Ubuntu Servers :: Error - /etc/sudoers Owned By Gid 1001 Should Be 0

Feb 11, 2011

I've got the following error message on my Ubuntu 10.10 Server after messing up the root permissions.

Code:

/etc/sudoers owned by gid 1001 should be 0

I've found some threads on this forum but they do relate to Ubuntu Desktop while this is Ubuntu Server. Therefor I started a new thread. Hope you don't mind. I've tried the following command:

Code:

chown root:root /usr/bin/sudo

Code:

chmod 4755 /usr/bin/sudo

The first command works, the second returns error: No permission

Ubuntu :: Error: Sudo: /etc/sudoers Is Owned By Uid 1000, Should Be 0

Jan 4, 2010

I have a problem, I changed the own of all the etc folder, it was a mistake, but I can't change it again, now, I cant use "sudo" because root is not the own. When I try to use "sudo" this is the error: sudo: /etc/sudoers is owned by uid 1000, should be 0. so, the own is my user instead of the root. How can I change it again?

Ubuntu Servers :: Jailkit Msg: Directory Not Owned By User But Directory IS Owned By User

Apr 9, 2011

I'm trying to jail a sftp user. All I want is for my daughter-in-law to be able to download pictures of my grandson on his step-uncle's motorcycle. But I don't want her browsing around. She's not a techie, but she's smart enough to catch on how WinSCP is looking at my files. I've set up the jail using jk_init, adding ssh, sftp, bash, netutils, basicshell, jk_lsh.

The physical root of the jail is owned by root, as are all the binaries loaded by the jk_init. The user's home directory is owned recursively by the user and is writable only by the owner. The passwd and group files are in the jailed /etc and populated by the user's lines. Shell is bash, and bash is there too. The error message must be coming from some other problem that's not notifying, but what?

Ubuntu Servers :: How To Setup User To Be In Sudoers File

Jan 31, 2010

I just installed Gutsy server. It is the only disk I can get to boot on this old PC trying to salvage. I'm at the "SERVER LOGIN" prompt. I created one user during the install. I can login as that user, but that user has "...Is not in the SudoersFile." How do I setup this user to be in the sudoers file, without having any ability to make changes to the system?

Ubuntu Servers :: Unable To Add User Directly Into The Sudoers File

Jun 22, 2011

I'm running Ubuntu Server 11.04. It came time to add User to the sudoers file: so I decided to simple add User to the admin group: usermod -a -G admin user Then I used visudo to check if admin users had been set to receive sudo privileges. I uncommented the line admin ALL=(ALL) ALL. Nothing happened. I've even tried to add user directly into the sudoers file as user ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL, but that failed too.

Software :: Ubuntu 10.04 Installs First User As UID 1001?

Sep 17, 2010

I just did a new, complete install of Ubu 10.04, installed myself as the first and only user and it gave me a user ID of 1001. All of my old systems gave me 1000. Now, when I NFS mount my other systems, I see ownership by UID 1000 and I have permission problems.

I certainly was not given the ability to choose my own numeric user ID at install time, just full name, short name (login id, brianp) and password twice.

Is there a good reason to skip the old standard UID of 1000 for the primary user on new installs? I would rather have good old 1000. If I just login as root, hack the /etc/passwd file to give user 'brianp' a 1000 user id and then chown -R brianp /home/brianp/*, what will I destroy?

As a limp-around, they seem to have left the users group ID at 100 so I have just made me a member of users group and changed permissions to full for the members of the users group.

Ubuntu :: Documents Owned By Root?

Apr 10, 2010

I reinstalled 9.10 yesterday and put the home folder on its own partition. Now it has my home folder as owned by me but all the files in it including Documents are owned by root. I did tell it to change ownership on enclosed files with no luck. So I can't paste my backup files into the Documents folder. I can do GKsudo nautilus but it times out every 15 minutes and I have to restart copying the 67GB of files constantly.

Ubuntu :: How To Edit File Owned By Root

May 31, 2010

I am trying to edit limits.conf, changed file permissions:
sudo chmod limits.conf -rwxrwxrwx

But got this message:
"Could not save the file /etc/security/limits.conf. You are trying to save the file on a read-only disk. Please check´╗┐ that you typed the location correctly and try again."

