Ubuntu :: Samba User's Home Folder Is Not Visible?
Feb 16, 2010
I'm having some trouble with the user's home folders in Samba, ubuntu clients.I have a Samba server (Ubuntu Server 9.10)nd a bunch of windows clients and ubuntu clients too.On windows clients, each usercan see his home folder without problems, and the other shared folders too of course.The problem appears in ubuntu (i'm using gnome desktop with nautilus and the plugin for I enter Places->Network->Windowsetwork->DOMAIN->SERVER I only see the public shared folders, but no the samba user's home folder.I tryied connecting to samba through Places->Connect to Server and entering the username (for previous auth just in case) but nothing happens...
If, in nautilus I write smb://server/username, once it asked me for my user and password (but I told the popup to keep the password forever so now it doesnt ask me anymore :S), but it keeps not showing the folder under SERVER, the only way to access it is through smb://server/username directly. Even username@server does not work.Mi auth type in the Samba server is "user", and the auth config at my ubuntu client is also userJust in case.. when I type smbclient -L //SERVER -U username, it shows me the home folder ok.
I wanted to create an user but don't allow it to see the other user's home folder so I made chmod 0750 /home/folder and it worked fine so I went ahead and decided to completely forbid access to the root folder and I had the "great" idea to make chmod 0750 /, and now I'm having problems with wine and other applications, in example I used to have a folder in this address 22.214.171.124/mmgr but now it's giving me errors and if I try to run some applications I got error "There was an error creating the child process for this terminal"
id like to lock a user into his websites folder not his home folder. and i dont want him to be able to veiw anything outside that folder, only be able to play with whats inside that folder. is this possible?
Wondering if its possible to have a User's home folder that resides in a different partition (could be ntfs or ext). I don't mean mounting /home on a different partition. The home directory will still be available for adding more users but I'd like to have a specific User's folder away from /home
I messed up, and was forced to reinstall the system. my user data ws stored on another partition /home/Andre I installed as a new user "test" How do I make a new user "Andre" such that it uses /home/Andre ?
Limit every user to his own home folder only.I have a web server running 10.04 LTS and as a newbie in the world of server administration, I'm in a bind.Right now, I have three users. Root, which obviously has access to everything, and two other users that each own a website.For these two users, their website is located in their respective home folder in an extra folder they each have Read, Write & Execute permissions on. This is the only folder they can write to. They cannot delete it, or change anything outside the folder.
So far so good, except that by default, they can also read any file in the system, meaning they can navigate to my other websites' folders and read, for instance, the database passwords from WordPress config files.This is obviously problematic.The users access their files and folders through SSH with FileZilla.
How can I prevent these users from reading sensitive data, i.e. how can I restrict their access to only their home folder?The users must continue to login through SSH with FileZilla (i.e. no FTP solutions)Apache must still be able to access the user's folders (i.e. cannot chmod to 750)Folder containing the command line tools (/bin/bash I think) will probably have to be symlinked in the user's home folder?
Just did a new netbook install of Lucid. Went through the setup, putting in my usual username etc. But I thought as it's a portable, I'd better select the encrypted home folder option. All went OK.
I have a home network with a NAS and I needed to change the UID to 1004 to match the rest of the network.
That's when it all when wrong. If I do that, I end up with no permissions on the user folder. A bit of a paradox, you can't change UID if logged in, but unless you're logged in, can't access the files.
My attempts to get around it by changing UID's back chowning, changing back etc. have screwed things up completely.
I have managed to open the encrypted folder and chown, but after a reboot it's all back to the original UIDs, but now I can't get in at all.
i have the one help. i will creata one samba server.access this samba file windows system. also domain user access this samba folder. but problem is how can set permissions AD User( Windows 2008 Server).
I want to create a user with a encrypted home folder. I tried "sudo adduser --encrypt-home username" but I get following error "adduser: Could not find program named `ecryptfs-setup-private' in $PATH". I installed the cryptsetup package but without result.
This is the command I tried using:Code:mount -t cifs //NAS1/reports /home/user/public_html/reports -o rw,umask=0338,uid=587,gid=584,username=admin,password=passwordIt looks like the user can't access the files on the NAS drive. Is there any way to do this?
