Ubuntu Servers :: Add Windows & Mac Users As Samba Users?

Nov 23, 2010

If I want to add Windows & Mac users as Samba users, must I first add them all as Ubuntu users? If so, since none of the other users will actually be working on the Ubuntu Server, how do I disable the other non-admin users on the Ubuntu Server login screen. I am using Webmin to administer some server settings, and command line for others.

Debian :: Import List From Excel File To Create Many Users

Sep 22, 2015

I'm working in a school and we have a Apple server, we have many problem with it. So, I would install a linux server instead.

Anyway, there is just one big problem (or I miss a simple tip to do it )

We have 1300 students. If I must create them one by one, that will take a lot of time. Actually with the apple server, we can go on a web interface & import an excel list with theses columns :

"Name", "Login", "Password", "Class", "Group", "HDD Space", "Print quota", "Internet access or not", etc ...

Due to this tool, I can upload an excel files with my 1300 students & a couple hours after, they have an account with a personal space & a shared space with their class.

My question is : This tool exist on Debian/Linux world ?

General :: Create System And Samba Users With A Script?

Jan 7, 2010

I need to add linux and samba users using a shell script, it falls over because you are prompted to set a password.

I had a similar problem when installing the samba package using a script because it asks for confirmation after the command, I got round it using --force-yes -y as below.

apt-get install samba smbfs swat --force-yes -y

I suspect and hope you can do something along those lines when creating a linux user and a samba user, something like

smbpasswd ´┐Ża username ?

Ubuntu :: Samba - Get The Correct Default Permissions When Users Create Directories Through Windows?

Apr 1, 2010

I've got a small issue that when a Windows user creates a new folder through Windows Explorer (from the menu or by right clicking) the new folder is only accessible to that particular user. Example: user SABKAR (member of the HR group) creates a new folder called MarcTestMenu in a shared Samba directory through Windows Explorer:

[Code]....

At this point user MORAMY cannot copy a file or open the directory MarcTestMenu. MORAMY gets a 'not accessible' error message in Windows. If I su to the Samba box and issue this command:

[Code]...

how I can get the correct default permissions when users create directories through Windows?

Ubuntu Servers :: Samba BDC Not Authenticating Users

Jul 18, 2010

I have two ubuntu 10.04 64-bit servers running samba (3.4.7) and openLDAP (2.4.21). The LDAP directory is successfully replicating between the two servers. These servers also serve as LDAP servers for sudo, pam, nss, and other services for a dozen servers without issues. The BDC samba is configured to use itself for LDAP. I connected to the BDC using the samba ldap credentials and verified I could a) see the Computer object b) read NTPassword and LMPassword. The workstations can authenticate to the domain successfully against the PDC. If a workstation boots and connects to the BDC, they login fails with:

Code:
[2010/07/18 11:46:23, 0] rpc_server/srv_netlog_nt.c:336(get_md4pw)
get_md4pw: Workstation MACHINENAME$: no account in domain
[2010/07/18 11:46:23, 0] rpc_server/srv_netlog_nt.c:584(_netr_ServerAuthenticate3)
_netr_ServerAuthenticate3: failed to get machine password for account MACHINENAME$: NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED

Successful authentication against the PDC shows:
Code:
[2010/07/18 11:59:20, 1] smbd/service.c:1063(make_connection_snum)
MACHINENAME (192.168.2.145) connect to service netlogon initially as user username (uid=30000, gid=512) (pid 1727)

Ubuntu Servers :: Samba Users Able To Browse Folders With No Permission

Feb 11, 2011

I've set up smbd 3.4.7 on 10.04x64 LTS server. I've set up a couple shares and I'm having problems blocking access to certain directories using native file permissions. There is one directory that has folders for each sales rep to store their current list of quoted clients, I only want sales people to be able to browse the directories owned by themselves. Everything seems to be set up correctly in terms of user groups and permissions on the filesystem.

