Server :: File Permissions Being Stripped On New Files Via NFS

Feb 3, 2010

I'm having an issue that I've seen before on other OS's (Solaris), but I'm coming up blank on solving for an NFS mount shared from RedHat I've googled this, and looked through all the FAQs and mail lists I can find.

The issue is this:

Whenever a new file is created from an NFS client to an NFS mounted file system, the group and world permissions are being stripped such that any new file created ends up with 0600 as the file permissions. On the server, I have tried various sharing options (all_squash, anonuid, anongid, no_acl) with no luck. I've looked at the underlying mount point ownership and permissions, checked the file system acl's (getfacl...they match the visible file system), and set the custom SELinux (not mine) config to permissive. The file system is on an LVM partition, and has an SELinux group assigned in /etc/fstab. I've unmounted it, and performed a vanilla mount (no options). No amount of trial and error is working. Any file created by any user on an nfs client machine creates files with 0600 permissions, and local users on the nfs server create files with permissions based off their umask settings. I originally thought it was due to mismatches in permissions from Windows to Linux (The server also NFS shares to Windows 2K boxes using hclnfsd (PC/NFS)), but I confirmed the same issue between RedHat systems.

One thing I'm wondering from my reading. It's mentioned in many places that ownership should be root in most cases and not some other user. This entire file structure is owned by a user that is ONLY local to the server box (long story, but the box is isolated....no DNS and only local users and settings).

Debian Configuration :: How To Configure Samba For A Stripped Down File Server

Dec 3, 2015

I am trying to configure samba for a stripped down file server. I am running debian with command line only. My problem is that I cannot unmask samba.

See below:

root@debian:/home/aaron# service samba status
● samba.service
Loaded: masked (/dev/null)
Active: inactive (dead)

I have tried "sudo systemctl unmask samba.service". I receive no errors however it does not actually unmask. I can't find anything online regarding a service stuck on masked status.

Ubuntu :: File Permissions For Copied Files On External HDD?

Mar 24, 2010

I'm sure that the issue I'm having is easily solvable once I gain some understanding about copying files - and file permissions in Ubuntu. Here's my situation:

I have an external HDD where I like to back up some files (I mess around with distros on my main machine and feel less stressed knowing the important stuff is backed up). I have an ext4 partition on the external drive where I have copied files, both through the terminal (cp 'filename' /dev/sdc3) and by drag and drop (gnome-terminal).

The problem is, once the files are copied, most are inaccessible. I can view them, but some directories and individual files say I do not have permission to open them. Others are accessible. This is from the same user profile that copied them.

How do I see what's going on? More importantly, how do I make files on external drives available to any user or OS (that can handle ext4)? I want to make sure that if my whole system gets effed that I could still do a reinstall of my OS and then access those backup files.

Ubuntu :: Can't Change The File Permissions Of Files And Folders

Nov 17, 2010

I've just read that I can't change the file permissions of files and folders if they are sitting in what was my old Windows D: drive. Is this correct? If so what is the work-around?

I don't want to have to cut and paste that entire D: drive's contents over to a recognised Ubuntu folder. I had in my mind that this D drive would continue to be my data dumping ground, to which I need read/write access to.

Software :: VFat File System - No Permissions To Delete Files

Feb 21, 2010

I have the cowon iAudio7 music player with vfat file system and increasingly running into permission problems when I try to delete files. Unsurprisingly I am now running out of space. I am figuring if I could somehow mount it onto a folder in my home partition I will have full permissions. The problem is the drives name which is exactly with space: So even if try to delete files in the terminal I don't know how to cd into:

Code:
/media/I AUDIO7
note the space between I & AUDIO7.

Server :: Permissions On New Files / Folders?

Apr 26, 2010

I have a Samba share set up on a SUSE server that about 30 Windows XP clients are connecting to on a daily basis. They connect using Winbind and their Active Directory usernames and passwords which are stored on a Windows small business server (Server 2003). The share is called "company" and it's right off the root of the partition. Within "company" there are about 75-100 folders, most of which need to be publicly available and publicly writeable. There are a few that need to be locked down to a certain group of people so I've used group membership and access control lists for those.

The permissions on new files/folders still aren't right though, so I'll just try to explain what I WANT rather than trying to resolve what is HAPPENING since I think that'll be easier. Currently the entire company directory and all subdirectories and files are user-owned by "administrator" (an active directory domain admin). I'd like new folders and files created anywhere in that directory or any subdirectory to maintain that ownership by administrator, regardless of who creates them.

Likewise, the entire directory and all subdirectories/files are group-owned by "domain users" (a builtin active directory group which is pulled in via winbind) which gives everyone write access to everything. I'd like that ownership to be maintained as well on any new files or folders created in /company or any subdirectory therein. I think this is working for the most part as I've set the setgid bit on company. I'd like any files or folders created in /company or any subdirectory therein to have 770 permissions (rwxrwx---).

