What is the group 'users' (gid 100) for? It's tempting to use it as a general group for accounts that log in but would that cause a security risk? I've done a search for files owned by this group and there don't appear to be any. Googling the words gives very non-specific results!
i want secondary users can able to change the files permissions of primary group?user MAC is having www as a primary and httpd as secondary group. But he want to change the file permissions (chmod) httpd group files. Is it possible or not? I think its not possible. If it`s possible then let me know how?
I have a number of users, categorised into various groups. I would like one of those groups ("developers") to be in the wheel group as well. I don't want to just copy the people from the developers group into wheel, because then when that group changes I'll have to change it in two places. Is there a way to specify that anyone in developers is in wheel, and have that be dynamic?
how to map all domain users form group Domain Users to local group users (and maybe some more)? Im using Ubuntu 10.04 x32. Its connected to my domain using Samba and Winbind, I can login using my domain credentials, automatically map user folder form DFS server, but I think that domain users have too much priviledges in the system and want to restrict them as much as possible
When I have different people log into our ftp and browse to the same folder, some people see the files inside, some don't. all the user accounts are in the same group, which has permission to this folder. but the one user who can see the files is the owner. how can i fix it so everyone in that group who's the owner of the folder can see the files?
In other Linux distros I've used, new users are assigned to their own group (i.e. user 'joe', group 'joe') by default. To my surprise, when I create new users with my openSUSE 11.4, they are all assigned to the 'users' shared group by default.To test this, I created a new user called 'friends'. From my terminal, I can see how the new user files look like:
joe@linux:~> ls -l /home/friends/ total 40 drwxr-xr-x 2 friends users 4096 Sep 3 11:37 bin
I have server 9.04 and joined thru winbind to Windows Domain and subversion installed.Windows AD users can use their own credentials to join and everything is working fine.However the group svn which is used to access the repos in /etc/groups has some users.However I would like to add the domain users group to the svn group but the domain users contains Space. And /etc/groups does not happend to read the space any ideas on how to add "domain users" to the svn group in /etc/groups
I need to assign permissions for ftp users. For that I need to create groups with different permissions like upload, download, rename, delete, rename and delete. And the users added to the group need to have that group permissions by default.
I've been asked by my professor to add the list of users to a linux server (not sure of the OS type I think he said debian) but anyway. He gave me this script to add users.
Code: #!/bin/bash # Script to add a user to Linux system if [ $(id -u) -eq 0 ]; then read -p "Enter username : " username read -s -p "Enter password : " password egrep "^$username" /etc/passwd >/dev/null if [ $? -eq 0 ]; then echo "$username exists!" exit 1 else pass=$(perl -e 'print crypt($ARGV, "password")' $password) useradd -m -p $pass $username [ $? -eq 0 ] && echo "User has been added to system!" || echo "Failed to add a user!" fi else echo "Only root may add a user to the system" exit 2 fi
I need to see if I can get this script to read a file that list the usernames and their passwords using the pipe command (or some similar command) so I can just do it in one batch. I've done some searching but there are so many vairiations of the code that I've confused myself. Also, I'm not too familiar with linux, it's been a few years since I've used it but in the prior script, I need to add the users to an existing group named "forensics". Which line would I change/add in order to do this?
I want to implement quota per group users like this: Assume i have a Student group in my system, that student1 and student2 and student3 are three users in this group. i want to set quota 100GB per each user in this group, 100GB for student1, 100GB for student2 and .... The problem is when i set quota per group i cant say each user in that group have 100GB quota limit, also when i set quota per user, i should set one by one for each user.I want to know, is there anyway for set quota for all users in specific group?
I'm using Slackware with NFS share and I've been wondering why I had problems with access to some folders and I finally figured out that NFS limits group membership only to 16. Is there a simple way to circumvent this in Slackware?
This is the scenario: Active Directory Server = 192.168.0.1 Squid/Dansguardian Proxy Server w/NTLM Auth = 192.168.0.10 The Linux box has been integrated with AD and works fine. Users can authenticate automatically when login the AD or when they access the web through Basic authentication. That part is just fine.
