Ubuntu :: How To Map Domain Users To Local Users Group
May 27, 2011
how to map all domain users form group Domain Users to local group users (and maybe some more)? Im using Ubuntu 10.04 x32. Its connected to my domain using Samba and Winbind, I can login using my domain credentials, automatically map user folder form DFS server, but I think that domain users have too much priviledges in the system and want to restrict them as much as possible
I have server 9.04 and joined thru winbind to Windows Domain and subversion installed.Windows AD users can use their own credentials to join and everything is working fine.However the group svn which is used to access the repos in /etc/groups has some users.However I would like to add the domain users group to the svn group but the domain users contains Space. And /etc/groups does not happend to read the space any ideas on how to add "domain users" to the svn group in /etc/groups
I have Ubuntu server 10.04 joined to a domain using Likewise Open. I can login using my domain credentials and have added my domain account to the sudoers file. Now that I've got it joined to the domain I want to add some samba shares and have domain members use their accounts to access them. However, no matter what combination of my domain name and the domain user or group I use in the valid users field it won't let me in. What's the proper way of inputting a domain user or group in the valid user field?
This is the entry I'm using for the share:
Code: [testshare] path = /srv/testshare valid users = @"Domain Name+Domain Group" (Have tried many things here) public = no writable = yes printable = no create mask = 0765
When I have different people log into our ftp and browse to the same folder, some people see the files inside, some don't. all the user accounts are in the same group, which has permission to this folder. but the one user who can see the files is the owner. how can i fix it so everyone in that group who's the owner of the folder can see the files?
In other Linux distros I've used, new users are assigned to their own group (i.e. user 'joe', group 'joe') by default. To my surprise, when I create new users with my openSUSE 11.4, they are all assigned to the 'users' shared group by default.To test this, I created a new user called 'friends'. From my terminal, I can see how the new user files look like:
joe@linux:~> ls -l /home/friends/ total 40 drwxr-xr-x 2 friends users 4096 Sep 3 11:37 bin
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 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?
At work, we run Windows... Windows domain, windows workstations, etc. Today my boss asked me my thoughts on running an Ubuntu lab within the mixture of our existing Windows setup.
Well, that brought several questions to mind. So I understand you can bind an Ubuntu computer to a Windows domain, seems easy enough, whether you do it through Samba or the other guide I read that I kind of forget at the moment, but anyway...
I was just curious how Ubuntu interacts with domain users when on the windows domain. For example, if we have an Ubuntu machine on the Windows domain with a local user "administrator" and that's it, would any domain users be able to log into the Ubuntu work station, similar to how it is on Windows?
The company I work for, as usual, is Microsoft-centric. I'm attempting to integrate my Ubuntu server into the domain to allow domain users to authenticate to the server and access file shares using Samba. Here's my current configuration:
I have a postfix mail server on ubuntu 10.04 lts behind a router. so all local users are fetching/sending mails through ms outlook using local IP. Sometimes when internet goes down and any mail send then it bounced back immediately saying domain not found. Can u please tell me how i configure to hold all mails in postfix server rather than bounce when internet fails and will pass through when restored the internet around 15-30 minutes?
What is the group 'users' (gid 100) for? It's tempting to use it as a general group for accounts that log in but would that cause a security risk? I've done a search for files owned by this group and there don't appear to be any. Googling the words gives very non-specific results!
I need to assign permissions for ftp users. For that I need to create groups with different permissions like upload, download, rename, delete, rename and delete. And the users added to the group need to have that group permissions by default.
I've been asked by my professor to add the list of users to a linux server (not sure of the OS type I think he said debian) but anyway. He gave me this script to add users.