So, what I want is regardless of who creates a file or folder anywhere in "company" - it should be owned by user "administrator" and group "domain users" and have 770 permissions. I'd like to make a little tweak to this post. Above I said I wanted anything created under Company to be created with group owner "domain users" - that actually only goes for anything that will be public. On the folders I have locked down via group membership and ACLs the new files/folders created within should maintain ownership of whatever group owns that directory. I should be able to do this by setting rwxrws--- permissions on secured directories.

Ubuntu :: Running Executable Text Files And Permissions And File Types

Nov 10, 2010

I checked the 'Run executable text files when they are opened' option in Nautilus preferences. I have noticed that files such as .sh and .bin launch by simply clicking on then (which is great). However I have also noticed that an ordinary .txt and .html file must not be marked as executable in order to launch it in Gedit and Firefox respectively via clicking. Otherwise you must right click and open with every time. What file types need to have execute permissions? What file types never need to have execute permissions?

Server :: RHEL 5 - How To Set Permissions On Files / Folders

Jul 1, 2010

I am using RHEL 5 on my server. The client machines are windows XP.File sharing is through samba server which is working okay. On this file server there is a shared directory for users. This directory contains files which are used by various users through oracle APP. and DB server.

At present the folders under the "shared" folder are having all permissions i.e. 777. To restrict certain things, I want that users may read and modify the files but may not be in a position to move or delete the files. How to set the permissions on the folders/files in this scenario?

Debian :: Suid And Writing Files Permissions In The ET Server?

Feb 22, 2010

I have tried to configure an Enemy Territory Server in an way that a common user could run it just executing a command line. The first thing I did was writing a script like that

/usr/local/games/enemy-territory/etded +set dedicated 1 +set net_port 27960 +set fs_game etpub +set fs_homepath /usr/local/games/enemy-territory/27960 +set sv_punkbuster 1 +set +exec server.cfg +set +exec punkbuster.cfg +set +exec bots.cfg

and then putting it in the /usr/local/bin directory. Ok, the things seem to be fine, but then I realized that the program tries to write some config and log files. I noticed that because some warnings appear in the command line, like that Couldn't write etconfig.cfg always that I run the command as a normal user. On the other hand, if I give writing permission to these files, all the warnings disapear.
But I don't think it is a good way, because someone could change these files by hand, what would not be good.

My last try was to set the suid of the script up, with the command chmod u+s /usr/local/bin/etded-server
But as I already knew that suid does not work well with shell script I wrote a C source like that:

Server :: Proftpd - Not Have A Permissions To Save Files Or Try To Modify

Mar 31, 2010

just thought i would throw this out there as a google search doesnt even come back with what i need. I have setup proftp with a mysql auth on a debian box. When i save files or try to modify them i get an error. Ie i dont have permission. When i look at the permissions for the files, it has a 2001 user permission and a ftpgroup as the group permission.

I want it to be ftpuser and ftpgroup with readable and writable permissions for the user and group. This is my second proftp box and i basiclly copied the config files over from the old box.

Server :: File Permissions After FTP Upload?

Jun 9, 2009

I have just started using linux. I have setup an ubuntu apache2 server. It has been running brilliantly and I am highly impressed with the Linux system. My box is an HTTP server and I am hosting a website on it. I have VSFTPD installed and functioning as my FTP software. It has worked fine so far but I have been a bit annoyed that I have had to set permissions for each file I have put on there.

Now I have run into a serious issue with the permissions being set to 600 and I really need them to 755 because I am running an automatic upload for a webcam and the Image can't be accessed due to the automatic permissions of 600 being set to the image. My extensive windows background tells me that I need to apply the correct permissions to the WWW folder and get the files to inherit these permissions automatically.

Ubuntu Servers :: Server Process Created Files Permissions

Nov 20, 2010

Currently have access to a VPS where we are running a small game server on ubuntu - the problem is that it is a multi-user environment, so when one person restarts the server process, all files it creates are owned by that users name and group. I have created a group called 'game' and added both users to it, but I need to know how to make all files in the game server's directory to be r/w/x for the group 'game'. Currently, I have a script that chowns and chmods all files recursively on startup, but I'd prefer not having to do this.

Ubuntu Servers :: File Permissions Server 10.10 ?

Mar 16, 2011

Trying to setup a file server for a small group of users and I am in need of help with file permissions with Ubuntu Server 10.10.

I have a single share mapping (ex /media/hdd1/share1). There are several folders that everyone will need read/write/edit permissions and there will be a few folders that all users will need read permissions and a couple of users will need read/write/edit permissions.

I have tried several things and as long as I create the folders/files through ssh using sudo, the permissions are fine, but when the users create file and folders through their computers (mixture of Windows and Mac) that user becomes the owner and no one else can write or edit those files.

