General :: Samba PDC + New Windows 7 Machines Admin Privileges Not Working?
Dec 17, 2010
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 a program from windows that requires a .bat file for installation, i open it with Wine Windows Program Opener and opens the CMD, if i opened this in windows it would install because i am on the admin account but will not if i am not admin, opening it on here it thinks i am not admin, how can i make it think i am? here are screen grabs,
it shows this for a few seconds....
then shows this, pressing return closes the window
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
receive bash notice: "jim is not in the sudoers file."Just finished my first Debian install several hours ago, my first go around w/Debian. Installed 8.2 DVD ISO on USB. Had this issue from my first use in BASH, not a forgotten password problem. So 2 questions:
1) I'll be installing Debian again, and want to avoid this in future. There were 2 inputs on setup for name (my full name) and user (installer offered my first name which I accepted). 2 inputs for Password as well: I used the same password both times (have done this w/Mint & Ubuntu w/out issue).
2) How to fix this? Tried this: URL...however, neither keystroke got me to "rescue" prompt as article suggests. Several other articles presume an admin with privileges has sudo access to modify sudoers file.
I have multi-boot setup in BING environment (MBR, not EFI). I am booting from a GRUB2 ISO using grub commands as I still need GRUB installed in my boot partition until I can get cmd line access. I'm able to get a session on boot with the same password I used in setup.
i manged to get a samba server up and running to share with my windows machines. But i still want more. My main goal is to be able to share my movies. I have a laptop hooked to my flat screen with 3TB's of external drives, thats whats acting as my server. I have ubuntu desktop installed because i use it to play movies also.
I'm looking to set up something that is a little faster than samba (yes i no trying to share through USB 2.0 external drives and a wifi connection isn't going to be real fast no matter what) but i want to be able to access my server remotely. like maybe FTP? but what i'm asking here is what protocol should i use and what programs? i was thinking gadmin-proftpd and then filezilla to access?
I recently installed Maverick Meerkat on a hand me down laptop. And noticed that when I entered the password for admin privileges to install from the update manager, a key icon appeared on the top bar. I moused over it and saw I could use THAT to end privileges before the 10 minute grace was up. I should have thought of it before, and, small as it is, I thought this was a great feature.So, when I upgraded from Karmic Koala to Lucid Lynx on my desktop, I thought that feature would be there, but it's not.So first I'm wondering if it's there, but just not default. If so, how do I get that icon to appear? If not, how do I otherwise end admin privileges early?
I'm having a permissions problem with Ubuntu and apache. There are two users, I'll just call them A and B. All of the files belong to A and group root. I'm logged in as B and I have admin privileges. My website is working just fine but when I create a directory in the web root, change the owner to A on the directory and all files I still get a Permission Denied error when I try to access it from the web. I've also set permissions to rxwr-xr-x on the directory and all the files. So I don't understand what's going on. Why am I still getting a permission denied error?
I have installed Canon ImageRunner 2018i on my linux box using CUPS web interface. When I try to install this as a network printer from a Windows XP machine, the windows XP machine keeps asking me for a device driver. Is there a way to configure the printer on CUPS/Samba so that when I try to install it on Windows XP machine as a network printer, it does not ask me for a device driver?
After freshly installing Lucid Lynx and tinkering for some time to get everything just how I like it, I managed to somehow remove myself and all other users from all groups. Now, obviously, I've restarted and I don't have root privileges as I am no longer a member of admin group. So I am somewhat stuck. I've looked at this page: [URL]. But annoyingly, there is no grub menu appearing on boot up (unlike previous Ubuntu versions). So I'm appealing for your help to either:
a) Show me how I can bring up the grub menu so I can access ubuntu in safe mode
b) Show me another way of accessing the system with root privileges. (Would using chroot from the Live CD work? I just thought of that now so I'll try it).
i am relatively new to ubuntu. Just recenty i have not been able to access certain files(for example the history and bookmarks in the firefox folder), download files individually from the internet(music,fonts,etc), recieving an error message
I downloaded a driver for my printer today and I opened it in the terminal. Then a window popped up saying "This opporation requires root (administrative) privileges. Please enter the administrative password below:" I typed in the same password that I use when authorizing the installation of programs from the Ubuntu Software Center and I tried it multiple times. Each time, it rejects the password. I even tried downloading something else from the software center, just to make sure the password was correct, but the system had no problem with the password when downloading from the software center. So, is my software center password different from my administrator password?