Below is marina, a sales rep, and brian, a super user of sorts.
id marina:
Code:
uid=1011(marina) gid=1006(office) groups=1006(office),1005(sales)
id nick:
Code:
uid=1000(brian) gid=1006(office) groups=1006(office),118(admin),1001(full),1002(processing),1003(management),1004(it),1005(sales)

Below is the directory with all the sales reps folders.
ls -la:
Code:
total 60
drwxrwxr-x 15 root it 4096 2011-02-10 20:06 .
drwxr-x--- 9 root office 4096 2010-11-19 12:40 ..
drwxrwx--- 13 katya full 4096 2010-12-07 12:36 Katya
drwxrwx--- 18 lana full 4096 2011-02-08 17:09 Lana
drwxrwx--- 23 marina full 4096 2011-02-10 18:09 Marina
drwxrwx--- 4 mike full 4096 2011-02-01 12:42 Mike

With this setup marina only be able to browse her folder, but she can browse all folders and has full write access to all folders. This leads me to believe something is up with the smbd.conf file, which is below.

Code:
[global]
workgroup = COMTREAD
null passwords = no
server string = Root Server
dns proxy = no
log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
max log size = 1000
syslog = 0 .....

In this case the valid users directive would not work cause I am not making a share for each user. I had this on other shares like the db2 share. My windows box lagged heavily when I tried to access that share with an invalid user. How to deny users the ability to modify permissions I would also like to do that.

Ubuntu Servers :: The Users And Group Section Of EBox Doesn't Appear - Samba

Sep 20, 2010

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.

Ubuntu Servers :: Samba Share Using Domain User/group In Valid Users?

May 20, 2010

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

Ubuntu Servers :: Create Secure Shell Environment For Users?

Feb 25, 2010

I was planning on using my VPS to grant some of my friends shells. The problem though is that I don't want them doing crazy stuff on it, like using up all my RAM or disk space. I would like to limit them to a very small 25 mb disk space, and allow them only certain application in /usr/bin like python perl irssi screen etc. I do NOT want them to be able to cd out of their home directory. I really want this to be setup like the shell provider SHellium. I can setup the FTP and SSH stuff myself.

OpenSUSE Network :: Pull AD Passwords From AD And "auto-create" The Associated Samba Users

Feb 15, 2010

Don't worry, I know - that title probably makes this question seem way more complicated than it actually is. Here's the situation: I have a server running SLES10 with a samba share set up on it. I created a username in Samba and Linux for myself, can access the share, permissions are fine, yadda yadda. Now I want to give about 100 more people access to it.

I have active directory running which users log into and I'd like them to be able to use their active directory passwords to authenticate to the share, rather than have me create 100 individual Samba/Linux accounts. In the future the AD server will be changing over to server 2008 but I'll cross that bridge when I get there. It would be equally effective if I could pull AD passwords from AD and "auto-create" the associated Linux/Samba users. Any ideas or could someone point in the right direction?

Ubuntu Servers :: Samba - ADS- Automatically Create Home Directories

Mar 22, 2010

At work, using SambaKerberos and ActiveDirectoryWinbindHowto, I joined my machine to our ADS network. Again using ActiveDirectoryWinbindHowto, I modified both common-account and common-auth with these settings.

file: /etc/pam.d/common-account
account sufficient pam_winbind.so
account required pam_unix.so
file: /etc/pam.d/common-auth

[Code]....

According the the doc, when I first log in as a domain user, it should create the home directiroy /home/<whateverdomain>/<theusername>, but it doesn't.

Ubuntu Servers :: Create Samba File Share To Windows Domain Clients?

Apr 28, 2010

I feel ashamed for even asking this, since it seems like there's about 3 samba questions here every day. However after an hour of searching, I keep finding strange variants that aren't what I need.

My Goal: Create a single file share on an Ubuntu Server - share it via samba to Windows clients that are on a domain with active directory. It sure would be nice if AD authentication would work - so users don't have to type in a linux user/passsword each time they want to access the share.

