Server :: Creating Multiple Logical Groups Out Of Physical Volume?

Apr 26, 2010

How to create multiple Logical Groups out of a single Physical Volume? Here is the Physical Volume I have created:

Code:
# pvdisplay
--- Physical volume ---
PV Name /dev/sda9
VG Name myVG1
PV Size 54.88 MB / not usable 2.88 MB
Allocatable yes
PE Size (KByte) 4096
Total PE 13
Free PE 11
Allocated PE 2
PV UUID bon4Ao-vmgC-aP1h-EC9X-w3tN-YXNu-0N2dAw

This is how I am creating a Logical Group out of the above Physical Volume:

Code:
# vgcreate myVG1 -s 4m /dev/sda9
Display:

Code:
# vgdisplay
--- Volume group ---
VG Name myVG1
System ID
Format lvm2
Metadata Areas 1
Metadata Sequence No 5
VG Access read/write
VG Status resizable
MAX LV 0
Cur LV 2
Open LV 1
Max PV 0
Cur PV 1
Act PV 1
VG Size 52.00 MB
PE Size 4.00 MB
Total PE 13
Alloc PE / Size 2 / 8.00 MB
Free PE / Size 11 / 44.00 MB
VG UUID O6ljYC-bflz-EUTd-nf34-8gYe-Fh39-Bh3cOg

But I am unable to create one more Logical Group out of this Physical Volume. Can we accomplish it? Or do we always extend our current Logical Group to utilize the available space of a Physical Volume?

Red Hat / Fedora :: Users In Multiple Groups And File Permissions?

Feb 12, 2009

this directory has permissions 750 and is owned by user1 and group user1 I have an admin user that is primarily a part of group admin, but also a part of group user1 what would stop admin from having read and execute permissions on this directory? I'm running clamav and have a clamd daemon running as user admin (I could run it as any user, and I may make a special user later, but I don't want to run it as user1, user2, etc).

I have 2 (technically lots more, but let's just say 2 for now) users, user1 and user2 that have home directories /home/user1 and /home/user2. each is owned and group owned by user1:user1 and user2:user2 respectively with permissions of 750. my admin user is part of groups admin, user1, and user2 I need this to be able to scan my user's directories using the command (is this correct?):

clamdscan --move=/files/quarantine/ --config-file=/etc/clamd.d/adm.conf /home/user1/file

doing this gives the error:

/home/user1/file: lstat() failed. ERROR

If I change the directory permissions to 755, it works fine.Or if I leave the permissions 750 and change the directory group ownership to admin, it works fine. So, why would this be? Obviously it is a permissions issue, but why is it not reading admin as part of the user1 group and allowing the same permissions as it does when making the directory group-owned by admin?

Fedora :: Adding The User And Groups?

Jan 15, 2009

just getting startedin linux <fedora9> and haveseveral questions. first what bookwould be best to start the learning process? have looked at fedora 9 and enterprise and the newest fedora 10 with enterprise and these seem to be aimed at networking setups which I do not have.also in adding users and groups which I have done I think successfully however when I use the newgrp command and try to access a file I have saved under a group with two members the file does not show in the ls command.

users are jevans in group programmers cevans in group programmers in creating the file I didthe newgrp programmers command and created the filein the cevans spotand changed to jevans and negrp programmers and the filedoes not show.so what do I do here, or is my understaning of this incorrect?

Fedora X86/64bit :: Which Groups Should User Belong To

Dec 5, 2010

I've just installed Fedora 14 x64 and had a few problems. I have a GT9800 video card and after installation x wouldn't start untill I added xdriver-vesa nomodeset to the kernel line. Anyway I've just got it to the point where it will actually boot but wasn't asked to create a user - the live cd installation only asked for root user password. So I used useradd to create a user and I'm finally at the desktop. My question now before I go about installing the nvidia driver is can someone confirm which groups my user should belong to. I haven't used Fedora since FC3 so I can't remember.

Networking :: Creating Several IP Groups For Different Networks?

Jan 21, 2011

I want to create different IP based groups so that I may assign different settings according to that group. For example

Group1
172.16.1.x For Officers
In this group I want to limit and add some restrictions along with bandwidth limitations. So that other group may not be effected with these settings

Group2
172.16.5.x For officials

Group3
172.16.8.x For Hostels

and so on. So according to this group settings I will allow the bandwidth, accessing of audio/video site. How I may configure these groups. How to create or define these IP groups and how restrictions be added in each group.

