I have openldap server and i am authenticating with Redhat Directory Services(RHDS).I have confgured the RHDS for the user login giving /bin/bash as the login shell and joined the client machine using system-config-authentication.The user is able to login in connand line but below it gives the error : "cannot find name for group id <id number>"
I have a text file that currently has around 150 000 usernames in it. I need to somehow group them into smaller groups of 1000 and then add that value into the DB. for example user xzy group 1 (hopefully the groups will be digits incrementing)
how to search for 1000 then assign them group 1 and then 1001-1999 to group 2 etc.
i want secondary users can able to change the files permissions of primary group?user MAC is having www as a primary and httpd as secondary group. But he want to change the file permissions (chmod) httpd group files. Is it possible or not? I think its not possible. If it`s possible then let me know how?
I've been tasked with fixing a Red Hat system that dies with a kernel panic during the boot stage:
EXT3-fserror (dev sda1): ext3_check_descriptors: Inode bitmap for group 4 not in group (block 67239937)! EXT3-fs: group descriptors corrupted! mount: error mounting /dev/root on /sysroot as ext3: Invalid argument
I can boot into a Rescue CD, but I'm a bit out of my element because I don't use EXT3 myself, and I've never had to repair a corrupted file system before.
I have a group (GROUP) with a number of users. I recently added a new user (NEW). NEW is able to read but not write group files, whereas all the other users in the group can read and write to the group files. The permissions for the group files indicate that all members of group should have write permission -rwxrwxr-x
/etc/group indicates that NEW is a member of GROUP ... GROUP:x:501:GROUP,OLD,OLD2,OLD3,OLD4,....,NEW
Don't know if it matters, but both OLD and NEW write to the GROUP files over an internet connection. why NEW can't write to GROUP files? Is there a maximum number of members in a group that I might have exceeded?
I have a number of users, categorised into various groups. I would like one of those groups ("developers") to be in the wheel group as well. I don't want to just copy the people from the developers group into wheel, because then when that group changes I'll have to change it in two places. Is there a way to specify that anyone in developers is in wheel, and have that be dynamic?
A bit of an oddity that I've recently run into with my storage folder in my system; it's a newly installed drive that I've set to mount at /storage. When I first tried to use it, programs that I used that attempted to write to it tossed Access Denied errors at me in their own way. Checking the permissions (at the Terminal, ls -l / | grep storage) showed that /storage was set to 'rwxrwxr--'--Owner and Group were given full read/write/execute, but Others could only read. However, my logon to my system is a member of group root. Why, then, with the above bits set, would I not be able to write to it? Changing Others permissions to rwx (and presumably rw would have worked out for me since I don't leave anything executable there) allowed me to write to it, but I don't understand why that would have been necessary. So far as I'm aware, the prior drive that was in my system--mounted at the same location--did not need this treatment.
Is it possible to allow a group/user to execute a command, where one of the parameters of the command is a group as well? example that does not work as intended:
Code: Cmnd_alias SU=/bin/su -l %group1 This example works sortof, it treats the "%group1" literally. I know I can list out the "/bin/su -l <eachuser>", but as you can imagine that is impractical. In this example, I want people in group2(not shown for brevity sake) to be able to su to someone in group1
Im trying to change a group to have read write and execute permissions on everything in the system through command prompt, some people told me to edit the /etc/group file but i don't have a file that exists there under that name, but the group does already exist, i just don't know where its located. Anyone have a clue where i can check or what to do ?
this costed me a whole day of trying and retrying. I set up a small home server with apache, php, and mysql.
System infos: Linux 2.6.31-22-generic-pae Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Server edition Apache/2.2.12 (Ubuntu)
Until now, it served happily a couple of sites, with no problems. But now, I wanted to set up my ftp server to point to the same directory as one of the sites, for me to be able to upload and manage files via ftp. As a server I normally use proftpd. With my usual config, proftpd runs with its own user and simulates the user ftpuser:ftpgroup when creating files. So I just changed all the files to be owned by this user and group. Permissions set to 770.
