i have client and server PCs, both with openSuse 11.2.
on the server side, i have mounted HD partition to /vmshare dir. relevant line in /etc/fstab reads:
Code: /dev/disk/by-id/ata-WDC_WD3200AAJS-07B4A0_WD-WCAT16493946-part2 /vmshare reiserfs user,acl 1 2 i want to export /vmshare dir via nfs. i have configured it through yast and resulting line in /etc/exports reads: Code: /vmshare *(rw,root_squash,sync,no_subtree_check,crossmnt) the permissions for this directory is drwxrwxr-x root vmshare.
i can successfully mount the exported dir on client side, i can move between directories and list contents, but i can't write into it (not even as a root). on the server side, i can write to the directory only as root. the vmshare group is created on both machines with same gid as well as all users have same uids. firewalls are down.y.
As root I get the following result: ngssuse:~ # traceroute -nI 10.200.123.45
Note: the -i and -I options were exchangedfor compability with LBL traceroute Use -I for ICMP, and -i <ifname> to specify the interface name unable to create ICMP send socket: Permission denied. Is this a bug?
I've done a fresh install of Ubuntu 9.04 and tried to create a folder using the File Brower went to my user account and proceeded to create a directory. Then when trying to cp a file to this new directory I get permission denied. I checked the directory permissions and discovered that its owner was root not the user that I was signed in as.
So I had no choice but to enable the root account so I could copy the file I wanted. Why could I not have copied the file using the user that I was signed/logged int as without resorting to changing users to root. I hope that its not a bug of some kind or maybe I did something weird during the install. I would like to disable the root account again.
nfs mounted directory which is mounted rw. I and everyone else are members of a common group. We all have write permissions in the tree: All files and directories in the tree are in the common group. All directories are set to 775 and all files are set to 664 or 775, as appropriate.If a file is owned by someone else, even though the file and the directory are group writable, I get permission denied when I try to chmod the file.
Here's the command synopsis: 997 > ls -l portparms.txt -rwxrw-r--. 1 bdaugher fc 4091 Sep 5 2003 portparms.txt
I am using Ubuntu server edition 10.04.1 running in Vmware server 2.02.I am connect via Putty so I can use copy and paste.My first goal is configuring a ftp server using PureFtpd using this guide.In section 10 I need to write this command
If I try the sudo mv command on the file listed below I get the error listed. I am confused. It is my file & I have permissions. Somehow a slew of files on my system are now showing this way. This seems to correspond when I ran rsync from my netbook to sync it up with my desktop where I am having a problem.
i hope i'm posting in the right forum "Networking" subject related to remote onnection.. all the suggestions and solutions i found on the net did not do it for me..i have redhat(EL v4) and hp-ux(11i B v23) servers
i'm able to use remsh from hp-ux to hp-ux with the command hpux1_srv> remsh hpux2_srv -l hpux2_user uname -n with remsh from hp-ux to redhat it gives permission denied.
I noticed when running "ps -ef" that there are a bunch of processes listed with brackets. ie "[process]". Some of them appear to be daemons and others look more like kernel modules? I haven't found a program directly associated with them and was hoping somebody could clarify this for me?
Also, if I run a search of the file system with sudo or as root, there is a directory in my home that returns a permission denied. I understand permissions but shouldn't operations as root be able to do/access anything on the system?
After an upgrade to opensuse 11.3 from 11.2 it turns out that cron uses pam for authentication. Now I have one user 'mythtv' which does not have a login and is not part of the 'users' group. This user is being denied access (permission denied messages in /var/log/messages from crond).
Now, I have been experimenting with the /etc/pam.d/crond config file. I wanted to use the pam_listfile module to grant access to this specific user without authentication. That however didn't work and I have now narrowed down the problem even more.
I am trying to connect to my web host via ssh. I can do this on Windows using Putty without issue. However, if I run this on Linux, I receive a "permission denied" when I am prompted for my login and password. It's obviously making some type of connection, otherwise it wouldn't be prompting me for authentication.I initially thought this was a firewall issue.I opened up port 22 and I even tried disabling the firewall altogether.However, I still received this error.
I am trying to use VirtualBox which worked just a week ago (I haven't changed anything with it) but now it fails. When I try to start it (from the command line) with /usr/bin/VirtualBox, as a regular user, it fails.
