I have been trying to SCP a couple files from my Ubuntu 10.10 machine to a Fedora 12 machine. Before today, did it with out any problems, always worked. Today however; after the SCP is complete from my machine, the file on the other machine is zero bytes, an empty file. The only thing I can remember getting changed was the new kernel that was in the update I did today. But I don't think that would have changed the SCP works.
I am unable to copy files on my machine. For instance, if I have two folders on the desktop and I want to move one folder into another, I get the error message:Error "Not on the same file system". I am using SL5.4.
I need a command-line method of copying files from a Linux box to a Windows machine that is in a domain and requires authentication. I cannot install additional software or services on the Windows XP machine. I can install any software on the Linux machine. I've tried scp, but the connection failed and if my understanding is correct it is because scp requires that the target (windows machine) be running an ssh service. Is there a command-line linux utility that can pass Windows domain user and password and then copy a file from the linux machine to a share on the windows machine?
Im trying to setup samba so that i can copy some files from my windows 7 machine over to the drive on the opensuse machine running 11.2. i believe i set everything how it should be set up but no matter what i do i cant write filesfrom the windows machine. Here is my smb.conf
# smb.conf is the main Samba configuration file. You find a full commented # version at /usr/share/doc/packages/samba/examples/smb.conf.SUSE if the # samba-doc package is installed. # Date: 2009-10-27 [global]

We are experiencing problems copying files from a server to server where the machine issuing the copy is a 32-bit lucid and the mount drive is a 64-bit server. I have no other information but the md5's are consistently different after doing a copy. The files are > 8mb.
I recently replaced my windows fileserver with one running Ubuntu. One thing I've noticed (which is a annoying) is that when I copy files between two samba shares from my windows machine, it copies the file through my PC to the new destination. On windows shares it just did some sort of local copy (ie it took about 2 seconds) rather than 3-4 minutes. Is this the normal behaviour, is there any way around it on Linux
I inherited a machine that's set up with 3 disks, managed by LVM (v 2.02.46-RHEL5). I just got a new box with the same hardware configuration, and would like to clone the disk setup by copying an LVM config file from the first box to the second, and have LVM on the new box set up the disks according to that same configuration. Is there a way to do this?
I successfully installed the virtual box on my fedora 8 system, and also created a virtual machine with windows xp OS, it works nicely, I try to configure the serial port of my virtual machine and try to configure the path for the port "screen shot are attached" it gives me the error message also the "screen shot are attached" for your review.Is kind of mistake is going on during the path setting, and how to set the path for configuring the serial port of my virtual machine so that I can use the hyper terminal tool of windows.
I have some file tools on a mint machine that I would rather not install on my mac laptop. Mainly because of the vastness of apt-get and the low risk of installation failure. Anyway, every so often I have a file that I want to process in place using some remote tool. Both machines can ssh right in to each other so I was figuring there must be some script or tool out there that would allow me to type out something like remote [file] [tool & args] to send my file to the other machine, get it processed, then get it back.
I'm know very little about Linux but decided to set up a machine running Drupal CMS on a Debian machine and it won't go. The folks at Drupal have tried to help but it seems the Debian OS won't do it's PHP thing for Drupal.
That means i'll have to start at the START I guess.

My hostmachine is Windows, and install Ubuntu on a virtual machine. I developed some program on Ubuntu. Suppose I want to transfer these files to a folder in Windows. How to find and get these files, which logically are stored in the virtual machine.
I am running Ubuntu 10.4 I am coming from a windows background and I want to know what is the proper way to share files among multiple users on the same Linux box. In this particular case, I will be sharing jpg images.
I do not have any shares defined and I am not (to my knowledge) running Samba.
I have a linux box that I plan to use primarily as a server. I also have another machine that dual boots Windows/Linux.I would like to have a way to backup my filehe Windows/Linux box onto the Linux server. In other words, I am assuming the hardrive on the Windows/Linux box could fail at any time and I want to have a backup of important files.Should I set up an ftp server to do this? Are there any security issues that I need to be concerned about if the files contain sensitive information etc?
I added another disk to an old Dell Dim2400 that had one HD. It was a blank disk, and instead fo re-loading and re-configuring SuSE, F10, and PCLOS, I did a cp command from another multi-boot computer, like so:
Code: cp /dev/sda dev/sdd sda is an 80G Seagate, with SuSE, F10, and PCLOS. sdd is an 80G Western Digital.
The copy went perfect. It begins to load SuSE in the old Dell, showing new peripheral hardware, but it stops when it realizes it's on a WD and not on a Seagate. The line is something like, 'Looking for dev/by-uid=xxx-123-Seagate-yyy'. It asks if I want to go to the next device to boot up. I enter 'NO', because it will go to Windows.
It then exits to 'bin/sh' prompt (or something close (shell?)).
Can I boot LiveCD and modify this so it completes the load?
I have a Ubuntu server hosted on Amazon EC2. I need to create an automated backup scheme so I created another Ubuntu instance on my local network which is hosted in a virtual environment. I managed to transfer the necessary files between 2 machines on the same network using the rsync command:
How can I do the same thing but transferring files from my Amazon server to my local server? Is there a way I can achieve this with port forwarding, or by VPN, or anything else? It doesn't have to be rsync. If you know about a better method, kindly let me know.
I am looking for a way to see if it is possible to copy the system state of a system to another system.Is it possible to simply move the folder structure over to another machine, and have it work? Do I need any special partitions for /var, /home, etc?My machine is dying slowly, and I really want the quickest way to migrate the system over to the new system.
Iphone 4.2.6 and ubuntu. I have upgraded to natty and have Banshee running and am able to mount my iphone and see my files etc in a file browser. I can even see my music on the iphone inside Banshee. It lets me copy music from my machine to the iphone but never shows up on the ipod on the iphone. I can browse the folders and find the music but its saved as libgpodxxxxx.mp3. The xs are numbers. They are all in folders on the iphone called itunes_controlmusicfxx where x again are numbers. They play fine from the iphone if you highlight them in the file manager or in banshee.
I have a Win7 deskptop (host) and want to run a linux virtual machine; but I want that linux virtual machine to be able to access a directory on the host machine (in this case, to serve a web directory).
What virtual machine software would you recommend for this?
I did a wget on the source and built the apache binaries correctly. Now what do I need to do to get some documents accessible using HTTP (start some services?)? Also, do I need to group all the files I want to make accessible in some directory and make the directory and its contents accessible or can I just make the individual documents available? I will be providing these links to my colleagues and do not want them to be down, so need to make sure that the apache services are up automatically after a reboot. Does apache have some inbuilt support for this?
