Ubuntu Networking :: Mounting / Automounting / Setup Troubleshooting

Jun 18, 2011

I need help to figure out mounting. I have 3 computers running Natty. 1 a desktop 64bit dual boot with Win7 (64) Home Prem; a dell inspiron mini (32bit) dual boot with Win7 Home Prem, and an old 486 Intel based PC running ONLY Ubuntu. My Samba shares are on an external HD currently residing on the 64 bit. I installed Mount Manager...still trying to figure out how it works exactly. I'd like to auto-mount the shares "routinely accessed" (shared network drive, network personal for each machine) allowing as needed access. Then the other personal network drives I would like to mount only when needed. Leaving local home drives password/share protected ... using the network personal folders as a place to add files or such that need to go to a local drive.

{basically I have 3 computers which each have a local home folder, and a network home folder; then I have a network shared share where open shares will be stored (email, calendar, most documents, theetc) each computer has a primary ubuntu user (user id 1000). I have 3 windows ids on 2 computers. each of these ids has been paired with an ubuntu user in smbusers; after this weekend I will only have 1 windows share and 1 user hopefully! so the other two ubuntu users will have non-existent windows IDs}Right now I can (from a non-server machine) access the shared network drive, but cannot access any others. (Makes sense...that share is totally open). On the remote drive I have samba the the installed but no samba directory and it hasn't been configured (obviously).On the standalone (where the HD is attached) I can access any of them by mounting them where they are listed under Places, but through the network menu I can access the shared drive, and the personal drive with just one password entry (my login or sudo password). The others whenever I enter my login/sudo password I get an unable to mount error.

I currently have 3 Ubuntu users & 3 windows users. I've assigned each Ubuntu user an window user name hoping that would make the authorizations easier. I'm currently using a generic Samba password and a generic Ubuntu login password but they are different. So one password for each, each user has the same passwords. I do allow guests using the guest group (not nobody, but I could change that easily enough)If I weren't so stubborn I'd just ditch the passwords, make all shares open to everybody, but eventually I hope to be able to do remote access (via mobile) and would rather just do it all from the beginning than mess with it later.I've been hesitant to mess with programming in the mount/unmount process because I'm not sure I understand it that well (which is why I installed Mount Manager). Problem is I don't understand it well enough to figure out how to use Mount Manager. I did see where automount will not work if you have to authenticate the share before mounting. One of the reasons I only want to automount the 2 shares for each machine. That particular process sounded like what i want for those 2 connections on each. But first I need to figure out mounting period I guess.I may be really confused, or trying to do something that I with my limited knowledge and needs really don't want or need to do....wouldn't be surprising! I'm known to make things more complicated than needed. If a simpler approach seems more logical feel free to share!

Ubuntu Networking :: Fstab Setup For Cifs Mounting?

Aug 12, 2010

Hopefully this'll be an easy one (but I wasn't able to find any other posts with the exact same problem).I'm connecting to a large hard drive at work. I can mount perfectly fine. The following is the relevant line in my fstab file:

//XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX/data /mnt/labdata cifs users,rw,exec,suid,dev,username=XXX,password=XXX,_ netdev,fmask=777,dmask=777 0 0

The problem is that when I try to cd to the correct directory, I get a permission denied error. I don't own the mount point, and there aren't general read/write permissions set. But if I change to superuser, I can access it no problem. I can read, write, make directories, etc. So the problem is with my computer--not the remote one.

Now, if I add the option uid=MYID, I can read and write just fine. The system makes me the owner of the directory on mounting. But that's not what I want--I'm trying to allow multiple users access to this file system. I want there to either be a neutral owner (e.g. root) with others having read/write access, or I want the owner of the mount point to be the user currently logged in.

Ubuntu Networking :: Server 10.04 Network Troubleshooting?

Sep 1, 2011

I've got a server that I've been trying to get Ubuntu Server 10.04.01 LTS installed and running on and I've gotten incredibly close to having it work, but the Network is still giving me issues. The installer went off without a hitch (once I fixed some optical drive issues) and it has actually detected the "Intel Corporation 82576 Gigabit Network Connection (rev 01)" Dual-port onboard NIC which shows up when I run lspci. I statically assigned an IP, Subnet, DNS Server and Gateway to eth0 and things looked good. ifconfig showed that it was "UP", and I could ping localhost, but if I tried to ping anything on the LAN it said "Destination Host Unreachable".

Here's the ifconfig and lspci (snippet)

======== ifconfig ========
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:25:90:2d:26:98

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Network Connection Troubleshooting

Jul 9, 2011

Just installed ubuntu 11.04 on an old pc. At first, I was unable use my wireless usb adapter (netgear wpn111), but was successful after installing ndiswrapper-common and ndiswrapper-utils-1.9 manually. cool! then I updated all packages successfully via synaptic package manager and rebooted.now I have lost network connectivity. the os still sees the wireless usb adapter, but I have no connectivity. the indicator applet shows an exclamation point.

How can I troubleshoot this? are there logs? can I fallback to a previous good state?I am new to ubuntu, but experienced in unix. note: my pc only has 1/2 GB memory if that matters. but, hey, it worked once.

Networking :: Mounting Permissions Error / Mounting A Windows Host?

May 28, 2009

I am having permissions errors every time I try to mount a windows host. I have a linux server and all the windows computers can see that computer and its files, but we wanted to start backing up the linux machine to one of our other computers. so I tried to mount one of the computers. here is the sequence of events:

$mount -t cifs //$ /mnt/Anita-comp
password: (I have no password so I left it blank)
Mount error (13): Permission Denied
I tried all sorts of passwords we use around the office and none of them worked.