I followed these instructions:
"copy - paste this code into terminal
gedit $HOME/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts/Open as root
copy-paste this text into that file and push 'save'
for uri in $NAUTILUS_SCRIPT_SELECTED_URIS; do
gnome-sudo "gnome-open $uri" &
done

now copy-paste this code into terminal
chmod +x $HOME/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts/Open as root

Now you can right click on the file you want to edit, select 'scripts' and say 'open as root' to let you modify it". [URL] the right click worked but the file didn't open.

Ubuntu :: Delete A Folder Owned By Root?

Jul 4, 2011

I copied a folder from /media/memory_stick into a folder /opt/openerp/server/bin/addons.
Trying to open the copied folder I discovered that it is impossible because it is owned by root.I should like to delete the copied folder.To avoid this ownership I copied the folder in /home/cristian/Downloads and I will copy it with:sudo cp -R folder_name /opt/openerp/server/bin/addonsMaybe in this way the folder will be not more owned by root.I tried already but because in the destination folder already exist one owned by root nothing is happening.

Ubuntu :: OS Views All USB Drives As Owned By 'root'

Oct 25, 2010

OS views all USB drives as owned by 'root'. My internal 40 Gig drive files appear properly owned by 'glene77is'.My primary backup is a 320 Gig with all files now owned by 'root'.Using the filemanager "Nautilus", all USB external devices must be accessed as 'usb0', 'usb1','usb2', etc.The device names such as 'Alpha', 'Beta','Cappa' are not usably recognized in the menu options.Nautilus shows their names and the usb# as menu options for browing a device directory. Nautilus will open only the usb# menu option. Then sees all files as owned by 'root'.

Ubuntu :: Setting Up Shares For Non-user Owned Folders?

Mar 11, 2010

I've setup a Moodle server on 9.10 server, and have been able to share user folders back to the windoze machines on the home net. What I'd like to do is share the Moodle main folder (and descendents) likewise. The problem is that it's owned by root. For ther user folders, as long as the owning user was logged in they were able to mark the folder as shared and everything worked very smoothly. When I try to mark the moodle folder as shared, no suprise I get a permission error. Is there a way of doing a "sudo su" from the GUI desktop to allow this to happen? Or do I have to set up the share from a command line (after having done a sudo su)? Can anyone give me the magic commands needed to do such?

Ubuntu :: Mount FAT32 Partition Without Being The Files Owned By Root?

I want to mount my FAT32 partition automatically on startup. It gets mounted but the problem is that all the files in the FAT32 partition are shown as owned by root. Because of that I can't paste files or write to this partition. This is my fstab file

Code:
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
# / was on /dev/sda5 during installation

Ubuntu Installation :: Files Owned By User 1000 - No Access

May 25, 2010

Running 9.10 now, I'd like to do a clean install of 10.04 on my dual-boot (with XP) Compaq notebook. As a test, I burned an ISO image onto a 1-GB stick and booted to 10.04 from it. It works just fine, except that the directories in the Documents folder on my hard drive are owned by "user 1000", and "he" grants me access to only about half of them.

Is this problem likely to persist if I actually install 10.04 rather than just running it from the stick? If so, what can I do about it? Second question: am I correct in understanding that if I still need to access my Ubuntu partition from XP, I'd better stick with ext3 for this install rather than going to ext4?

Ubuntu :: When Mounting CIFS Share, App Files Are Owned By Root?

Jul 26, 2011

I'm trying to mount some CIFS shares (NetApp) to my Ubuntu 11.04 desktop (64-bit).I am mounting it as a domain user with admin rights and full control over the share.ter mounting it as root, all the files are owned by root and I can't modify them from my non-root user.Here is how I am mounting the share:

mount -t cifs -o domain=example,username=example-user,password=mypassword //myfiler.example.com/myshare$/mydir /mnt/myshare/

This share is a qtree under a volume with security type set to NTFS. (Although I have also tried security type = Mixed) We don't configure user-level access to shares on the filer, we create directories and lay down permissions on those from the Windows side. (Although I have tried explicitly adding my domain user to the access list for the share)
