Fedora Networking :: Samba Not Working On 15 - Read / Write Privileges
Jun 19, 2011
i have a windows xp machine with filesharing enabled and the shares set up and ready to go i have a laptop on which i did a fresh install of fedora 15 with samba and all the necessary packages to make the fedora machine a samba client to the windows machine.
my problem is that when i go into nautilus and click on the network tab it shows nothing not one single computer...the fedora machine doesnt even show up.....i have done all the tests i can think of and confirmed that the smb service is running, the nmb service is running, samba is allowed thru the firewall and all the computers are in the same workgroup..yet neither one can see each other even more frustrating is when i go to mount a windows share thru the terminal it shows a successful mount (as i type in the command hit enter and recieve no errors) BUT when i go into the mount directory and open the new directory i made for the samba share it shows nothing there not even when i go into the windows machine and add a file to the shared folder...PLUS for some strange reason the /mnt directory already had two empty files called "home" and "boot" already in it i have no clue what thats about but ok, then on the windows side i go into "network places" and click on "show workgroup computers" and the windows machine will show up but not the fedora machine.
these are the commands i have used to install and get samba working- "yum install samba system-config-samba samba-client cifs-utils" "service smb start" anyway until i can figure this out i have decided to start from scratch and erase samba from the machine completely and i am hoping that maybe some one can read all this and come up with some ideas...maybe there is just something i forgot when i was setting this up yesterday its possible i just went to fast and skipped a step again all i want is the fedora 15 machine to just be a samba client with read/write priviledeges
I am developing a program that uses libusb-1.0 on a FC14 x64 system. I solved the compile and link issues, but I now have a problem with user privileges when I try to get device handles. The problem appears to be in the mounting of the usbfs. Is the an accepted fix to giving users read/write privileges for all usb devices?
I have a pc with ubuntu 10.04 installed, and a fold shared on my user directory. Which permissions that I have to edit, so every time I create or edit a document (any type: openoffice,...), that document can have read and write privileges on another computer in my home network so I can work on it?
I'm trying to configure a per user samba login for full access to the user's home directory.Mounting the shared directory works flawless when mounting from Windows. I can read, write, create without problems. However, when mounting from Linux the shared space is readonly.
I have 4 machines; all multiboot. I want each machine to have full rw access to file shares on each other machine, AND, full rw access to the other partitions on the same machine home folder for UNbooted OS's. I imagine Samba will NOT handle all these configurations? What else do I have to do, so that, for example, if I have 2 machines on, and I boot up a third machine in another room, it will auto mount the other 2 machines' shares, and it export it's own shares to the other 2 machines? I want also each machine to have full rw access to shares on the UNbooted partitions of each machine.
Ive managed to install samba, I've shared a folder. I can access from a Windows 7 machine via \ubuntupublic. I can put files in the folder form the ubuntu machine and edit them on the windows box. I can put files in the folder/share from the Windows box but then I cannot edit them on the Ubuntu machine (they are read only and have a "Lock" over them). I can fix this by going to the properties of the file/folder in Windows and manually assigning "Everybody" full control (then the lock disappears and all is well.) I want read/write access to all the folders contents from both machines all the time (security is NOT a concern I WANT the permissions wide open) what am I doing wrong?
Unless your distro has taken care of it Centos 5.5, you'll need to create a user with a password and read/write privileges for program database. You can do this using the MySQL command line client if you are familiar with it. Well I am not familiar with it, so I wam wondering how to do it. As well when I run
mysql - p program </usr/share/program/mysql.sql>
It asks for a password. how do i find out this password.
I have a networked raid drive. Thecus 2100. Its running linux, and includes samba sharing. On that I have a folder shared. I can connect to and read and write from nautilus. No problems. However, I can't use other apps through that method. Its not really "mounting" that drive in the sense you'd normally think of (afaik).
If I try to mount the folder, no matter how I have tried so far (-t cifs, smbmount, etc), I can navigate the folders, but if I try to read any file I get a permission error. Looking at the permissions with 'ls -l', everything looks OK. The weird thing is, I can write a file, then read that file back as long as its the same session.
Just now I tried 'smbclient' with no special arguments. Just the server and path url. It asked for my password. Once I was in, I had no trouble getting files. I had a thread about this a while back and there were several links and all sorts of command line options to try, which I did, with no different outcome. I think its got to be something much simpler and more obvious. smbclient and nautilus seem to have no trouble. Anybody know what they're doing differently?
I am working for a community where several people are engaged for 4 different development projects. we are planning to have a samba server to store our data.Now the problem is that I have created a share in which @groupa, @groupb and @groupc are allowed to read and write. But three of the members of @groupb are only allowed to for read permission only.
I have a pdc with a samba file share and have multiple xp workstations that can install programs from the server and share files, but I have 2 new windows 7 machines that I have edited the registries on and joined the domain with but cannot install programs from the pdc even though they have root accounts. I have tried to change folder privileges from the workstations but I am not allowed.
I have an HP GL380 with an MSA20 connected for storage space, we use it as an nas unit. The system is SLES 10. We use both NFS and SMB for file sharing, no special users and so. We are 8-10 users of the machine. We store both large and small files such at thumbnails and disk images.
Now, my problem. I�d like to give more priority for reading files on the server, so a user can look at pictures without problem, and if another user is writing an image file of an disk (10-1000 GB) this writing process should get less priority. The most important is always reading files, to get the job done.
I've been reading for a while about samba but I haven't found a solution to my problem yet.I'd like to know if, the configuration I have in mind, is possible at all ("security = user" is what I'm using now).I want a directory to be: 1) read only for guests and some UNIX users; 2) write for some other UNIX users.