Code: #!/bin/bash # Script to add a user to Linux system if [ $(id -u) -eq 0 ]; then read -p "Enter username : " username read -s -p "Enter password : " password egrep "^$username" /etc/passwd >/dev/null if [ $? -eq 0 ]; then echo "$username exists!" exit 1 else pass=$(perl -e 'print crypt($ARGV, "password")' $password) useradd -m -p $pass $username [ $? -eq 0 ] && echo "User has been added to system!" || echo "Failed to add a user!" fi else echo "Only root may add a user to the system" exit 2 fi
I need to see if I can get this script to read a file that list the usernames and their passwords using the pipe command (or some similar command) so I can just do it in one batch. I've done some searching but there are so many vairiations of the code that I've confused myself. Also, I'm not too familiar with linux, it's been a few years since I've used it but in the prior script, I need to add the users to an existing group named "forensics". Which line would I change/add in order to do this?
I want to implement quota per group users like this: Assume i have a Student group in my system, that student1 and student2 and student3 are three users in this group. i want to set quota 100GB per each user in this group, 100GB for student1, 100GB for student2 and .... The problem is when i set quota per group i cant say each user in that group have 100GB quota limit, also when i set quota per user, i should set one by one for each user.I want to know, is there anyway for set quota for all users in specific group?
I'm using Slackware with NFS share and I've been wondering why I had problems with access to some folders and I finally figured out that NFS limits group membership only to 16. Is there a simple way to circumvent this in Slackware?
I'm using squeeze. hal allows any user (at least, ones logged into the console) the ability to automount any removable drive that is plugged in. I want to restrict the ability to automount to users who are in the group that owns the device node for the drive (some distributions use the "plugdev" group for this.) I know I can turn off automount individually in each desktop, but seeing as hal is the thing that runs as root and is actually doing the mounting, it seems to make the most sense to change the setting in hal.
I want to apply the same settings of Gnome among a group of users. I configured a "master"-user and exported his Gnome settings using
Code: gconftool-2 --dump > gnome_settings.xml For the other users, where the settings from the "master"-user shall apply, I did Code: gconftool-2 --load gnome_settings.xml
While most of the settings were set properly, I am missing the links for Firefox and OpenOffice in the panel which I had configured. How I can copy the Gnome settings from one user to another, including links to Firefox and OpenOffice in the main panel?
I want to add some users to multiple groups. syntax of the file to pass to ldapadd? or would I use lapmodify? Does one add/modify a user record to specify the groups that user is a member of? Or does one add/modify each group record to specify which users are members?
i added users to the group om PDC after it i shared folder on linux server and given permission for users from this group, the folder is showed correct. After it i removed users from group, but the folder is accessible. Where is mistake?
[global] workgroup = STSCOMPANY password server = *
This is the scenario: Active Directory Server = 192.168.0.1 Squid/Dansguardian Proxy Server w/NTLM Auth = 192.168.0.10 The Linux box has been integrated with AD and works fine. Users can authenticate automatically when login the AD or when they access the web through Basic authentication. That part is just fine.
But, when I add a new user, or change a users' primary group, I have to change the 'filtergroups' file in Dansguardian. I tried to make auto this process using the USERMAP and USERMAP2 scripts in [URL].. at the "Extras and Add Ons" section, but both scripts doesn't run properly in Ubuntu if they are not changed. I tried, following the instructions, but got a lot of syntax errors. So, I wrote a very simple script using 'net rpc' to retrieve all users according to the AD Security and Domain Groups. I created an output folder in dansguardian to dump the rpc outputs into files. And read the files to apply filtering groups.
In my ongoing hunt for a Samba GUI that is feature packed, well supported, easy to use, yet doesn't suck, I found myself tinkering with eBox. I have it installed and fired up but I'm a little confused. I can add a Samba share - okay great. But I sorta need to add users. Where on earth can I add users? The users and group section of eBox doesn't appear to be related to what I need, and I also cannot get into the access control section of the very share I just created.
i just want to prevent from now on from all users maybe even root from adding other users to groups like wheel for example. I also want to know how can I prevent from all users to create new groups or add users to new one.real
I want to set a log off script for samba domain users. Actually I am facing a huge temp files related problem. So I want to set a batch file which will run when domain user log off. When user logout then batch file run and delete all temp files.I have already set batch file local group policy and it works for me, but I wants to set it from server side.