General :: Difference Between Regular User And System User (and Groups)

Sep 28, 2010

What is the difference between creating a "regular" user and creating a "system" user on Linux?

For example:

Code:

adduser john

Code:

adduser --system john

Similarly it seems there are normal groups and system groups. Doing an internet search and reading man pages does not give much information on the whole concept of system and regular user/group.

General :: When To Use Multiple LVM Volume Groups

Jan 22, 2010

I'm new to LVM. I use Red Hat and CentOS 5. I'm setting up a database server and I want to setup the local drives for performance. My plan is to have three storage locations, 1st for Linux, 2nd for the application, and 3rd for the data files. Each location will be appropriately redundant. The OS and application drives will be local. Because my goal is to dedicate one spindle for the OS and another for the application, is there a best practice that would say I should create two LVM volume groups.

Each with one logical volume associated with one of the physical partitions or one LVM volume group with two logical volumes each associated with one of the physical partitions? I've read that a physical disk can only belong to one volume group. So if I want to add 70GB to both logical volumes, I could add a single 140GB drive to a single volume group and then add half to each logical volume. If I have two volume groups, I would need to add two additional disks. I may be missing an obvious consideration or be missing a basic concept of LVM.

Server :: Samba Force Multiple Groups

Jun 21, 2010

I am currently using the following code in order to set a user's primary group in samba.Code: force group = +group.This almost does what I need but I was wondering if it is possible to list multiple groups. Something like this would be exactly what I need.

Code:#If user is in group1 set it as primary group, if in group2 set it as primary.force group = +group1, +group2. Does anyone know if this is possible or if I could use a script to force the primary group?

Server :: Ownership For Multiple Groups To A Single Share?

Feb 4, 2010

I have configured a file server with samba and winbind in RHEL5.I am able to allot permission for the active directory groups to my Linux folder.No issues.But i want to set multiple groups of active directory to get ownership to a single directory. Say there are 3 groups a,b,c to have permissions to a folder of the Linux machine.

Code:

chown -R root:Active_directory_group_name path_to_linux directory

I have set

Code:

chmod 770 /myshare

meaning that user and group would have full rights to /myshare

Code:

chown root:a

works great I tried with the option of

Code:

chown -R --reference=/etc/shares_own.txt /myshare

In reference file(shares_own.txt) i gave the entry as

Code:

root:a,b,c

This is not working.

Debian Configuration :: Samba: Sharing A Folder With Multiple Groups?

Aug 30, 2010

I have a folder, called Vault, that we want to share only with certain people. Because it will contain confidential information.

I want the unix group trustees to have read-only access I want the unix group administrators (and root) to have read/write access

All other users should have no access.

the implementation I have so far is:
folder owner: root:administrators
folder permissions: 770
section from smb.conf

[Code]....

However, this is not working as expected. It currently works as follows:

Normal user: No access (expected) Trustees member: No access (fail. Trustees should be able to read) Administrators member: Read/write access (expected)

Software :: Webmin Dansguardian Setting Up Multiple Groups Gives Error

Mar 10, 2010

I am running Webmin Squid and Dansguardian. Works great. Trying to set up multiple groups now. In the Dansguardian module it has an icon to set up lists and configs for multiple groups. I click it and I get the following:
Global symbol "$debug" requires explicit package name at /usr/share/webmin/dansguardian/setupfiltergroups.cgi line 114.

It repeats this same error message for line 123 138 139 141 302 and 315. I am running Ubuntu 9.10 desktop. Ubuntu is up to date. Not sure if I need another package or not? When I installed Webmin, I installed apt-get install perl libnet-ssleay-perl openssl libauthen-pam-perl libpam-runtime libio-pty-perl libmd5-perl when I set it up, so I am not sure if I need another module or anything to help with the error?

If user1 creates a file inside tech, user2 cant read or modify it because user1 owns it. Here's a few sites that reference this problem:

Security :: Set Permissions For Multiple Groups To Have Different Levels Of Access To One Group Of Files?

Feb 5, 2010

I am setting up a samba server to operate in a windows AD domain. I want to set permissions for multiple groups to have different levels of access to one group of files, and it looks to me like unix permissions will not do that? I always hear about how robust linux is, and it seems to me that their file permissions model is WEAK compared to microsoft's?

Fedora Networking :: Creating Network User Accounts And Enforcing Their Use?

