Ubuntu :: Can't Rename Folders Via Samba In Karmic?

Feb 17, 2010

I'm experiencing an odd problem under karmic where I can create and delete folders via Samba from an XP box, but I can not rename folders. I get an "acccess denied" message.I've been using linux and samba for years and I've never seen anything like this.My samba configuration is quite simple..... I'm wondering if this is a bug.

[global]
workgroup = HOUSE
server string = %h server (Samba, Ubuntu)

Ubuntu :: Rename Folders To Music's Id3 Tags?

Apr 22, 2011

Anyone know of an application that will rename a folder to the contents id3 tags?

My music directory is a mess with folder names. Not a big deal since I use Banshee to library everything. I have a fairly large music collection on my main hard drive(140gb) but I keep id3 tags clean.

I'm setting up an ftp server and it will be impossible to navigate the way the folders are now.

Something similar for movies would be cool too.

General :: Cannot Rename Or Delete Image Folders

May 20, 2011

I am happy to report I successfully setup a cloning station using Ubuntu 10.4 Lucid Lynx and Clonezilla. I learned the hard way you have to restore images to a hard drive of a larger size than the drive the image was ripped from. I had already ripped 6 or more images and have them in the Home_Partimag folder and cannot delete or rename these images. I want to remake these images and rip them from smaller hard drives. Any commands I can use to be able to do this?

General :: Recursively Rename Files/folders To Make Their Names Windows-friendly?

Jan 29, 2011

I have a bunch of files on a Ubuntu box, which have various characters in their filenames that Windows doesn't accept (mostly ":" and "*", but possibly others).What's the simplest way to get these all renamed and moved to a Windows machine? It's OK to replace these characters with something like "[colon]" and "[asterisk]".

Ubuntu :: Customize File Folders In Karmic?

May 27, 2010

Is there a way that I can download either a new folder management system for Ubuntu Karmic or at least customize the current one so it works better? I don't like when I'm trying to find a certain file such as a .mp3 and I can't sort it by the name of the artist or the name of the show? I know that the actual MP3 file as the meta data embedded into the file but with Ubuntu Karmic I can't seem to set it so it will display in the List Columns. When I tried to go to List columns to change the preferences it only gives me limited options of what I can display and most of them our useless such as MIME type, Octal Permissions, SELinux context, etc.. I want to have columns such as Name, artist, author, album, etc...

Ubuntu :: Hide Folders Or Files Without Adding Period "." To Rename File Or Folder

Jun 18, 2011

I am trying to hide some folders in Ubuntu Linux which are always hidden in Windows through File/Folder Attributes (attrib -h)

It is not an option for me to rename the folder from let's say "Ancient texts directory" to ".Ancient Texts Directory" because the programs associated with these files and shortcuts will not work in Windows. I would like to make the folder hidden by not renaming the folder. Is that so hard to ask?

Is there really no other way of making a folder or a file hidden in Linux just like in Windows by Applying Attributes? I Don't want to rename it by putting a dot in front of it. Moreover renaming a file by putting a dot in front of the name changes the position the folder appears in the list view. For some people this may be ridiculous, but for me with a few hundred files and folders and subfolders, this organisation is important, aside from the aforementioned reasons.

I need to maintain compatibility between the two operating systems' basic folder structure as i must use both Operating systems.

Ubuntu Servers :: Samba On Karmic With Two NIC - Connections?

Feb 24, 2010

My setup:
Ubuntu Karmic Server Edition 64 bit
Dell PowerEdge T610
4 internal NIC RJ45
1 add-on NIC Fibre 1 Gb
Samba 3.4.0
two shares intended for WIN clients

Connections: eth0 (the first internal NIC) is part of a private network of 4 servers connected to a Gb switch. this connections serves as a fast link among these servers to regularly transfer (backup) large quantities of data. Only I can utilise it from within the server room (among those servers, obviously).

eth0: 192.168.0.AA1 eth4 is the Intel add-on NIC with 1 GB fibre connections to the public network of our institution. This is the link/IP my WIN clints have to use to access their shares. eth4: 134.XXX.YYY.ZZ1

My Problem: Despite having including both interfaces in my smb.conf only the internal connection via eth0 lives up to my expectation and delivers up to 50 MB/s. All clients trying to connect via eth4 will be able to see and access the shares, but file transfers commence with speeds severely below 0,5 MB/s with lots of aborts and warnings from the WIN file explorer.

So I experimented with the setting "interfaces" in the global section of smb.conf --- to no avail. I even set samba only to eth4: same problem. Only way to get flawless & fast transfers is the way through eth0. The samba log files of the clients I tried do show some errors, but I fear I am unable to interpret them properly.

