Ubuntu Networking :: Making Mounted File Systems Available On Remote Machines Using SSH?

Dec 19, 2010

if this a simple question I apologise, I'm using a SSH connection to a remote machine which also has ubuntu installed, my remote machine is connected to a windows server, using <places> <Network> and clicking on the server, doing this mounts the server into my remote file systemWhen i look around the file system of the remote machine i'm unable to make the windows server resource available to me.I Assume it has a service file in the /dev directory, but would not know what its called or what i would have to do with it.In the mean time i've managed to connect directily to the server from my local machine, (which is probbialy a better solution) but is it possible to see the server via my remate machine?

Server :: How To Monitor That CIFS File Systems Are Mounted

Jan 14, 2010

We recently had an issue with "cat /proc/mount" telling us that a CIFS file system was mounted, even though the mount was not working correctly. So we're not sure if we can trust linux to report malfunctioning mounts, so we're planning on adding a specific file on the mounted file system, and verify the mount by reading this file from the client side (linux). If linux fails to read it, we know that the mount have failed. But before we go ahead doing this I thought I'd just hear how others are doing this sort of thing - how do you make sure that mount points are up and working?

EDIT: I just saw that I've posted in the security area, not in the server area. How do I move it?

Ubuntu Networking :: Samba Sharing Of A Mounted Remote Volume?

Apr 21, 2011

I'm running 10.04 server on a Mac G5 with 2 network interfaces, one pointing to my network (192.168.0.x) and the other to a local partner network (192.9.100.x) with which we share a network volume to give/take PDF files.My client environment is MAC OS X (from 10.4 to 10.6) and until now only one client (with 2 nics) was connected to that volume: we don't have layer3 switches to do static routes over the two networks, so I decided to use my Ubuntu Server Mac to do this (it's also my new syslog server...).

Nics are configured correctly, and the local share (192.168.0.x) is well seen by everybody.But, when I mount the remote volume (192.9.100.x) to THAT shared folder, nobody is able to connect to the samba share (that now lists the remote volume directory...). The MAC OS X tells "unable to unmount the volume". IP forwarding is also activated on /etc/sysctl.confHere is a part of my smb.conf file

Networking :: Distributed File Systems

Jan 21, 2010

Last year I was looking into fault-tolerant distributed file systems and I recall one kernel-based system that required a physical partition on each machine in the cluster, but would treat it as a single volume - ie. a write on one server would appear on the disk on all the servers.Unfortunately I didn't bookmark the specific system I was looking at, and now a year later I can't remember the details.What I don't want is NFS - a single file server with a file system mounted on various machines. What I do want is mirroring - one disk shared among multiple servers, so that if one server dies, it doesn't make any difference to the rest of them.

A bit of investigation turned up Red Hat's GFS, which kind of looks like what I want, but looks more and more like an NFS model to me. I was wondering what everyone's opinion of the various options out there were.

Ubuntu Networking :: Home Network - Setting Up File Sharing Between Two Machines

Nov 15, 2010

I'm having issues setting up file sharing between two Linux machines. I've tried the forum cookie cutter answer of "right click folder, sharing options, share, allow others to write and edit, allow guest accounts", but I simply cannot get my two Ubuntu 10.10 machines to see each others shared files. I HAVE been able to download and use the program "Personal File Sharing", and with it I CAN share the "Shared" folder between both machines. I'd prefer to learn the correct way to link these two boxes up though, and be able to share more than 1 directory. Am I missing any programs to complete this link? Do I need to use Samba? I've tinkered with it, and I can get both computers to see a workgroup name I set up, but cannot get them to view each other in it.

Ubuntu Networking :: File And Printer Sharing Between Wired And Wireless Machines

Apr 28, 2011

I have:
1) A desktop PC running Ubuntu 10.04 and a Virtualbox guest, Windows XP. My printer is connected and operates via XP. Yep, its a Windows-only printer, but the VB file-sharing allows me to print Ubuntu files.
2.) Another desktop running Puppy Linux.
3.) A netbook running XP as a native install.

No. 1 and 2 are connected to a Level One router by ethernet cable. No. 3 is wireless. All 3 machines work fine independently, with no problems accessing the internet. Getting these machines to "see" each other seems to be harder than falling off a log! How to share files and the printer, especially on how to configure the router. The manual that came with it doesn't seem to explain how to do this. It assumes that all your devices are either wired or wireless, with no hints about how to network wired and wireless machines together.

Ubuntu Networking :: How To Test Cifs Is Actually Mounted In Script File

Mar 12, 2010

I would like to be able to test that a network mounted cifs(samba) share is actually mounted in a script file to do backups. I want to do this so that when my automatic backups run they actually go to the remote location or fail. Currently, if there is a network problem that prevents the network share from mounting, the files simply get copied to the folder (e.g. /media/backupmount) and end up filling up my small local hard drive.

OpenSUSE Install :: Unable To Use Remote Connections Like RDP And VNC To Both Windows Machines?

Aug 12, 2010

The geek-in-me won and I bought a spiffy little Acer Aspire One netbook, windows 7 starter installed. Now I take it to clients' workplaces instead of my 19" laptop (that I also bought because the geek-in-me won that time too).