The advantage of this configuration would be that every single user in my LAN (with or without a UNIX account) would be able to read the content of the shared directory Music and I (UNIX user andrea) could manage the folder directly trough samba preserving the correct owner/group and permissions on the new files/folder created.
Notes about my configuration above: 1) as it is now every user gets authenticated by samba as nobody so even I (andrea) cannot write in it; 2) commenting out the line "guest ok = yes" I can authenticate as "andrea" and write in it but guest access is not possible any longer.
I Have Configure Samba server in Centos, I need give permission like for some user(5User) can able to read and write the particular folder, and again i need give some another user(6user) can only read permission for same folder.
I had a F14 samba server working flawlessly now for a quite time. Unexpectedly about a month ago the write speed slowed down around 64kbit/s and that's really slow. I haven't changed any configs, only updated the server. I've troubleshooted this from many angles: -It is not a network issue because sftp writes are good. -It is not a RAID1 issue because write speed from another directory (locally) are good. So basically samba is the only thing left.
Here's example from smb.conf: [MyShare] comment = My share path = /mnt/RAID_share writeable = yes browseable = yes writelist = +smbuser
Here's a snip from logs today: [2011/08/04 09:04:27.509273, 1] smbd/server.c:267(remove_child_pid) Scheduled cleanup of brl and lock database after unclean shutdown [2011/08/04 09:04:47.526336, 1] smbd/server.c:240(cleanup_timeout_fn) Cleaning up brl and lock database after unclean shutdown [2011/08/04 09:17:57.634660, 1] smbd/server.c:267(remove_child_pid) Scheduled cleanup of brl and lock database after unclean shutdown [2011/08/04 09:18:17.635196, 1] smbd/server.c:240(cleanup_timeout_fn) Cleaning up brl and lock database after unclean shutdown .....
How does the read & write request from a command prompt go to usb & retrieve the file ? When a read request is given , I/O manger sends the request to file system manager (FSM) and from FSM to mass storage device drivver and from there to mass storage , is this right in Linux ?
I can't get the samba server to work on a Fedora 13 system. First of all, I've activated the "smb" service. After this, since I couldn't find any samba configuration tool in Gnome, I switched to KDE and launched Menu - Computer - System Settings - Advanced - Samba. I typed in my workgroup and netbios name and added a share (2nd tab). Then I added my user name to the blank list "samba users" (4th tab), which wasn't very effective, because this list is blank again when I leave (OK) and reopen this config tool.
From a windows machine, I can't access this Fedora system. Netbios doesn't work (ping netbios name - ...could not find name...) and trying \IP in the explorer shows an error message "Windows cannot find...". Btw firewall and Selinux are both deactivated.
When I open Dolphin on the Fedora locally and type "smb://localhost" it *does* show a logn window, but no matter what I type in there, it just shows this login windows again after clicking OK.
We have a network with several computer. We have two file servers (don't ask why) an Ubuntu and an XP as well as many clients. Setting shares on Ubuntu was easy and all clients can see them read and write. but I can't get the Ubuntu clients to see the SMB shares on the XP properly. This is my fstab:
I can't see any option for recursive directories in nfs in fedora 13.
This is my set-up:
save and exit.
When i mount the directory /media/Data from another Fedora 13 box i don't have read and write permissions for each and every file. The -R recursive option would be handy unfortunately this option is unavailable. The red hat docs have not been helpful in this respect.
The mounted partition is of the ext3 type. With the nfs-3g type i don't have any issue however most of my directories/partitions are of the ext3 type so i need get it sorted.
I changed my user name id number to the same number on all boxes thus giving me write access. There must be a better solution than this.
I installed SAMBA and SWAT, latest versions. What I want to accomplish is to give Windows users unlimited read/write access to the entire filesystem, eg. (/). Barring that, I'd like to at least be able to configure full access to individual directories.And by "unlimited", I mean being able to edit and delete everything that would be normally accessible only by the root user. I want to grant the Windows users of the shares access as if they were root users.
I've been a Xubuntu/Ubuntu/Lubuntu hobby user for about 18 months now. I started using Linux as a way to revive older computers provide a backup and expand my knowledge of computing. The command line was something new to me but as long as I can find detailed directions on how to do what I want I can usually manage. I set up a Samba server for my home shared network and now I'd like to make the shared drives of that server accessible from outside my network. Via ssh or ftp or some program of the like. I'd like to have it user name and password protected. Configurable user rights would be nice. (read/write/delete/etc) As well as novice user friendly.
My end goal is a server with read/write capability that I will be able to access from work or a friends house or anywhere with an Internet connection and my laptop. I understand about port forwarding and have done so with my home network behind an AT&T U-verse router/modem. I've researched openssh and some ftp setups but they seem like they can be difficult. Now for the questions. Is this task something that can be accomplished without a degree in computer networking? Is there a program(s) that would make this a simpler task? Is this more complex than its worth? How would I go about setting up such a thing?
I have this samba share for ghosting images to (backing up computers at work) and I can read the ghost images just fine from the share, but I am unable to write to the share. From any windows environment I have tried, I get a disk is full error. I have 200GB+ free space, so this is not the actual issue. I believe there is a write permission somewhere that I am overlooking. My setup basically lets me log in under the username samba from a client machine.
Here is my smb.conf file:
#======================= Global Settings ======================= [global] workgroup = discount.local server string = %h server (Samba, Ubuntu)
I've tried chown on /media/Images to make it owned by samba, but it just reverts once I remount the partition. Either that or my eyes are playing tricks on me.