/etc/network/interfaces

Code:
# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
# and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).
# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback
# The primary network interface Intel Gb link via fibre
auto eth4

Ubuntu :: Difficulties Sharing Folders Using Samba?

Feb 21, 2011

I attempted to share my ~/Videos folder using the Folder Sharing dialog when right-clicking a folder in Nautilus. It started to install but failed partially spitting out some error that I didn't bother to read/write down. It asked me to restart which I did. But now when reattempting to share the folder, I get given the following message: 'net usershare' returned error 255: net usershare add: cannot create tmp file /var/lib/samba/usershares/:tmp0BRWpm

I've looked around for a thread for this particular error, but I can't find anything specific to the "cannot create tmp file" issue. I'm assuming it's some folder permission issue. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling samba from the Ubuntu Software Center.

Ubuntu :: Samba In Virtualbox - Sharing Folders With Win7?

Aug 11, 2010

Win7 x64 host with Virtualbox installed running Ubuntu 32bit guest OS. I have Samba installed and I am sharing a folder to have read access from Win7. The folders I tried to share (here 'folder1-3') have been added in the conf.d in etc/samba/ like this - I used these 3 variants, all showed the same problem:

Code:

[folder1]
path = /data/mp3
read only = yes
guest ok = yes

[code]....

While I can connect to all of these from Windows and map them in Windows Explorer, I am unable to serve those files using my FTP server that is running on Windows. The folders simply do not show up when I add them as folders to serve in FileZilla. The problem I am assuming is causing this is the fact that FileZilla is running as a different instance and not on an administrator level. I cannot however add any users to the permissions list on the Windows side. The 'security' tab of the mapped folder shows the following Users:

EVERYONE
root (Unix user
oot)
root (Unix group
oot)

None of these seem to have rights to 'read' or 'list folders', the only permissions listed are 'special permissions'. Does anyone know how I can assign the group EVERYONE privileges to read and list files and then be able to serve this shared folder through my Windows-run FTP server?

Ubuntu Networking :: Samba Doesn't Share Folders In 10.04?

Feb 18, 2011

I have been looking in the forums but I found no solution for my problem.I already configured Samba and I am sharing folders, printers, etc. (Samba, authentification mode = user, guest account = nobody, share the folder give access to them, enable the permission to access, write, etc.) and seems to be working well.I am trying to connect a Windows to my shared folder in Ubuntu. The only problem is that Samba rejects it and doesn't ask for the password. It just drop the users (from Windows and Ubuntu systems) that try to access to my folders.So when it do in a Terminal sudo smbpasswd -a USERNAMEand I type no password, then it works they everybody can access to those shared but when I type any password then it comes back to the same problem that Samba never asks for passwords and rejects the users.

So the solution would be just give no password to share the files, but the other problem is that every time I restart the user session (restarting the computer, logging out, etc.) it just comes back to the same problem that Samba drops the users and doesn't ask for the password. Seems that every time I restart the system just forgets that I set no password.Another thing is that when I set authentication mode = shareThen nothing works. No password, no access just is possible to see it.

General :: Samba Folders Unwritable?

May 16, 2011

I just recently built a new linux server Redhat Enterprise Linux 6 and installed Samba version 3.5.4-68.el6.I copied a configuration file from an old Linux Server (Redhat Enterprise Linux 3.0AS) with a properly running Samba version 3.07131 . To make sure that everything will be ok, I created the same group and added the users on that group and created the same directories with the file name and attributes as that of the old server. Evrything seems fine as I can see all the shared folders on the windows XP and windows 7 Machines until I tried to write something on those folder. I keep getting the message that the action is denied and I need permission to perform that action. I do not know what to do next, hence this post.Below is the copy of my configuration file.

# smb.conf(5) manual page in order to understand the options listed

Ubuntu :: After Kubuntu Upgrade From Karmic To Lucid On 32 Bit I686 Samba Script In /etc/init.d/ Gone

May 6, 2010

After a Kubuntu upgrade from Karmic to Lucid on a 32 bit i686 my samba script in /etc/init.d/ was gone. Is that simply a bug or something going wrong during the upgrade, in which case I restore the script from backup, or is there a new way to start/stop/restart... samba in Lucid? Samba is working just fine after the upgrade BTW, both for print and file sharing over a mixed network.

