc and hp proliant microserver running. I have a raid array which I am using as a share for storing music, pictures etc. When I reboot the debian server I can't connect to the server from the windows 7 PC (I have mapped a network drive) until I go on to the server and restart samba with /etc/init.d/samba restart - then everything works fine. I can ping the server with both ip and hostname but the network drive does not connect - this is straight after a reboot. Is the /etc/init.d/samba restart doing something differently to when the server boots? I have read several posts relating to printer sharing issues which point to samba not starting before cups so I am wondering if samba is starting before some of the relevant networking services.

Debian Configuration :: Kernel Driver Support: Built-in Or Loadable?

Jun 26, 2010

Is there a way to programmatically determine whether a particular driver support is built-in rather than a loadable module? I'd be grateful if somebody would share how. I have written a shell script using the RTC (real time clock). I can check whether the rtc-cmos kernel module exists and load the module accordingly as needed, but I don't know how to determine when the driver is built-in. Of course, if the driver is built-in then the module does not exist.

I seem to recall there is a method to query the kernel config file (/proc/config.gz), through which I probably could grep for the CONFIG_RTC_DRV_CMOS parameter. I also can check whether /proc/driver/rtc exists. If that file exists then either the driver is built-in or the module was loaded.I realize the rtc-cmos driver is built-in with the standard Debian kernel build, but I still would like a way to query where the driver is supported.Is there a straightforward or direct method to query the kernel whether a particular driver is built-in?

Debian Configuration :: Nvidia-kernel-source Was Not Built Successfully

Apr 26, 2011

Squeeze-beta was my first foray into Debian, and I love it. I changed my setup to a rolling setup with testing (Wheezy), and have done that for several months. Lately, I got a new kernel, but it reboots to a terminal rather than GUI (I'm a simple laptop user). I think it's because of the NVIDIA drivers, and here is what I've tried (meanwhile, I'm using the previous kernel):

# apt-get install module-assistant nvidia-kernel-common
# m-a auto-install nvidia-kernel${VERSION}-source
A blue screen appears that says:

module-assistant error message Bad luck, the kernel headers for the target kernel version could not be found and you did not specify other valid kernel headers to use.

You can try:

module-assistant prepare
or
apt-get install linux-headers-2.6.38-2-amd64

I have done both, rebooted, and I still get the blue screen. I also see this message:

nvidia-kernel-source was not built successfully, see:

/var/cache/modass/nvidia-kernel-source*buildlog*

...and I have copy/pasted the file below (which omits lines 101-200 because this message is too long then):

make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/modules/nvidia-kernel'

Debian Configuration :: NVidia Driver Fails With Built Kernel?

Jul 30, 2011

I've posted here before (viewtopic.php?f=5&t=66322) about problems arising from my attempts to get an nVidia driver to work with my custom kernel. Now those problems are all fixed, and I'm back to where I was: the built kernel boots fine, but the nVidia driver fails.

The custom kernel is as near to the stock one as I can make it, I'm just trying to find a working build process at present, before trying to build a later-version kernel.

I used sgfxi with "-! 40" to build the nVidia driver for my custom kernel; it reported that everything was fine.

Debian Configuration :: Built In Bluetooth Adapter Doesn't Find Devices

Oct 12, 2015

I've followed the guide at URL.... but my computer is unable to find any Bluetooth devices. Whether I'm using the command line or gnome-bluetooth, I don't get any results. If I plug in a cheap USB adapter, I'm able to connect and use the devices.My computer is a HP ProBook 4330s running Debian Jessie. And as far as I can tell the Bluetooth adapter is a Ralink rt3592 combination Wi-Fi and Bluetooth PCI card. The Wi-Fi works fine, but when i try to connect to a Bluetooth device, I get no search results.

Debian Configuration :: Enabling Persistent Logs With Systemd

Dec 1, 2015

How to enable persistent logging with systemd? I find it really weird that all this machinery that is systemd doesn't store persistent logs, what if I'm trying to retrieve some information regarding previous boots?

For instance: I have random suspend issues, after rebooting the computer there's no trace left in the logs of what happened, and furthermore (at least in Jessie) I can no longer see a pm-suspend log.

So, at first it sounds like all you have to do is edit journald.conf setting #Storage=auto to "persistent" and create the /var/log/journal directory, but then reading here /usr/share/doc/systemd/README.Debian

Code: Select allEnabling persistent logging in journald
=======================================

To enable persistent logging, create /var/log/journal and set up proper permissions:

install -d -g systemd-journal /var/log/journal
setfacl -R -nm g:adm:rx,d:g:adm:rx /var/log/journal

and here [URL] ....

There are two main reasons why I decided to not enable persistent logging just yet ....

We did get corrupt journal files in the past where the journal then no longer worked at all [1]. With volatile you can just reboot and have a clean state again. Admittedly, the journal has seen a lot of improvements in the mean time and hopefully is more robust, so this point is no longer true.

We still install rsyslog by default. That means we get store them twice. This is something we don't want to do atm.

Debian Configuration :: Corrupted (permanent) Systemd Logs In Jessie

Apr 22, 2016

I've enabled permanent systemd logs in Jessie, and after a while I'm seeing messages about corrupted logs when checking with journalctl --verify

Code: Select allInvalid tail monotonic timestamp 0%
File corruption detected at /var/log/journal/..........

as far as I can see, there is currently no option to delete this files from within systemd facilities, is that correct?