I am using SAMBA and though it was a config issue with that but I logged each user directly into the server with the same issue.

I tried sudo chmod 777 /media/hdd1/share1 but all newly created files have the above issue.

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.

Server :: Samba Permissions - Files & Directories Can't Be Renamed / Moved / Deleted

Feb 10, 2010

After what feels like weeks have tinkering around trying to get a Samba file server set up, I've finally given up! I have 4 drives and 2 groups:

1) Dev - Available to all users in both groups (normal and admin)
2) Misc - Available to users in admin group only
3) Admin - Available to users in admin group only
4) Accounts - Available to users in admin group only

Drives 1 and 2 are working fine, with the correct access rights. Drives 3 and 4 can be browsed by admins only, but no changes can be made at all - files & directories can't be renamed/moved/deleted. What is most confusing is that Drive 2 is set up exactly the same as Drives 3 and 4. The process I went through to get them working:

Ubuntu Servers :: Cannot Change File Permissions On Server

Aug 25, 2010

I'm working on a remote Ubuntu 9.10 server, which is accessed via VPN. I installed Joomla, but had difficulty uploading new components, which I traced to a file permissions problem. I used FileZilla to FTP onto the site and tried to make the chmod changes I needed, but the commands kept failing. Eventually, I contacted the sys admin and told him I thought that there was an ownership problem with the directories. He checked and told me that I was logging in with exactly the same user name and password that he was using (it's not a live system currently) and that he could make chmod changes without any problems. Because all my attempts were still failing, he eventually did the following:

chown -R administrator:administrator /var/www

/var/www is where all the Joomla files are stored and Administrator is the user name.Now I find that when I run a chmod command in FileZilla, the server reports that it worked (see below):

Status:Connected
Status:Retrieving directory listing...
Command:CWD /etc

[code].....

However, if I go back and check the tmp folder permissions, I find that they are still set to 777.This still looks like an ownership problem to me, but I don't understand why the server seems to think that the chmod changes are working, when they aren't.

Server :: Rsync To Windows / File Permissions & Owners?

Feb 7, 2010

Don't ask me why, but I need to back up a website with complete structure to a windows machine (so no tar/gzip - just an identical copy). I'm experienced with rsync, so I thought to do it that way. However, in the process I'm bound to lose my ownership/permission settings for each file and that will give problems when placing back certain files. Is there a way to either:

1. save those settings on a windows machine?
2. have an easy way to save the filetree with relevant information and a shell script to attach the info back when uploading files again?

Server :: File Access Permissions - Working With Groups And Users?

Sep 15, 2009

Having set up many windows servers with complex permissions on shared folders, I now have to do the same in Linux (and I'm such a noob to Linux) I understand that each file/folder is assigned a user + group, and that the rights can be set for the user, the group and global (aka everybody else) My challenge is this, inside my shared folder there is a folder that should be RW to some users, READ ONLY to others, and not accessible at all to the rest of the users. (lets call the folder MyFolder ) All 3 groups have more than 1 user, so they have to be groups (right?) How would this model work in Linux ? If there is no other way, I guess I can nest the MyFolder in a folder that has permissions to allow all users that may access MyFolder, and block the rest, then on MyFolder, set owner group the RW users, and set global to READ ONLY.

Ps : The server I'm setting up runs Debian Lenny, files will be accessed from windows workstations using samba.

CentOS 5 :: Restore Default File Permissions - Server Nonfunctional

Dec 4, 2009

I was working on a shell script to change the permissions of large directories and subdirectories because of an exploit discovered in the programs that run in those said directories that allow a client to upload and download files to the server. Loan behold I accidentally added a space and had something along the lines of "chmod -R 770 ." run on / logged in as root.

Yes, it was an incredibly noob move on my part, but nothing ventured nothing gained. I am surprisingly calm about this. I tried sliding in my CentOS installation disk and "Upgrading" CentOS but that only made it worse, beforehand I made everything owned by root so I could at least log into GNOME. This does not work for obvious reasons, namely having to change the permissions back for every user and every group, which far beyond a possibility.

Fedora :: Large Filesystem Can It Be Stripped Down

Apr 8, 2010

Well I was looking into backing up my system and with some excellent help from remeeraz in another post just realized how big the filesytem for fedora was. On my system at least its showing 10GB of used space. Now im not sure if that includes the swap file aswell but as explained in another post I have the 210MB filesystem location and the the 320GB LVM2. From my limited understanding it seems the lvm2 location ecompasses the swap and the filesystem but does not explicitly show the swap location and in any event shows the full size of the drive.

once i have backed this core system up so I dont have to worry about ballzing it again how can i strip the installation to a more managable size like to fit on a DVD, im not talking about saving pictures or movies just the base install as thats all i have right now anyway.