So what do I install in the Suse/openSUSE range? I want a lightweight Linux, like Meego or openSUSE with a light Desktop. I need to be able to use remote connections like RDP and VNC to both Linux and windows machines, so maybe Meego can't do that? But maybe openSUSE with a very light Desktop will. I'll use gmail from the netbook, no need for Thunderbird etc. I like to have multimedia.

Networking :: Programs Cannot Create Temp Files On Nfs-mounted NTFS File System?

Jun 14, 2010

I have an NTFS file system nfs-automounted on our RedHat servers. Users can read and write to the file system no problem, and can create new files, edit them, and delete them to their heart's content. The only issue is that utilities such as "dos2unix" cannot create temporary working files:

$ dos2unix events.0818.dat
dos2unix: converting file events.0818.dat to UNIX format ...
Failed to open output temp file: Operation not permitted
dos2unix: problems converting file events.0818.dat

This isn't limited to "dos2unix"; any other utility that creates a temporary working file gets the same problem. If I copy the file to a local file system like /tmp, it works fine. Here's the kicker: this works fine on Solaris systems. I can take the "dos2unix" utility over to a Solaris system that has that exact same NTFS file system automounted via NFS, and it works. No issues creating temporary working files at all.

Debian Configuration :: Making Server Acessible For Remote Control From Web

Sep 30, 2010

I've gotten VNC setup and working well on our LAN. The next step we want to do is making it acessible from the web, so we can remotely do things with the office files.Unfortunately, I have no idea how to go about this.Our current setup is a router which connects to the phone line, and into which other devices are connected. We're in one room of a big office building which may complicate matters somewhat.Can anyone provide a bit of general info on this topic. Give me somewhere to start ?Ultimately we want to be able to connect to the vnc port from anywhere in the world.

Fedora Installation :: VNC Level 3 Installation - Remote Into The System Via My Windows Xp Systems

Sep 15, 2009

What I'm trying to do at this point is setup VNC so I can remote into the system via my windows xp systems. I have VNC installed on those computer and I was able to get GNOME's remote desktop operating when I log in on level 5 and actually logged into my user account. However, when I'm not logged in on level 5 it will reject connections entirely. Ultimately I want to remote into the system using tightVNC and view the level 3 (command line only) thing, and allow me to telinit - 5 to switch to gui if I need it from VNC on the windows system. This way I don't need a monitor, keyboard and mouse plugged into the server. Right now that's what I'm having to do.

The problem is that it doesn't run in level 3 at all and level 5 (gui mode) doesn't work if i'm not logged into an account. So how can I get this to work at as a constant running server no matter what level and login point i'm at? Ultimately for this Linux admin class I have to setup a working server and I figured I'd get a base setup with VNC support that I could log into from school to work off of instead of having to use the local connection. Once I get VNC working on my network i'm pretty sure I can get it working beyond my local network.

Here's some commandline stuff that may diagnose my issues:

Code:

As you can see I'm having issues with the libstdc++ lib being detected. I have it installed, but apparently not everything is setup properly. I also have an RPM file for VNC and I've tried to install it with the gnome shell but it gives me an error: "Can't install /home/[user]/Download/vnc-4_1_3-x86_linux.rpm as no transaction" I'm not sure what that means. When I use the command line I get this:

Ubuntu Networking :: Universal Network Folder Syntax For The Network And Other "special" File Systems?

Jun 16, 2011

Paths displayed in Nautilus appear to be just that. Nautilus private syntax. Esp with respect to anything "special". Apparently when you hand a path like this to a program to open, you get a folder in your home directory: smb://cyberstorm/c_drive/

At least that is what my program does with it. A folder called smb: in my home directory. Probably because the default folder for the program is the home directory [~]. Is there a universal network folder syntax for the network and other "special" file systems?

I see things like: network:/// and computer:/// showing up in "properties" dialogs for some things. But these are useless to a program apparently.

At least a program written in Qt. Is this a Qt problem, or a problem with Ubuntu not yet making the network a first class citizen in the world of paths? Who do I complain to? Time for the network to be a first class citizen, right?

General :: Cannot Change File Permissions On A Mounted File System

Apr 6, 2010

I have an ntfs partition that I wish to access as a normal user(non-root). For this I did the following. As root I created a folder /windows and did a chmod 777 -R on /windows. Then I added the following line to /etc/fstab

Code:

/dev/sda3 /windows ntfs-3g defaults,nosuid,nodev,umask=000 1 0

Now, the partition is mounted alright but the problem is that when any other user (non-root) creates a files in /windows (say by executing touch newfile) the newly created file has the owner and group set as root. The non-root user can create the file and he can also delete the file, however, he cannot change the permissions of the file and also the owner:group is always set as root:root. How do I get across this problem, i.e. how do I mount a partition, so that a non-root user can also change the permissions and ownerships of the files he creates.

Ubuntu Servers :: JFS - XFS Processes - None Of File Systems Use XFS Nor JFS

Jun 22, 2011

After an update recently I noticed that my process count jumped up quite a bit. Somehow it doesn't seem related (it was an apt update I believe), but I'll just throw it out there. All of the extra processes seem to be related to XFS and JFS file system kernel processes, but none of my file systems use XFS nor JFS, just EXT3 & EXT4. Is there any safe/easy way to kill off these processes and prevent them from re-spawning? I don't find having irrelevant idle processes to be beneficial nor efficient. It's using Ubuntu 10.04 64-bit. Only active file systems are EXT4 and EXT3.