But, when I add a new user, or change a users' primary group, I have to change the 'filtergroups' file in Dansguardian. I tried to make auto this process using the USERMAP and USERMAP2 scripts in [URL].. at the "Extras and Add Ons" section, but both scripts doesn't run properly in Ubuntu if they are not changed. I tried, following the instructions, but got a lot of syntax errors. So, I wrote a very simple script using 'net rpc' to retrieve all users according to the AD Security and Domain Groups. I created an output folder in dansguardian to dump the rpc outputs into files. And read the files to apply filtering groups.
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.
I'm using squeeze. hal allows any user (at least, ones logged into the console) the ability to automount any removable drive that is plugged in. I want to restrict the ability to automount to users who are in the group that owns the device node for the drive (some distributions use the "plugdev" group for this.) I know I can turn off automount individually in each desktop, but seeing as hal is the thing that runs as root and is actually doing the mounting, it seems to make the most sense to change the setting in hal.
I want to apply the same settings of Gnome among a group of users. I configured a "master"-user and exported his Gnome settings using
Code: gconftool-2 --dump > gnome_settings.xml For the other users, where the settings from the "master"-user shall apply, I did Code: gconftool-2 --load gnome_settings.xml
While most of the settings were set properly, I am missing the links for Firefox and OpenOffice in the panel which I had configured. How I can copy the Gnome settings from one user to another, including links to Firefox and OpenOffice in the main panel?
I want to add some users to multiple groups. syntax of the file to pass to ldapadd? or would I use lapmodify? Does one add/modify a user record to specify the groups that user is a member of? Or does one add/modify each group record to specify which users are members?
i added users to the group om PDC after it i shared folder on linux server and given permission for users from this group, the folder is showed correct. After it i removed users from group, but the folder is accessible. Where is mistake?

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
After installing VirtualBox, add yourself to the Vboxusers group in System -> Administration -> Users and Groups.Then re-boot your computer!Otherwise you will spend hours (like me) wondering why your USB devices are not available in your guest VM.I just did a complete install on a new, larger hard drive and had forgotten this simple fact. Doh!
i just want to prevent from now on from all users maybe even root from adding other users to groups like wheel for example. I also want to know how can I prevent from all users to create new groups or add users to new one.real
I am using RackMonkey to map out my lab. Unfortunately, due to RM limitations, every user who accesses the site has write access UNLESS they are logged in as a user named "guest". I currently have Apache allowing only the users (sysadmins) in an LDAP group access to RM, but I would like to allow read-only access for other users as well.I found mod_authn_anon, but I am having trouble combining the two authentication methods. I am using Apache 2.2.18 (compiled myself) on SLES 11.1.
This is the common part:
AuthType Basic AuthBasicProvider ldap anon Order allow,deny Allow from all
This part by itself works for the LDAP authentication:
Anonymous guest Anonymous_VerifyEmail Off Anonymous_MustGiveEmail Off Anonymous_LogEmail on Require valid-user
But if I have both of the previous blocks enabled at once, then guest access does not work. If I throw in a "Satisfy any", then I am not prompted for a username at all. How can I allow access to this LDAP group and to a user named "guest", but not allow all valid LDAP users to log in?
I have a text file that currently has around 150 000 usernames in it. I need to somehow group them into smaller groups of 1000 and then add that value into the DB. for example user xzy group 1 (hopefully the groups will be digits incrementing)
how to search for 1000 then assign them group 1 and then 1001-1999 to group 2 etc.
I've been tasked with fixing a Red Hat system that dies with a kernel panic during the boot stage:
EXT3-fserror (dev sda1): ext3_check_descriptors: Inode bitmap for group 4 not in group (block 67239937)! EXT3-fs: group descriptors corrupted! mount: error mounting /dev/root on /sysroot as ext3: Invalid argument
I can boot into a Rescue CD, but I'm a bit out of my element because I don't use EXT3 myself, and I've never had to repair a corrupted file system before.