I then decided to try mounting one of our other computers. this one looked like it worked fine. no error messages at all. (I left password blank) so I look in my filesystem and the mounted drive is not in the /mnt/Anita-comp file. What gives?

OpenSUSE Network :: 11.2 Xen Bridged Networking - Setup Multiple DomU Through The Default Bridge Setup

Feb 4, 2010

Im trying to setup multiple domU through the default bridge setup. I am able to access only one of them through the network at a time. If you ping one of the domU it works perfectly but you cannot ping any of the others until you stop pinging the one and even then it takes a bit before you can. Ive looked around for a while and seen similar problems but nothing ever seems quite the same. Im probably missing something really stupid. Or is this the way the bridge is supposed to behave? Do i need to use a routed virtual network?

Ubuntu :: Automounting Read Only

May 6, 2011

Question for you all. I am trying to get my system so that when I insert USB drives they don't auto mount, and when I click on them in the filemanger they only mount read only. I am halfway there, as when I have used "gconftool-2 --set /apps/nautilus/preferences/media_automount --type bool false" to prevent the automounting. So thats working great.However it looks like for the mounting of drives in read only mode it used to be (around 2008 or so) that this command would work "gconftool-2 --type list --list-type=string --set /system/storage/default_options/vfat/mount_options "[ro]"" However, it appears that at some point that was removed and no longer works.

Any idea on how I can get this to work? I just want to be able to click on the non-mounted USB device and when nautilus mounts it have it get mounted "ro" not "rw". Ideas?

Ubuntu Servers :: Apache SSL Configuration Troubleshooting?

Jul 19, 2010

I am trying to configure Apache on my server to work with ssl, but everytime I visit my site, I get the following message in my browser: SSL connection error. Unable to make a secure connection to the server. This may be a problem with the server, or it may be requiring a client authentication certificate that you don't have.

Error 107 (net::ERR_SSL_PROTOCOL_ERROR): SSL protocol error. Just some background on the situation: I am using Ubuntu 10.04 desktop edition. I installed apache by installing zend server (it installed apache automatically). I then installed openssl. Non-https pages work fine on the site. I tried getting trial certificates from multiple certificate sites but nothing is working (same error). I was previously hosting my site on another server on which ssl worked just fine. I also tried using the key and crt file from that server, but I got the same error. The domain name and IP are still the same though. My SSLCertificateFile and SSLCertificateKeyFile are pointing to the correct directory and files.

Server :: Centos 5.5 Box Troubleshooting ?

May 13, 2011

The server is booting up properly and the system is running. When browsing web sites on the sever and they seem to run fine. But when you make requests to it, it seems to take a long time to process stuff. Such as large mysql request. Even to the point it freezes. It seems that if you make a request of some sort it just over loads. I have checked the logs and the most I can get from it that one of my wiki sites that seem to be getting nailed with spam bots trying to getting which is one of the databaes that where repaired could be slowing it down A LOT. Now I did find a couple databases that where marked as crashed and they have been repaired. I am not really sure what is causes the errors since the HD space is fine, ram is fine, internet connection is fine...So I am not familiar with diagnoses linux as much as I am with a windows pc. I am not real shell friendly. I am not good with the basic troubleshooting commands to try and identify the source of the problem to correct it. Could anyone point me the way...

Thanks in advance and I apologize for being a ra-tard on these. I should know this stuff more than I do running a server like this. It was created in 2006 and has been problem free since. Another thing, mass emailing isnt working either. It may be mysqld related. Sorry for the fragments and such. It also seems the SMTP isn't working properly as well suddenly.

Another error I been seeing:

PHP Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 33554432 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 16 bytesPHP Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 33554432 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 16 bytes some times I see this as a 32 or 64 bytes as well.

FTP Connection: It is also slow when making ftp connects. It is extremly slow but they finally do complete. It can be just a simple connection to display content. Slow.

Ubuntu :: Common Terminal Commands Used For Troubleshooting In The Forums?

Aug 8, 2010

I need to know what commands we have people run in the terminal in order to help them troubleshoot their issue. The reason being, is I was reading a thread where someone was stating about how they had to do all this and all that from a terminal and what not and that there should be a GUI Tool.

Well I'm going to make a GUI tool that allows them to obtain all the necessary information (and fixes are possible too) to help with their issue that they're currently having. For example: I know we run lsmod for sound issues, but what other commands do you have them run to check sound, video, network, etc. It will be made in wxPython so that it can be easily sent to others. If it becomes quite useful, then maybe we could get it in the repos.

Debian :: Troubleshooting New Wireless Network?

Aug 16, 2010

I have had no problems connecting to any of my wireless networks in the past. Right now I am at a friend's house and can't get internet access with my laptop. I have entered the appropriate fields in /etc/network/interfaces (as I usually do)

auto wlan0
iface wlan0 inet static

I checked this info with the router's web interface and everything seems fit. The network does not have a password. I have tried adding "wpa-ssid belkin5g" and "wireless-ssid belkin54g", and neither one works (can't ping the router after bringing wlan0 down then back up). I have also tried connecting with DHCP instead of setting a static address.

Ubuntu :: Autostart And Automounting Of A Software RAID 6?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: CD / DVD Not Automounting

Nov 15, 2010

I saw an earlier thread on this but I'm still stymied.Running 11.3 x86-64. If I insert a cd/dvd into the drive, the drive is not mounted.I can mount the drive manually and the drive then works - just no automount. Tried with CD, DVD, both data and music formats - no go.A sandbox installation on the box works as expected so it's not hardware.I tried deleting the /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-cd.rules file, rebooted -no change. USB devices automount just fine and a Virtualbox WinXP session with pass-through to the device works just fine.

I can't find any differences between the setup on the 2 installations so it's time to holler for HELP!! I'm about out of hair to tear out.
