General :: /bin/mount Mounts Point As A Different User ?

Dec 11, 2010

I have a directory, /root/backup, that I mount and run a bunch of rysnc scripts against to backup my box. I'm running into a very recent problem where when I run this command:

A directory that once looked like this:

Goes to this:

It changes from root to www (another user on my system) and I have no idea why.

When I look at the /mount/procs file, I see this:

So it looks like the uid is correct...

I believe this is what is causing my rsync scripts to fail (they only copy over directories and not the files in those directorys and I get a lot of permissions failed errors)

All of this is run as root in cron jobs

As a note, here is a sample rsync command:

Ubuntu Security :: Adding User With Access To Mount Point Over SSHFS Only

Sep 2, 2010

I'd like to add a user to my server that will only have access to a mount point over sshfs. Is there any way I can provide them this access without actually giving them permission to open a terminal on my server? I tried /bin/false and /sbin/nologin already, but /bin/false didn't allow the mount point to be made and /sbin/nologin prevented a login completely (also stopped the mount point from working).

General :: Mount External USB Drive In Debian To A Mount Point Based On The Volume Name

May 5, 2011

How do I configure my Debian installation to mount external USB drives to mount points based on the volume names of the drives? For instance, if I have a thumb drive with the volume name of "SWORDFISH," how do I have Linux mount it at /media/SWORDFISH? I'm aware that this can be setup in FSTAB, but that requires that I know the UUID of the device beforehand and that I take the time to set each external device up in FSTAB first. That does nothing for me when I have a thumb drive that has never been plugged into my computer before.

This seems to be setup by default in Ubuntu/Kubuntu, but is not working for me with a fresh installation of Debian Squeeze and KDE4. I've spent the past 2 hours Googling for a solution and have turned up nothing. UPDATE: My results are inconsistent. Sometimes Debian mounts devices to mount points based on the volume names, and other times it gives them generic mount points (e.g. /media/usb1).

General :: What Is The Default Mount Point On Systems

Feb 23, 2010

Is the mount point for external media (like USB) always /media?

Because in a Debian system, if I plug in any USB device that goes to the /media folder. So is it the case with all the other Linux flavors like Fedora, Ubuntu, etc. If a USB device is automatically mounted will it always go to the /media directory?

I am not concerned about the name of the devices. I am looking for every external media (like USB) to be listed under /media directory so that my code can run on any flavor of Linux.

General :: Move Mount Point To New RAID Set

Dec 3, 2010

I have a CentOS 5 production server with multiple OS-managed RAID-1 sets. I'd like to add a new mirrored set and move the /var partition to the new drives. On a non-RAID system I would boot from the install CD to edit fstab and copy the existing files to the new drive, but I'm pretty sure booting off the install CD does not recognize my RAID setup.

General :: Accessing Data Under A Mount Point?

Apr 10, 2010

I'm using ext3 and I have my / partition on sda3. This is a full install, it has /bin /home etc etc on it, the only thing I have is sda1 is /boot and sda2 is swap.

I've configured my system to mount sda4 as /home/user as the system boots up, which puts all of my data on sda4.

My question is this. How do I access any data left in (sda3) /home/user? (Because trying that won't work). Is there some way to use a direct path? Like /device/sda3/home/user?

General :: Check That Mount Point Is An NFS Export Before Copying To It

May 10, 2011

I am copying some backup files to a NAS by connecting an NFS export on the NAS to a mount point on my linus box. I then copy the files to it with a cron job that runs nightly. I have mounted the NAS to /mnt/nas. How can I test that the mount point is active before I copy to it? I wouldn't want to copy to /mnt/nas unless it was actually connected to the NAS.

General :: How To Prevent Access To Unmounted Mount Point?

Jan 10, 2010

I'm using some software that using mount point such as truecrypt. I also mount shared folder on other machine (fileserver) and publish it using ftp. The problem is when the truecrypt volume dismounted or the shared folder mount point loosing connection to the fileserver, user can write to the mount point without knowing that they actually not writing to the truecrypt volume or to the shared folder.