I used to have my print server with cups in openSUSE 11.1 and it used to work perfect. I was able to print from both linux machines and windows. But since I Installed openSUSE 11.2, I'm only able to print from linux machines. In windows XP I'am able to find the printer and install the drivers, and everything seems to work, but when I send the print command, it creates an error. I have three XP pcs that were running perfectly, and now neither one of them print, so I know is a problem with the server itself. I have all the samba and cups services activated, and the firewall is set correctly, but can't figure out why it is working with linux machines and not with windows.
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?
I have 3 computers. One running openSuse 11.3 with SAMBA and the other 2 are Windows 7 Professional boxes. I have the same user name and passwords for all three boxes.
From the Linux box I can access one of the Windows 7 boxes but the other won't accept my user name and password. The one that won't accept has Windows LiveID Sign-In Assistant installed. Apparantly that's an automatic install now.
I've read that there is a bug with the SAMBA libsmbclient [URL].
I tried updating via YAST but still end up with version 3.5.4-5.1.2 and this doesn't work.
I have installed a Samba Server (Ubuntu 10.10 Server) detailed config below. The server is up and running but clients running windows 7 cannot connect as their credentials are not accepted. The pop window for credentials keep coming back up on the clients and no connection is issued. I have tried to change the policies on windows 7 as such:
I've recently been experiencing an issue connecting to my Samba shares on a Ubuntu 10.4 server box on my network from a Windows 7 client. If I use Ubuntu 10.10 on the same machine, or a Windows XP Virtual Machine running under both Windows and Linux host the share works absolutely fine.
What happens is if I browse to the hostname or the IP address I see a login prompt (there is access control) but my username and password no longer work. Before I didn't need to login as they are the same as my windows credentials.
I'm not sure what information/logs etc would be most relevant so I've posted some information, if any more is required then let me know where to find it and I'm sure I'll be able to get it.
Here is the last few days of the log when I believe it was working, there are no entries since.
I have a rather large USB drive that I'd like to be able to use across the different machines I own. I'm having a hard time figuring out what would be the best file system to use on it to be able to read/write things from the 3 OSs I'm in contact with: Windows, Linux and Mac.
I configured my dns server running on redhat5(test.com, ip-192.168.10.1), all is working perfect on the server its-self and on the client machine(xp), it cant resolve the name [url] but can resolve when i use [url]are ok, nslookup displays the following error:
The reverse is working fine from the redhat machine, NO firewall on the client xp machine xp as host name is added in /etc/hosts
I'm trying to replace a 2k3 server with openSUSE. So far I was able to get working DHCP, DNS, SQUID and SAMBA with LDAP backend.Samba works ok login users and creating home and profile folders but somehow only the Domain Admin (administrator) account will automatically save the profile. The administrator account belongs to the ntadmins group while the rest of the users belong to ntusers group.
When I change a common user from ntusers group to ntadmins the profile will save without problem. If I change it back to it's original group the profile will be read but not updated on log off.Folder permissions seems to be ok. The network share (\pdcprofiles.msprofile aka Z is being connected with no problem and all users can read and write from and to it.
Samba and access to/from my Fedora 11 system and my Win-XP or 7 boxes worked great. Then, I upgraded to F13 and although I can export with Samba, none of my F13 systems can see any Windows boxes.
I checked the services. SMBD and NMBD are running fine.
I checked the firewall and eventually disabled it totally. No effect.
I checked this forum for Samba configuration issues. All seem OK and consistent with other fixes seen here and elsewhere.
I loaded smb4k and it has the same problems - can't see windows machines whatsoever.
But here is what's curious. I also run VirtualBox-OSE and the Windows running in there CAN see my other windows boxes just fine (after I load the Guest Additions anyway). Therefore, there is nothing on my system that is firewalling the ports. The problem must be with Samba/F13 as installed or as updated.
I can't imagine anything about my network that is odd or cumbersome. I use no passwords on the private network anywhere as security is not an issue. I've been around Windows since 3.0 and Unix/Linux since 1994, so I'm no noob. But I clearly have some problem I'm not seeing or there is a serious bug in the Samba libraries somewhere. Or is my expectation of seamless operation like in the earlier days now just a dream?
i've been trying to network my machines together, 3 to be exact, without using SAMBA, as there is no point using SAMBA as there are no windows machines on the network at all, have tried using the standard network admin GUI's and following some guides, without success, what is the step by step procedure for creating network shares linux-linux only networking, regards
I'm looking for virtual machine software that supports dual monitors on a Linux guest with a Windows 7 host.VirtualBox supports dual monitors only for Windows guests. VMware Player was extremely slow, so I gave up. I'm not sure it supports dual monitors, anyway. Can anyone recommend a product for what I want to do?