Ubuntu Security :: Clean Mask For Files And Folders Through Samba

Feb 9, 2010

Still working on the mask of files for shared folder. I now have a shared folder with the exact behavior I expect :
Code:
sudo addgroup share_group
sudo mkdir /media/volume/shared_dir
sudo chgrp share_group /media/volume/shared_dir
sudo chmod g+s /media/volume/shared_dir
sudo chmod 770 /media/volume/shared_dir
sudo setfacl -d -m group::rwx /media/volume/shared_dir
sudo setfacl -d -m other::--- /media/volume/shared_dir
emma@box:/media/volume/shared_dir$ ls -al
total 8
drwxrws---+ 2 root share_group 4096 2010-02-09 12:53 .
drwxr-xr-x 8 root root 4096 2010-02-09 11:58 ..
-rw-rw----+ 1 emma share_group 0 2010-02-09 12:53 test
By default, user from the group can modify this file. That's perfect.

I have define the share in Samba this way :
Code:
[share]
comment = Shared Folder
path = /media/volume/shared_dir
browseable = yes
guest ok = no
read only = no
hide dot file = yes
# force group = share_group
# create mask = 0660
# directory mask = 0770
# force create mask = 0660
# force directory mask = 0770

When drag & dropping a file in this share, here is the default mask:
Code:
emma@box:/media/volume/shared_dir$ ls -al
total 192
drwxrws---+ 2 root share_group 4096 2010-02-09 12:54 .
drwxr-xr-x 8 root root 4096 2010-02-09 11:58 ..
-rw-rwx---+ 1 emma share_group 6148 2010-02-09 12:54 .DS_Store
-rw-rwxr--+ 1 emma share_group 176684 2009-12-21 23:33 IMG_7487.jpg

So the dropped file have execution rights for the group, and read access for other. I expected it to have the same rights than the file created directly using the touch command. I tried to play with the mask options, without success. The file has been dropped from my mac, which is a Unix like OS. I guess that some authorization access are inherited from the original file, for the user and other parts. But where does the group authorization come from ? Moreover, is is possible to define in samba a default mask, whatever the authorization of the original file?

Ubuntu Servers :: Samba Users Able To Browse Folders With No Permission

Feb 11, 2011

I've set up smbd 3.4.7 on 10.04x64 LTS server. I've set up a couple shares and I'm having problems blocking access to certain directories using native file permissions. There is one directory that has folders for each sales rep to store their current list of quoted clients, I only want sales people to be able to browse the directories owned by themselves. Everything seems to be set up correctly in terms of user groups and permissions on the filesystem.

Below is marina, a sales rep, and brian, a super user of sorts.
id marina:
Code:
uid=1011(marina) gid=1006(office) groups=1006(office),1005(sales)
id nick:
Code:
uid=1000(brian) gid=1006(office) groups=1006(office),118(admin),1001(full),1002(processing),1003(management),1004(it),1005(sales)

Below is the directory with all the sales reps folders.
ls -la:
Code:
total 60
drwxrwxr-x 15 root it 4096 2011-02-10 20:06 .
drwxr-x--- 9 root office 4096 2010-11-19 12:40 ..
drwxrwx--- 13 katya full 4096 2010-12-07 12:36 Katya
drwxrwx--- 18 lana full 4096 2011-02-08 17:09 Lana
drwxrwx--- 23 marina full 4096 2011-02-10 18:09 Marina
drwxrwx--- 4 mike full 4096 2011-02-01 12:42 Mike

With this setup marina only be able to browse her folder, but she can browse all folders and has full write access to all folders. This leads me to believe something is up with the smbd.conf file, which is below.

Code:
[global]
workgroup = COMTREAD
null passwords = no
server string = Root Server
dns proxy = no
log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
max log size = 1000
syslog = 0 .....

In this case the valid users directive would not work cause I am not making a share for each user. I had this on other shares like the db2 share. My windows box lagged heavily when I tried to access that share with an invalid user. How to deny users the ability to modify permissions I would also like to do that.

Ubuntu Servers :: Maintaining Hidden Windows Folders With Samba

Sep 1, 2011

I've set up a ubuntu server at home with the intention of sharing files with windows clients, so I've installed samba. I have no security issues so I've allowed public access to the shares and I can access them fine from all windows machines. I also need to preserve the dos attributes for files and folders using 'map hidden', 'map system', 'map archive' which works great for files but not for folders. I've got a number of folders from my windows box which I would like to keep hidden (for tidiness more than anything) but when I transfer them to the samba share, they become visible again and I can seem to control their visibility at all from windows or from ubuntu. Do I take it from this that samba can only manage to maintain dos flags on files and not on directories?

This is the relevant part of the samba.conf file
Code:

[global]
log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
passwd chat = *Entersnews*spassword:* %n
*Retypesnews*spassword:* %n
*passwordsupdatedssuccessfully* .
map hidden = yes .....

[media]
comment = Shared files
path = /usr/media
