Fedora Servers :: Setup A Windows File Using 14 With Samba - Get Permission Error
Jul 21, 2011
I am trying to set up a windows file server using fedora 14 with samba. when I go to the a windows machine I can log in the the samba server. When I try to go to the folder I need access to I get and error saying "you might not have permission to use this network resource" I am trying to access my home directory. Directory /home/mike, username mike. As far as I can tell it is not a permission of the directory. I have a user set up in samba that uses the mike user account.
I wanted to setup a local Apache2 server for some programming and testing. I installed and got Apache2 working with PHP, MySQL and all works fine. Now I wanted to add an additional directory to somewhere in my /home. And that's where things went wrong. I went to edit /etc/apache2/sites-available/default. This is it:
Code: You don't have permission to access /po/ on this server. So I go to the logfile; which says this: Code: [Sat May 08 16:43:51 2010] [error] [client 127.0.0.1] (13)Permission denied: access to /po/ denied
I tried a lot of stuff using chmod and chown, but all to no avail. I tried to change the ownership of the /home/name/web to root, and to www-data, I changed file permissions to allow executing the files.
I am accessing network drive (Z:stream) on windows. Now the permission set on stream folder is like chmod -R 777 streams/ means all the files inside stream is at 777 but now i am copying some files from windows to this streams folder but permission on those files are not 777 ,i would like to have permission 777 on those files that copied from windows ...how do i do that??
I'm trying to load a HP Proliant w/ Fedora 11 and setting up as a WFS using Samba. However, I'm a bit confused on how to do it. Right now I have 2 36.4GB drives in RAID 1+0 and 4 146.8GB drives in a RAID 5 config. I wanna use the smaller drive for the OS and the bigger drive for the storage. I've managed to load the OS fine, the problem is I can't figure out how to mount the 4 146.8GB drives as a single logical volume and set Samba to use it. Right now all the RAIDs are setup using the built-in Compaq Smart Array utility (or whatever it's called) that's built into the SCSI hardware or BIOS.
i set up samba and im trying to acces from windows xp. i can see the drive if i go to run and type the ip adress but when i click on the share i get an error that says "sharename" in this case "sam is not accessible" you might not have permission under this network resource. so how do i give myself permissions. I have followed several tutorials tried different types of set up , restart of samba and what not. but still nothing. I should mentioned that i have been at this for 3 days now and still cant get it to work. i have red hat linux 5.1 and window xp proffesional.
I want to use samba for file sharing like on a Windows home network. Actually they are all Linux machines but nfs is too complicated. On my host machine I installed samba and system-config-samba. I created a new share for /home, check marked writable and visible and put access to everybody. For preferences-->server settings--> security the "authentication mode" is set to user, encrypt passwords is no, and guest account is no guest account. Under preferences-->samba users I added myself as a user with the same windows user name as my Linux user name and the same password.
My client is a virtualbox fedora (used for testing purposes but actual clients will be real computers on my home network). I entered the address smb://192.168.1.184. When asked for the user name and password I put my regular user name and password since that was what I set in samba users. However, the password dialog keeps coming up and won't let met into my own computer. If I quit it says something like access is denied. How can I get my home network back? I liked this feature when my home computers ran XP but I switched them to Fedora 12.
Quite a few times i have boot puppy linux live and have tried to copy file from the underlying NTFS windows HD only to get an error like permission denied when i try and copy a file to say a USB stick, i think some files copy but i seem to get permission errors with some files.
I can't seem to connect to it when using windows 7. Both are in the same workgroup (W0RKGR0UP) and I have set DHCP address for the ubuntu box. Is there any other thing that I would still need to edit ? My router address is 192.168.0.1 and the fixed ip for ubuntu box is 192.168.0.103.
