General :: Group Permissions On File Or Share

Oct 17, 2009

I'm studying Linux and just started reading about permissions and ownership. My question is how would you have multiple users or groups given access to a certain directory? When doing an ls -l I see the owner, group and others that have permissions that have access to the file or directory. But what if I need multiple different groups access to a particular file or directory all with different permissions?

General :: Setting Up Group Permissions For A Mounted Share?

Jul 6, 2010

Sorry if this is the wrong section for this type of question. Anyway, I have two servers running Ubuntu 10.04. Server A has an NFS share that is mounted on server B, and the former has this share set up with specific permissions for a group called netusers. This group basically grants its users read/write permissions, and blocking all of files from anyone who's not part of the group.My question is this: how can I set up the permissions on server B, such that if I was to add a new user on server B, he would have read/write access to the share? I tried adding a counterpart group called netusers with the same permissions on B, but that didn't work.

Ubuntu :: Samba Share With Group Permissions?

Nov 18, 2010

I am trying to set up a Samba share on one of my machines where I am the owner and a special group manages permissions for read-only access ( me:specialgroup ). If I log into the share as me, there is no problem (I have read/write privs as per usual). However, I am not able to log into the share using any of the group members (there is only one currently). That user is not able to access the share (failed to mount).

The folder (which is the share) is owned by me:specialgroup and the permissions have been forced down the folder. Samba is set to Share this folder with no guest or others write access.

Server :: Group Share Directory Permissions

Jul 8, 2010

On our fileserver, we primary use samba to share files to our users, but a few users have to use ssh/sftp to access the file server. In samba we have the shares setup so that permissions are forced to be the correct group owner and group read/write. The problem is those few who access via ssh/sftp. There files do not have the correct permissions. These people are not the most computer savvy, I'm dealing with biologist here. Is there some way to fix this or will I just have to setup a cron job to go through and set permissions periodically?

Ubuntu Servers :: Setup Samba Share And Group Permissions?

Feb 15, 2011

I have a couple of user accounts where each member belongs to a group i have created: Each user access the share using their own user account credentials.
How can I configure Samba in a way so that each modification done on the share gets the owner of the user and my group instead of the user and the users own group? I would also like the access rights to be 770 to each modification.

In other words, today each modification by "userA" get the owner "userA.userA" and I would like it to be "userA.MyGroup" with "rwxrwx---" permissions.

General :: Group Member Not Able To Write To Group's File?

Feb 8, 2011

I have a group (GROUP) with a number of users. I recently added a new user (NEW). NEW is able to read but not write group files, whereas all the other users in the group can read and write to the group files. The permissions for the group files indicate that all members of group should have write permission -rwxrwxr-x

/etc/group indicates that NEW is a member of GROUP
...
GROUP:x:501:GROUP,OLD,OLD2,OLD3,OLD4,....,NEW

[code]....

Don't know if it matters, but both OLD and NEW write to the GROUP files over an internet connection. why NEW can't write to GROUP files? Is there a maximum number of members in a group that I might have exceeded?

Server :: Samba Share File Permissions?

Mar 19, 2011

I have set up a computer to use as a file server using Samba. I attached a 1TB hard disk to it and had the system to mount it automatically. I have 4 user accounts which will be able to access this network share. An administrator account is called "server". I'll call them user1, user2 user4. This is the folder structure:

+-/mnt/FILES
+-BACKUP
backup files (accessible only to "server" user)
+-MUSIC
music1.mp3 (read only files for all users)
music2.mp3

[Code]...

I don't know which groups I should create. I'm having a hard time setting file/folder permissions. And I wanted to know how to set Samba so that it won't ask for a password when accessing public/group files, but asks for it when accessing private user files.

General :: Group Permissions Getting Overwritten By Owner?