Should they be deleted manually, or just left alone?

Apparently I can still read all older logs regardless of such reported corruption, using the journalctl --boot -n option.

EDIT:Another thing coming to mind is that this has been happening for me not only in Jessie but in every systemd-based distro that I've tried, once permanent logging is enabled: is that some kind of systemd bug?

What would exactly mean

Code: Select allFile corruption detected at /var/log/journal/38d5e6b861134eadb37cbd64b98a66bd/user-65534@d1745ac610d2459f940a24f27abd6d47-0000000000000f14-00051b8d2dabdcac.journal:000000 (of 8388608 bytes, 0%)

in particular, the 0% of 8388608 bytes part ?

Debian Configuration :: Jessie LVM - Full Disk / Large Logs And GParted

Sep 23, 2015

So, my issues since upgrading to Jessie seem to compound. When I fix one issue, two more arise. Right now, I have a full system disk. How it got so full. So I started poking around. I ran

Code: Select all find / -type f -size +50M -exec ls -lh {} ; | awk '{ print $NF ": " $5 }'

Found a few files I could delete, and did, but I also found Code: Select all/var/log/syslog.1: 33G
/var/log/messages: 33G
/var/log/user.log: 33G

What I find strange is that they're all exactly 33G each. So that accounts for the missing 99GB I deleted them, however only recovered 27Gb. Whats weird is when I type df -h I get

Code: Select allFilesystem      Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/dm-0       106G   74G   27G  74% /
udev             10M     0   10M   0% /dev
tmpfs           3.2G  9.7M  3.2G   1% /run
tmpfs           7.9G     0  7.9G   0% /dev/shm
tmpfs           5.0M  4.0K  5.0M   1% /run/lock
tmpfs           7.9G     0  7.9G   0% /sys/fs/cgroup
/dev/sda1       228M   27M  189M  13% /boot
/dev/sdb1       1.9T   62G  1.8T   4% /media/ntfs
tmpfs           1.6G     0  1.6G   0% /run/user/0

What are the tmpfs's and how can I reclaim that space, and what is /dev/dm-0 and why is that taking up so much space?

I have 2 LVGs vgdisplay -v

Code: Select allroot@SETV-007-WOWZA:~# vgdisplay -v
    DEGRADED MODE. Incomplete RAID LVs will be processed.
    Finding all volume groups
    Finding volume group "WOWZASERVER"

[Code] ....

After deleting the log files, I was able to regain access to my GDM session. But I still cant find out what /dev/dm-0 is, and where all the 75 GB is being taken up.

I just noticed, however, even though I can access the drive A-OK via browser, terminal, and web services (Our wowza) when I enter gParted I get this error for sda, my primary OS drive!

Code: Select all  Libparted Bug Found!

Error informing the kernel about modifications to partition /dev/sda2 -- Invalid argument. This means Linux won't know about any changes you made to /dev/sda2 until you reboot -- so you shouldn't mount it or use it in any way before rebooting

Now that I'm in gParted I see 3 partitions: [URL] ....

It reports now, that I have used ALL of my disk space.

Post Log delete, and fresh reboot, this is what Code: Select alldf -h outputs

Code:
Select all Filesystem      Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/dm-0       106G  8.7G   92G   9% /
udev             10M     0   10M   0% /dev
tmpfs           3.2G  9.8M  3.2G   1% /run
tmpfs           7.9G   80K  7.9G   1% /dev/shm
tmpfs           5.0M  4.0K  5.0M   1% /run/lock

Debian Configuration :: Reboot Both The Server And The Client Machines Every Time Change The SAMBA Configuration?

Apr 5, 2010

I am *finally* getting around to rebuilding my file-sharing computer. I'll be sharing files with both Linux and Windoze machines. It's a home network, so there's nothing fancy needed. I know I have to tweak my smb.conf file until I'm satisfied with the features and security. I'm using SWAT and I'm starting with a bare-bones conf file. It's not secure but I can see the server and selected files/directories from my other Linux box.

My really dumb question is, do I have to reboot both the server and the client machines every time I change the SAMBA configuration? I thought I just had to stop and restart the SAMBA service in the SWAT software - but then the server disappears from my client. It looks like I need to reboot both machines for the client to see the server.

CentOS 5 :: Samba, Smbusers File, Anonymous NFS Access?

* why is it necessary map unix users to samba users?

* what purpose does this mapping serve?

* does the umask of the unix user limit the samba user it is mapped to when creating files/directories? what about anonomous access?

* why are files created via anonymous access owned by 'nobody'?

* how can I control what user and permissions files/directories are created with?

Debian Configuration :: Cannot Use RSAT With Samba PDC

May 1, 2016

I had set up as a NT4 style PDC. There is no longer any PDC/BDC dynamic with Samba4 and MS AD support.

I purged samba packages and winbind et al and provisioned the domain correctly, and everything works well now.

What follows is the original post.

==========================================================================================
After much struggling with DNS settings, I finally got a basic samba AD controller up and running, and then that's about as far as I got.

As soon as I tried to use the RSAT I found that I could not connect RSAT to the AD server while logged in as root.

The error I get is:

Naming information cannot be located because: The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted. Contact your system adminsiotrator to verify that your domain is properly configured and is currently online.