I'm trying to setup a Samba network share with a Fedora Directory Server backend. This will be used primarily for Windows users to authenticate before accessing the share. I am using Fedora Core 10 and have all of the latest updates installed. When I try to connect from a Windows machine, I am prompted for a username and password. I enter the username and password of the account I created in Fedora Directory Server in OU=People. The credentials are rejected. At the same time in the log file I see this:
[2009/02/24 16:50:16, 3] auth/auth_sam.c:check_sam_security(282) check_sam_security: Couldn't find user 'Administrator' in passdb. [2009/02/24 16:50:16, 2] auth/auth.c:check_ntlm_password(318) check_ntlm_password: Authentication for user [Administrator] -> [Administrator] FAILED with error NT_STATUS_NO_SUCH_USER
Administrator is the user I created in Fedora Directory Server. If I perform an ldapsearch it will find the user as uid: Administrator so I know it is able to be looked up in FDS. But I'm guessing that's not the problem.
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.
We have a couple of Windows file servers that just share files. It is all they do. We'd like to use Ubuntu on two replacement servers allowing Windows XP and Windows 7 clients to access the files. Our network is active directory based due to Exchange and homegrown .NET apps, so it is important that active directory is used to authenticate the clients. Samba doesn't need to be a pdc or bdc, but provide pass through authentication.I understand that Samba can communicate with active directory through security-ads and security-domain.
Here are my questions to see if I should proceed:1) Folder permissions:If we move all our files to the Ubuntu server how do we set folder permissions and will we see the active directory accounts when we do this?2) Skipping ubuntu accounts: I know the domain and ads allow you to skip creating ubuntu accounts, right? If not, how do you keep the passwords synchronized?3) Easiest way? Is there a very easy way to pull this off that I've missed? My goal is to eliminate the Windows based file servers while ensuring the admin part of it is as easy as possible.To date I've been able to get the sharing to work with an ubuntu account mirroring the active directory account. I've been able to get Samba to talk to the pdc, but not successfully through domain security. ADS security was a complete cluster with winbindd
I have samba allowing only known users, and on the ubuntu side, I have the folder permission 777. I have the same exact samba smb.conf file(locations of course matching new server), but I can't get it to authenticate with the new server(Old server is up and running too) and I'm lost. I thought I had it figured out when I did my last server, but I seem to be missing something on this one.
I have got centos 5.3 running on my system. I have installed vsftpd and created a separate folder to upload files (upload folder created in/var/ftp/pub). From my client end I can download ftp files but when I try to upload files from my client I get a error message 550: permission denied. The upload folder has full permission ie 777. Checked the ftp config file everything looks ok.
Below is marina, a sales rep, and brian, a super user of sorts. id marina: Code: uid=1011(marina) gid=1006(office) groups=1006(office),1005(sales) id nick: Code: uid=1000(brian) gid=1006(office) groups=1006(office),118(admin),1001(full),1002(processing),1003(management),1004(it),1005(sales)
Below is the directory with all the sales reps folders. ls -la: Code: total 60 drwxrwxr-x 15 root it 4096 2011-02-10 20:06 . drwxr-x--- 9 root office 4096 2010-11-19 12:40 .. drwxrwx--- 13 katya full 4096 2010-12-07 12:36 Katya drwxrwx--- 18 lana full 4096 2011-02-08 17:09 Lana drwxrwx--- 23 marina full 4096 2011-02-10 18:09 Marina drwxrwx--- 4 mike full 4096 2011-02-01 12:42 Mike
With this setup marina only be able to browse her folder, but she can browse all folders and has full write access to all folders. This leads me to believe something is up with the smbd.conf file, which is below.
Code: [global] workgroup = COMTREAD null passwords = no server string = Root Server dns proxy = no log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m max log size = 1000 syslog = 0 .....
In this case the valid users directive would not work cause I am not making a share for each user. I had this on other shares like the db2 share. My windows box lagged heavily when I tried to access that share with an invalid user. How to deny users the ability to modify permissions I would also like to do that.