I'm setting up a network between 2 pc's where the one should act like "file server" and a normal pc to surf on internet.called ORLA-DESKTOP and the other pc is called OLGA-DESKTOP a pc connecting to the server and automounting the shared folder to the desktop Both pc's run ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx The shared folder is located on the server in /home/orla/svenson
ORLA-DESKTOP have 2 users "olga" and "orla" in a group called "svenson" OLGA-DESKTOP have 1 registered user "olga" also in group called "svenson"
users on ORLA-DESKTOP can read/write/append and so on and fully manage everything in the shared folder.But on OLGA-DESKTOP the user can make a file on the pc and then drag'n'drop the file the the shared folder, and can also delete files in the shared folder. but cannot create a file directly into the folder like on ORLA-DESKTOP I have 3 configuration files made. 2 for automounting, Located on OLGA-DESKTOP 1 for samba server configurations located on the server ORLA-DESKTOP
The first one is /etc/fstab
# /etc/fstab: static file system information. # # Use 'blkid -o value -s UUID' to print the universally unique identifier # for a device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name # devices that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).
To sum it all up the real problem is that OLGA-DESKTOP can't append to files in the shared folder. but users on the server have no troubles doing it..
Continuing with my assigned task of migrating the company's PCs to GNU/Linux (openSUSE as server for GNU/Linux clients) I managed to set up a DC with roaming profiles for the few remaining Windows users, user validation and login for the openSUSE boxes and a few network shares with different rights. I know there are no roaming profiles for GNU/Linux and I can live with that but I would like to specify wich users/groups would have their home directories saved locally (notebook users) and which will save them on the Samba server.
By default home directories are saved locally but somehow Samba creates a minimal home directory for each user under /home in the Samba server. How can I tell the client box to use that directory? and how can I set up the few notebook users to save it on their disks? Maybe using the options under Yast > Security... > Users and groups management > Users (LDAP Users filter) > and then select the user and use the "Manage Samba account parameters" plug-in for specifying the different paths cant achieve this.
I Have Configure Samba server in Centos, I need give permission like for some user(5User) can able to read and write the particular folder, and again i need give some another user(6user) can only read permission for same folder.
I'm trying to setup a Ubuntu workstation in a corporate environment, right now just as a proof of concept but hopefully soon I will do the real thing. The problem is trying to establish a Linux equivalent of a roaming profile. The user logs into the Ubuntu Machine using their Windows Active Directory Credentials. (A big victory) Then I would like the client to mount their /home folder off of a Windows 2008 Small Business Server. So far I can make Ubuntu mount everyone's /home folders but I would like to narrow it down to only mount the specific user who has logged in and with proper permissions.
Mount the proper /home folder from the server with that users permissions so they are the owner, have full access etc. Only Mount the current users folder. Or any logged on etc. (I just don't want to mount every folder for every user that exists in Active Directory) Do it automagically.
I login as "dirtandgas est" (dirtandgas is our test domain) and here is the line from the FSTAB that's used to mount the directory.
Code: //server/redirectedfolders /home/DIRTANDGAS cifs credentials=/root/.smbcredentials,iocharset=utf8,file_mode0777,dir_mode0777,rw,uid=892863608 0 0 Now I know if I changed that to the following, it would only mount the one directory, but I don't want to have to maintain the FSTAB on each computer for each user. (the point of using active directory)
I have a folder on a fat32 partition that is mounted in both os's on my system.(Ubuntu 10.4 and Win 7) When I go to windows 7 the partion is mounted but I can not find the Music Folder on the drive. When i have it booted in linux I have access to the Music folder. The last change on my system I made was I ran edna-0.6 for a day so I could stream the contents of the folder. I need to figure out how to get access to these in windows again.
//output from ls-l on my /media/osShare mount total 544 -rwxrwx--- 1 root plugdev 0 2010-09-08 21:32 admins.txt -rwxrwx--- 1 root plugdev 0 2010-09-08 21:32 banned-ip.txt -rwxrwx--- 1 root plugdev 0 2010-09-08 21:32 banned.txt
I made a media station with XBMC and this is working just fine. Now I have an internal hard disk NTFS formatted loaded with multimedia stuff. I would like to appear the disk as directory in my home. Example: /home/xbmc/multimedia where multimedia redirects to the root of the NTFS disk. Is this possible?
I'm trying to share some folders over the network, but the shared folders are not visible on another computer. This is through double clicking my computer from the Network list in Nautilus. However, I can access the share by typing the full address(<computer name>/<share name>) in "File > Connect to Server...".Since I can't type the address manually from my blu-ray drive, I need to get the shares to show on the network. What is wrong with my settings?