In my adventures, I've found the following items (which may overlap)

1. Joining the server to a Windows Domain

2. Turning the server into a Windows Domain Controller

3. Authentication with LDAP (still not quite sure how/what this would do)

4. Stuff with Kerberos

5. Lots of people bickering about Samba 3/4 & how it's impossible to make Samba a PDC.

I'm not sure if I need to make the ubuntu server a domain controller or not...all I want to do is create a file share and share it on the domain...I don't need to make the ubuntu server a domain controller for that, right? Maybe just a member? Maybe nothing at all?

I guess if I want to authenticate stuff correctly (or forward authentication requests? Not sure), I probably need to join the ubuntu server to the domain...I think.

But let's say I do join it to the domain...then how to I create a file share that is authenticated via active directory rather than a local ubuntu server account? I see a dozen guides on joining the server to the domain, but nobody ever mentions sharing the folder over the domain.

The lines are also blurred between joining Ubuntu to the domain and making it a domain controller. What should I keep an eye out to avoid in these tutorials?

I get lost between the Kerberos/LDAP/Samba/WinBind etc...and I have a feeling I don't need all of these for something this simple.

Software :: Mapping Linux Users With Widows Users Using Samba

Jul 11, 2009

I work as an system administrator for AIX and Linux servers. We have an FTP server running in Linux which has shared folders to Windows domain using Samba. The new requirement is to map users created to Linux machine to Windows users in such a way that, when a user logins into Windows machine with an ID say "X123" in domain "TEST", his access control to the samba shares should reflect based on the same user ID created in Linux machine.(FYI. Both the Windows and LINUX machines are in same network and domain). Please let me know the step by step procedure to configure Linux machine (smb.conf entries or any new file to be created for user mapping) to identify Windows user Login and provide access restrictions accordingly.

Ubuntu :: 2 Separate Users Accessing Network Folder On 1 Computer

This of course means that when my wife logs in she won't see them since they're not mounted to her home folder. So what folder should I use and what tricks so that we both have it visible and accessible in Places from the top menu?

Ubuntu Security :: Users With Different Firewall - Works Best With Separate Installations?

Mar 5, 2011

Just to confirm - I have come to the conclusion that it is best to have separate Ubuntu installations if users of the same computer have different default firewall blocking needs. Me and my wife have totally different Internet surfing habits. I also tend to block most of the websites that she normally uses, some of which are dialed by default when opening Firefox.

We have used one desktop computer for a while now with two users in one Ubuntu installation. It is becoming too much of a hassle having to change the firewall settings each time it was changed by the other user with a previous log-on. We also have two other computers in the household for the children. I have created a Local Repository, and download updates only on my computer, saving on time and bandwidth (the only replication that takes place is downloading the index files from the update servers for each computer). Having another Ubuntu installation on the same computer will just add to the "auto update" list.

Another advantage is that my "more secure" Ubuntu partition (which may contain sensitive information from time to time) will not be mounted when my wife is on the Internet.

Ubuntu Networking :: Assign An IPv6 Address To Separate Users?

Apr 15, 2011

I have an Ubuntu 10.04 server/router with IPv6 internet connectivity (I have an internet routable /64 subnet). Since I have this abundance of IPv6 addresses I wanted to try and assign v6 addresses to specific users on the local system. I've been looking at ip6tables with packet mangling but I don't seem to be able to find out how to do this or if this is even possible.

Current configuration: eth0: Local network, has the /64 IPv6 public range active and the IPv4 LAN range. tun0: 6in4 tunnel with a ISP assigned public v6 address. eth1: Standard IPv4 internet connection.

All users on my system use the v6 address configured on tun0. I want to force them to use the /64 range which is configured on eth0. If I can force users to use a specific v6 address, I'll configure more then one v6 address on this interface based on the users userID on the system.

I have quickly created a php script in a separate virtual host to list and display all contents in /var/lib/php5 , and it seems incredibly easy to see what details the other accounts are storing in sessions.