Everything works fine, and I'm able to access the data via ftp. BUT, when I try to browse my site the usual way (i.e. point firefox to its address) a 403 forbidden error is issued. Of course, you will say: you didn't allow access to apache. Well, I remembered that right away, and added the user www-data to the ftpgroup user. Now I espect apache to be able to read and serve the files.
Still same problem. 403. The apache error log is full with "permission denied" errors. After many attempts, I logged in as the user www-data, and tested access to the files. This way I'm able to cd into the directory, and read-write the files with nano. As a test, I tryed the other way around. Setting www-data:www-data as the owner of the files, and adding the ftpuser to the www-data group. This way apache works, but proftpd does not. Most probably it has something to do with a misunderstanding of groups permissions or the way this two deamons access the files.
I have a remote server running Fedore Core 11 - 32bit. On a new install, I installed webmin (control panel). Now every time I want to install something I get the same error message: root XXXXXX # yum groupinstall web server Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: fedora. Please verify its path and try again.
i've configured my pc using 'sudo pppoeconf' and it worked fine, but when i rebooted my pc and tried to connect using 'pon dsl-provider' it says 'Error: only members of the 'dip' group can use this command'. I've added myself to the group and tried to connect but to no use.Im able to connect in windows without any issues.
I have corrupted or added an invalid sintax in somewhere. Therefore, the OS is not able to install packages. Can you instruct on how to fix this issue. So far, I was trying to install gnokii and after that my OS cannot install software or package updates.I am lost and I worried I have to install again the OS.
I have been using CentOS 5. for around 3 months. It was all fine and was having a pleasant experience using CentOS. Today when i turned on my computer and booted CentOS i am having the below error: Grub comes up, allows me to select CentOS 5.4 kernel image. and displays RedHat Nash version: and then the below error occurs:
I have a problem when I want to use su I get this error:Code:su: pam_start: error 26I have googled it so I found this topic (http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...r-26-a-615024/) but it didn't really help me. There was a reply on that topic and his question was what the output of this was:
I got this error message when installing Fedora 11 by an installlation DVD (download from [URL]) Unable to read group information from repositories. This is a problem with the generation of your install tree. This error message appeared after the step that the installer asked me to choose where to install boot loader and configure the GRUB boot menu. The error message came with two button: [Retry] and [Exit installer].
I have a set of two amd64 machines with Debian Lenny. Machine 2 reads all the users' information from the Machine 1 through LDAP. Also, in Machine 2 I set up a dchroot environment for 32 bits compatibility ( following [URL]
In addition to the above instructions, on this Machine 2, I set up /etc/libnss*, /etc/ldap/*, and /etc/nsswitch.conf both for the amd64 and for the i386 environments. I have no problems if I'm in the native amd64 mode. However, once I enter the i386 dchroot, some strange things happen:
1) For users from uid=1000 to uid=1031, I get an error if running 'whoami' (Cannot find name for user ID XXXX) and if I run 'id' , I get all the correct group numbers but no translation to group names in parenthesis as it should be. 'ls -l' also only lists group numbers but no names.
2) for user 1032 I cannot even change into the dchroot, I get the error "E: Group '1,031' not found"
I am trying to dual boot Vista and F10 and I have 2 different 400GB hard drives to do it on. On the first HD, I have Vista installed but when I try to install F10 on the second, I get this error message:
Quote: Error: Unable to read group information from repositories. this is a problem with the generation of your install tree. I've looked it up and found some forums but none answer how to "fix" it (if it is indeed something that you fix).
I'm doing a Kickstart install of Fedora 11 with a DVD ISO as the installation source and the ks.cfg file in the root folder of the DVD. The error message I get is: "Unable to read group information from repositories. This is a problem with the generation of your install tree."
I'm running RHEL 5. When using the GUI System>Administration>Users and Groups, I get the error: The user database cannot be read. This problem is most likely caused by a mismatch between /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow or /etc/group and /etc/gshadow. The program will exit now.
Some research showed that I need to use vipw and vigr respectively to find an inconsistency between these two sets, which I did - to make it easy I copied each from [vipw | vigr] to an excel file and did =exact(%1, %2). There are no inconsistencies.
