Imagine the following scenario:

A NAS box, providing a samba share, with several versions of a fíle collection in dated directories (name i.e. "2017.05.24").

On the NAS should be some links into subdirectories of the latest version, so the copy script should create symbolic links on the share to the latest version of that file collection.

When I try
ln -s <samba_share/link_name> <samba_share/dated_dir_subdir/>

Open in new window

I get an error that this is not possible. Any hint ?

Hi guys,

Although I find it hard to believe that what I'm looking for even exists, I'll still try my luck.

Is there any Linux Based IDE with native support for bash scripting?
(I don't only mean things like syntax highlighting but also auto completion and etc.) and preferably with git support.

Is there anyway to get a compiled bytecode from a bash script? I know about SHC but it doesn't really help becasue reversing it is way to easy - there's already a ready shell script to reverse the SHC compilation called UNSHC.

Hi Experts

I have a customer that has Linux Centos 6.5 samba file server installed. (old server)
They also have another server that has Centos 7 samba file server installed. (new server)
My scope on the project is to migrate from old server to new server.
I'm not very good in Linux but I understand that it requires to create Linux users as well as samba user for file sharing permission.

What is the proper way to migrate shared folder to new server including [file and folder permissions] and [list of users(linux and samba)"]?
Example we can use Robocopy in Windows server to migrate permission, how about in Linux ? Could you please provide step by step ?


Thanks

Dear All,

We have created a chrooted jail environment for our SFTP access. Using chrooted environment, we restrict users either to their home directory or to a specific directory. Now my question is if there's anyway we can an additional username to access the same home directory for other username? Or any other words, is there anyway I can assign different usernames to the same home-directory and have it chrooted jail?

Below is our current config if that helps:

group add sftponly


vi /etc/ssh/sshd_config

#Subsystem sftp /usr/libexec/openssh/sftp-server
Subsystem sftp internal-sftp
Match Group sftponly
ChrootDirectory %h
ForceCommand internal-sftp
X11Forwarding no
AllowTcpForwarding no

systemctl restart sshd.service

useradd USERNAME –g sftponly –s /bin/false
passwd  USERNAME


mkdir /home/USERNAME/SFTPWRITE
chown root /home/USERNAME
chmod 755 /home/USERNAME
chown USERNAME /home/USERNAME/SFTPWRITE
chmod 755 /home/USERNAME/SFTPWRITE

setsebool –P ssh_chroot_rw_homedirs on

Have a telecommunication server that switched over to its backup. After the switchover we noticed a couple of files that can't be deleted.

[root@LABSYS2 log]# ls -ltr
ls: cannot access 1000025.DBG: Input/output error
ls: cannot access 10002CB.AUD: Input/output error
total 769808
-????????? ? ?          ?            ?            ? 10002CB.AUD
-????????? ? ?          ?            ?            ? 1000025.DBG

I tried to find the inode of the file and use it to delete but "ls -il" did not return inodes  (it only did for other files in dir)

ls -li
find ./ -inum <inode number> -exec rm -i {} \;

Please offer any suggestions.

Thanks!

My computer is running Windows 10 Pro, 64-bit.  My C language files or my code (program) are stored in the hard disk.  

The old and new version of WindRiver Diab Compiler are stored in Linux Server?

My bash profile used to contain path to old compiler.  To compile, I ran Winscp to access Linux Server.  Then, I dragged my C language project to Linux Server.  I opened the command window from Winscp and invoked make program to build my executables.  This all worked fine.

To build with new compiler, I changed path in my bash profile but my code (program) is still getting build with old compiler.  The generated .map file shows path to old compiler.

My bash profile is stored in my windows desktop.  Does Winscp read bash profile when it is invoked?  How does it know to read bash profile from desktop?  Why is my program not getting built with new compiler?