My question is, when sometime the server reboot and truecrypt volume is not mounted yet, how to prevent write to the mount point? I dont run truecrypt mount automatically for security reason.Some question for shared folder, if fileserver restart and the shared folder mount point got disconnected, how to prevent write to the mount point?

General :: Root Can't Chown Mount Point For Samba Share?

May 30, 2010

I have a samba share that I mount locally at boot through fstab. The share is writable and if I access the share directly, say with konqueror and smb (smb://hostname/sharename) then I can do anything I want (create, write, delete, edit, files/directories). I have a mount point on my local machine

Code:

/shares/mp3

and I (username dtest) was unable to do anything except read files and create directories trying to do them to the local mountpoint except as root. I figured it would be a matter of

Code:

chown -R dtest /shares/mp3

but I was unable to do that even as root, I kept getting permission denied. When I did

Code:

ls -alt /shares/ it told me the owner was 1000 and the group was root. Dtest was already a member of the root group and I was able to

Code:

chmod -R 774

as root but I still couldn't do anything except read and create directories directly via the mountpoint. Ultimately I solved this by changing the uid of user dtest via kuser and then just chowning my home directory back to dtest. It seems like as root I should be able to change the owner of the directory. I know it's because this is a samba share, but it doesn't make any sense why root couldn't just chown it. Is there another way to change the owner of a directory, or is this set by the machine hosting the samba share?

General :: Can Browse Files Via Windows Mount Point But Not Through The Server/share

Aug 20, 2009

Using SUSE 11 with Gnome. I mounted a CIFS share from a Windows server as /mnt/win. With the file browser, I can browse to file system/mnt/win and then the files and folders of the Windows share come up fine and I can open them. When I use the file browser to browse to network, the server hosting this share is listed. Then I browse to that server and it lists no shares (nothing at all). I can't go any further than the server. Is there a separate authentication necessary for the file browser to see this share from the network place?

OpenSUSE :: CD / DVD Mount Adds Trailing Blanks To Mount Point?

Feb 16, 2010

On SUSE 11.2 when a CD or DVD is automounted (in the /media directory) it appears that the mount point chosen for the disk always has extra blanks at the end of the mount.

For example, if the label on the CD was DISK-001, the mount point chosen by SUSE is

/media/DISK-001 /

In 11.1 (and earlier) the mount point would have been

/media/DISK-001/

I'm assuming that the trailing blanks are filling in unused or blank chars at the end of the CD label.

Is there any way to change this annoying behavior? I much prefer NOT to have trailing blanks in the mount point.

Server :: Auto Mount USB Drive To Specified Mount Point After Reboot

Jul 19, 2010

I have servers installed with RHEL 4 2.6.9-89.0.9 ELsmp. I tried using uuid and label in /etc/fstab to automount usb drives to mountpoints that I specify after reboot. Unfortunately, it just does not work in all my RHEL4 servers. After every reboot, /etc/fstab will be automatically modified and all configurations related to my USB drives will be changed. Irregardless of whether i use UUID or LABEL in my /etc/fstab.However, it works on RHEL5. But, upgrading is not an option in my environment. I have been googling around looking for alternatives but everything seems to point back to using UUID or LABEL in /etc/fstab. Anyone has tried something that works? Please help me, thank you.

General :: Finding Mount Point Path For Windows CIFS Volume Visible In Ubuntu File Browser

Ubuntu Servers :: Creating A Static Cdrom Automount Point?

Mar 14, 2011

I have an Ubuntu server running Samba and I would like to share out the cdrom drive to the network. I made a share of the /media directory and it seems to work fine when I insert USB drives and I am able to browse and work with files. However, when I insert a cdrom it automatically mounts to /media/<volume name> and I get a permission denied error when I attempt to access it over the network. I am assuming this is happening because the permissions do not include the execute bit and being a read only file system I can not change this. I made the directory /media/cdrom and manually mounted the cdrom to it and I can successfully access it over the network just like the USB drives. So my question is: Is there a way to make the cdrom automatically mount and unmount to /media/cdrom when I insert and eject disks instead of to /media/<volume name>? Or maybe just have the permissions automatically set so Samba users can open it instead of just see it.