if i try to connect to my samba server ( share ) from my windows xp ( or vista, i've tried both ) it says, that the network share cannot be found. i've installed all necessary rpms on my fedora 10, necessary for running a samba server:
I had an older fedora box (I think it was Core 3) that acted as my file server in my small network (4). It worked fine when I had all XP clients connecting to it. Recently we decided to get all new computers. So now I have a fedora 10 box acting as my file/print server and all Vista Home premium computers as the clients. For the life of me I can not get samba to work. When I try to map the network drives on windows it will not let me authenticate. I install swat and try it that way, still no luck. Here is a copy of my smb.conf file:
Code: # Samba config file created using SWAT # from UNKNOWN # Date: 2009/05/19 21:47:31
[global] workgroup = AIVILANET server string = Bighat Samba Server interfaces = eth0 null passwords = Yes smb passwd file = /etc/samba/smbpasswd passdb backend = tdbsam username map = /etc/samba/smbusers syslog only = Yes announce version = 5.0 name resolve order = hosts wins bcast socket options = TCP_NODELAY IPTOS_LOWDELAY SO_KEEPALIVE SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192 printcap name = CUPS wins support = Yes

First of all I am new user on fedora forum and I love Linux (special Redhat flavours) and want to replace windows into Linux Everywhere. I am having some issue in configuring PDC on Fedora,I want to replace my company Windows Domain controller and file server into fedora file and PDC, I tried from web and through 389-directory server but didn't succeed even once, how to configure PDC with Samba 4 + 389-directory Server, I have heard samba 4 is having awesome support and its better then windows DC, configuring Complete PDC. (Whatever need to configure PDC i.e. DNS, SAMBA 4, SWAT, WEBMIN, 389-Directory Server, Windows sync,).
I have a computer running Fedora 11. I wanted to use samba in my office. So I configured the /etc/samba/smb.conf ,but it did not work well : Windows can find samba,but when I tap in username and password,samba request them again , and the same thing continues in a loop. So I copied another computer's smb.conf (which is also a Fedora 11,samba runs well in this one).I copied this file to /etc/samba/ ,then samba can't satart up . I read from /var/log/samba/log.smbd.log : Unable to open configuration file "/etc/samba/smb.conf": Permission denied Even if I use: chmod 777 /etc/samba/smb.conf
why I can't login samba from Windows:
[global] workgroup = MYGROUP server string = Samba Server Version %v ; netbios name = MYSERVER ; interfaces = lo eth0 192.168.1.99/24
I've got my Samba shares up and running. I can stream files from the server, I can create files on the server, and I can copy files from the server.
Running a Windows program (from a Windows box) directly from the Samba server, however, is turning into a nightmare. I'm getting Access is Denied errors from the Windows box, yet I can copy/create/etc from the entire directory with no problems.
Are there any special permissions I need to run EXE files from a Windows box, located on a Samba share? I've already chmod'd everything to 777, and I show full access when ls -Z is used.
I have recently developed the need for having a file server and am interested in setting up my desktop as a Samba File Server. The problem is that I need to be able to access it from outside networks (physically I'm about 10 miles away from my home network),o I need to also set up some sort of DynDNS service so that I can access the server from anywhere.With this, with setting up a DynDNS, setting up Samba, and setting up my machine to be secure enough for these types of actions. (I just want to make sure it is secure enough since it will need to be detectable from the internet.)
I'm breaking my head on this.I want to create a development environment. This means that I want to be able to create/change files myself, but php should be able to do the same. I installed a lamp-stack using tasksel. Afterwards I installed phpmyadmin. So far so good. Going to http://localhost shows "it works".
Then I created a folder /home/hwc/www and created a new apache site called hwc, disabled default and enabled hwc that points to /home/hwc/www and has the directive AllowOveride All set. But when I go to http://localhost know I get a 403 Permission denied error. I've tried several trings like changing ownership of /home/hwc/www to www-data:www-data, to hwc:www-data, to hwc:hwc, but all to no avail. Even adding www-data to group hwc and hwc to group ww-data did not help. According to other posts at least on of these solutions should have worked, but it did not. I could probably fix it by letting apache run as hwc, but that doesn't seem right.
and I have share1 and its subfolder " subshare " the thing i have to do is that, i have 2 assign user1 and user2 to share1 that means user1 and user2 can only access share1 through password and user3 can access only its subfolder "subshare" i have done this upto first level permission of share1 not able to do for its subfolder "subshare"
I want to setup a file server using Ubuntu, The first thing I want to get off the ground is just simple file shares, is Windows 7 still having problems with Samba or has this been fixed? Secondly does anyone have a plain noob freindly guide on how to setup and get Samba off the ground