Apr 9, 2010

A colleague of mine has a Linux box (running Debian I believe) with an SVN repository on it. The repository directory and files 'owner' is my colleauge. We are both members of a group called 'users'. He manages several projects both Linux and Windows apps, while I have one Windows app. For the Windows apps, we both use TortoiseSVN via an SSH link to commit/update. Performing the command 'ls -l' shows the repository files and folders on the Linux box to have the following permissions:

-rwxrwx--- john users

However, when my colleauge commits to the repository, the permissions change to:

-rwxrwx--- john john

This then means I get 'Permission denied' when trying to access the repository myself as it appears that the group permissions have been overwritten with only 'owner' permissions. To fix this, a 'chown -R' command is applied to the files/folders to set the permissions back to owner/group, but each time he writes to the repository, the issue repeats.

General :: Understanding Ubuntu User / Group Permissions

May 20, 2010

I'm beginning to deal with more than one user on my system (it's a VPS serving some sites) and I need to make sure I understand how group permissions work. I have an account named "admin" .. it's basically the primary account that is used for serving most of the sites that I control myself. Now, I added a second account named "Ville" as one of my users wants to be able to administer that site. So, I can do this the easy way and just chown their domains folder under the ville user, they have permission to do whatever they need be and so forth. However, let's say I want to also give the admin user access to the files (modifying and all) .. how can I put both users into the same group and give them both permission?

I've tried doing:
sudo usermod -a -G admin ville
To add the ville into the admin group, but ville still cannot edit files by admin. Permissions for the primary directory for the ville user are read/write for both owner and group, and the current group for the files is admin:admin ..
But ville still can't write into the directory. So, what should I be doing here to get this right and secure at the same time?

What I want to be able to do, is have create a group, for example called "group1" and set its default permissions to read & write, instead of the usual just read.

So when I add a user into "group1" they automatically have read & write access to all files & directories which is in "group1".

Oh & I use crunchbang 10 (statler) for my desktops & Ubuntu 11.04 for my NFS/print/SSH/etc/etc server

Software :: Member Of Group Root / But Root Group Permissions Don't Apply?

Apr 20, 2010

A bit of an oddity that I've recently run into with my storage folder in my system; it's a newly installed drive that I've set to mount at /storage. When I first tried to use it, programs that I used that attempted to write to it tossed Access Denied errors at me in their own way. Checking the permissions (at the Terminal, ls -l / | grep storage) showed that /storage was set to 'rwxrwxr--'--Owner and Group were given full read/write/execute, but Others could only read. However, my logon to my system is a member of group root. Why, then, with the above bits set, would I not be able to write to it? Changing Others permissions to rwx (and presumably rw would have worked out for me since I don't leave anything executable there) allowed me to write to it, but I don't understand why that would have been necessary. So far as I'm aware, the prior drive that was in my system--mounted at the same location--did not need this treatment.

General :: Permissions On A Windows Share

Mar 31, 2011

It seems that by default a Windows share mounted at /mnt/Windows/ will be owned by root and have 755 permissions set on all files. I usually do a chown or chmod to allow my user to have write access to these files. Does that affect the Windows files in any way? It takes quite some time to complete the chown/chmod when there's a lot of data. Where is the Linux permission data kept for the Windows share? On the Linux computer where I set the permissions? I just want to get a better understanding how this works.

I do the usual procedure (that worked so far), I right click my folder > sharing options and tick "share this folder" as well as "Allow others to create and delete files in this folder" but I dont get the usual messages asking to add permissions automatically.When I try to mount my folder in another pc with linux, I get permission denied and that the folder is only readable and in another, windows cannot find the network path to my folder.My folder has about 10.000 files. asking to add permissions automaticallyI created another folder on the same flash and when I create share I get the message asking to add permissions automatically but it is not visible either. I even cant see my folder in "my places" > network, so it is not a matter of the mounting command

Server :: Group Permissions With In Folder

May 30, 2010

I am running into a Brick wall with this. And thought that the knowledge and expertise here would be a good place to seek help.I have CentOS 5.4 server running Samba on a WinBloZ network. I have the groups all setup and that aspect works fine. But here lies the issues.In a shared directory with group permissions set if someone on the group with permission to this directory creates a file they are the only person that can edit / modify that file. That file need to be editable by the entire group. But the only way thus far I can achieve this is to manually chmod the files in the directory. I know there is a way to fix this, but I have not found it. Can someone please explain how to make this work for me.