Nov 8, 2009

I have a small office network here which consists of three machines running Fedora 10 and a dev server running CentOS 5.2. I have no Windows machines, and have no intention of having any. I would like to use the CentOS server as the Linux equivalent to a domain controller in Windows. Use case is simple - I will still have a local root account on each machine, obviously, but I want the three staff users to be network accounts. I want them (like a Windows domain) to be able to login on any computer using their network user credentials and *not* have local credentials on any computer.

I've been Googling like mad on this, but I can't find a definitive answer or a sensible HOWTO for this use case in Linux. Others have suggested I do it all in Samba, but I cannot find an example Samba configuration that behaves as I describe above. Another article I found suggested OpenLDAP.I'm lost. What's the best way to do this with a CentOS controller machine and Fedora 10 workstations? Can anyone point me to some good resources on the matter?

General :: How To Mount Remote Samba Share From Local Host With Multiple Groups

May 6, 2010

I am using mount.cifs to mount a remote samba share (both client and server are Ubuntu server 8.04) like this:mount.cifs //sambaserver/samba /mountpath -o credentials=/path/.credentials,uid=someuser,gid=1000.I mounted a user from local system with username and password with mount.cifs but the problem is that the user is part of multiple groups on the remote system and with mount.cifs I can only specify one gid. Is there a way to specify all the gids that the remote user has?

Mount the remote samba with multiple groups on the local system?Browse the mount from 1) with the terminal since I want to pass some files from samba as arguments to local programs.which runs through gvfs; but the newer gnome does not write to disk the ~/.gvfs anymore so I can't browse it in terminal. And the last solution would be NFS but that means that I have to synchronize the uids and gids on the local system with the ones from the server.

Slackware :: What Groups Should User Be Added To

Jun 12, 2011

So I just recently installed fresh 13.37 over my 13.1 install. Went multilib, and added myself to the usergroups I thought I might need. But truth is, I don't know what half of these are and I just picked the ones that sounded right. I'm the only user on this computer, although I might possibly maybe add another someone if I have to for some reason.

For my user account, I added myself to:
Code:
bin
disk
mem
kmem
wheel
floppy
mail
news
uucp
man
dialout
audio
video
cdrom
games
mysql
sshd
gdm
shadow
ftp
messagebus
haldaemon
plugdev
power
netdev
scanner
users
console
kismet
vboxusers

Basically, I want my own account to be able to do everything I normally do without too much restriction (use the disc drive, mount hard drives, browse the web, read/send email via Thunderbird, download stuff, etc), but leaving the important stuff to root so that if someone else happens to use the computer under my account, they can't do any damage. Did I select the right groups for this? Should I add or remove any? And what groups should a user have if I just want them able to browse the web, download files, use their /home, run non-root apps, and nothing else?

General :: Set Default User Groups For New Users?

I am building a livecd, the live user created at boot time is a member of the audio group set in /etc/group. This way works for the livecd but when installed a user must manually add himself to the audio group. How can I set new users to automatically become a member of the audio group? In /etc/default/useradd I can set only one group.

General :: How To Change User Groups Automatically

Jun 16, 2011

I've created a set of users using the newusers command. Unfortunatelly ive messed up and added all users to the 1000 group as primary group instead of giving the group argument as null what would add them to a new group. To make things clear:

The entries should be

user:password:::User Name:/home/user:/bin/bash

but I did

user:password::1000:User Name:/home/user:/bin/bash

I need to create the missing groups. A simple fix could be do a for loop creating a group with the name of each user in my file and then adding the users to it. Are there any dangers of doing it? What impact could this change have? Are there any safer ways?

A combination of the following commands:

Quote:

Add users to a group with the gpasswd command:

# gpasswd -a [user] [group]

To delete existing groups:

# groupdel [group]

To remove users from a group:

# gpasswd -d [user] [group]

If the user is currently logged in, he/she must log out and in again for the change to have effect.

Quote:

for i in (names)
do groupadd $i
gpasswd -a $i $i

Assuming I've created all users in group 1000 I could remove them from it with

Quote:

# gpasswd -d [user] [group]

General :: Setting Permissions For Specific User And Groups?

May 25, 2010

i wonder, why nobody has written about it ...

How can i grant permission for files to specific user or specific group ??

Updated:

We have 3 groups: "g12" ("u1" and "u2), "g34" and "g56".

"g12" should only read the file.

"g34" should write and read it.

"g56" should have all permissions (rwx).

And others should not access the file at all.

It shows up at the bottom of the running programs bar and then disappears. Well after having to completely re-install Ubuntu PPC 10.10 and installing all of the updates, User and group Administration still isn't working.. another app that would let me add my wife to my G4 Cube so she could use it?