I have a usb serial adapter and was happily using minicom with it under openSUSE 11.2. I've upgraded to openSUSE 11.3 and I can only use minicom with this serial adapter as root. I had previously had problems writing to /var/lock under openSUSE 11.2 which I worked around by changing the minicom config to use /tmp as its lock file location.
Unfortunately my laptop doesn't have a built in serial port so I can't tell if its a general problem or something specific to the /dev/ttyUSB0 device. This is the output I get when I run minicom with my regular user account. I get the same output whether the lock file location is set to /tmp or /var/lock
Code:minicom usb0 Device /dev/ttyUSB0 lock failed: Permission denied. Before I started tinkering my user belonged to the following groups groups=16(dialout),33(video),100(users) I've since added 5(tty),14(uucp),21(console) but still no joy.
I'm configuring Amanda Enterprise on an OpenSuSE 11.3 system, and everything but the scheduled backups are running. I decided to try and fix it tonight, but I'm pretty fed up by now.
So here's the background:
The application creates an account on the box named "amandabackup" and adds it to the 'video' and 'disk' groups.
It generates cron jobs in /etc/zmanda/zmc_aee/crontab, which is configured as the location of the crontab file for the amandabackup user.
The crontab is owned by amandabackup:disk with a mask of 644.
So I played around with it a little bit; I ran the backup task manually as amandabackup, which worked fine.
I then tried adding the following to the crontab:
And touched amandacron.log, then made sure it was owned by amandabackup with a mask of 644 (i also tried /etc/amanda/amandacron.log, which is a directory the account stores backup session configs in, so I know it can write to it properly). The file is never updated. I tried adding amandabackup to different groups (it's currently been added to the "Users" group), with no success. I tried a symlink to the crontab file in /etc/cron.d to see if that would make a difference, but it didn't.
At this point, I went online and tried some more stuff I found:
I checked /var/log/mail/amandabackup - everything *but* cron jobs were reporting to it.
I verified cron was running with both "ps -ef | grep cron" and "rccron status"
I ensured /var/spool/cron/tabs/amandabackup existed, showed the proper entries, and was set to 644. (this one's the important bit)I checked /var/log/messages, and every minute on the dot I see: <timestamp> /usr/sbin/cron[PID]: Permission Denied
I ensured there was no /etc/cron.allow, and that /etc/cron.deny did not contain amandabackup.
I tried making an /etc/cron.allow, adding amandabackup, and restarting the cron daemon, but this did nothing.
I don't think I've forgotten anything, but my attempts have been getting progressively more feverish, so I'm not positive. Is there some annoying YAST cron panel I'm not seeing? Is there some way of getting more verbose logging out of the cron daemon than just "permission denied"? Is there some draconian rule about crontabs only working based on some otherwise-arbitrary account setting?
11.3 in use with KDE. When I plug in an USB stick or my HTC phone into the USB connector the device is recognised but can't be opened in dolphin. This is the error message:
Code: org.freedesktop.Hal.Device.PermissionDeniedByPolicy: org.freedesktop.hal.storage.mount-removable auth_admin_keep_always <-- (action, result) but the device is shown in dolphin as a removable device and
Code: # lsusb Bus 001 Device 005: ID 0bb4:0ff9 High Tech Computer Corp.
And I added umask 022 to the user login script problem I have: I login with user and password that exists as a local user on my suse machine. I can read and download from my homedirectory, but I cannot upload with filezilla. Then I get the error: 550 permission denied critical file transfer error
Code: # traceroute -I 126.96.36.199 Note: the -i and -I options were exchangedfor compability with LBL traceroute Use -I for ICMP, and -i <ifname> to specify the interface name unable to create ICMP send socket: Permission denied Note that the command was done as root. This worked in 11.3.
And yes, it works without the "-I". But it should work with the "-I". One shouldn't have to boot into Windows, just to run "tracert" there.
i have some problems with configuring openvpn tunnel connection to my openvpn server. I'm using static-key tcp connection. Network manager always said to me that connection could not be established. Also, when i try to run openvpn from terminal, i got some strange permissions problem:

We have installed "openVPN" from openSUSE 11.2 repo and "openVPN - webmin module" (GUI).What it needs to be done .. "Road Warriors" need to be able to access websites through openSUSE box sitting in the data center, from remote locations (hotel, coffe shops, wi-fi hot spots,..)We're half way there but it gets stucked somewhere with the IP's
