No. Typically you don't want your servers where they trust any other systems because that means they could compromise the DMZ server and tunnel using that trusted relationship. That means no domains, etc. Therefore, NetBIOS is not exactly useful since there are no trusts. Also, by the very nature of a system being in a DMZ the recommendation is: Uninstall ...

/usr/local The link is to the Filesystem Hierarchy Standard which reads, in part, "The /usr/local hierarchy is for use by the system administrator when installing software locally."

Though there may be a technical solution to this, it's really more of a policy/HR issue. Inform that user's manager of the situation as well as the HR department. If they turn a blind eye to the situation, then there's not a whole lot left for you to do. In this situation, they're implicitly condoning his behavior and even if you disabled his ability to turn ...

Using different LUNs for different shares really seems like overkill. I can definitely tell you that I've never seen that done. They're all going to have a random-access pattern, so the workloads are going to be very nearly the same. Putting them on separate LUNs may make reconfiguring the storage w/o taking downtime more difficult down the road. I don't ...

Replaced my original answer after doing some testing of my own using a OS X 10.5.6 Server and a 10.5.7 Client: What I found after a bit of experimentation is that OS X is a bit crazy when it comes to ACL inheritance for share points. ACLs that are inherited will always take precedence over ACLs that are set at the share point (or lower in the tree) but only ...

The CIFS/Samba implementation in FreeNAS is excellent, we have several FreeNAS boxes and VMs going in an active directory enviroment, using AD for permissions on the shares. It's also extremely easy to set up and configure. Once we've set up the FreeNAS box and enabled the CIFS/Samba service, we add the following to the 'Auxiliary Parameters' box in the ...

Is there a way to overcome 10 connections limit to XP Pro shared folder? Use a server for server tasks. That will solve your problem.

Windows Home/Professional are limited to 10 concurrently users. If you need more then you'll need a server edition of windows, or another alternative like a NAS, samba on Linux etc.

Looks like you can, you just have to restart the "Server" service after making the switch.

Who are you sharing them with? Have you considered whether something like Live Mesh (or there are other similar solutions with higher capacities) would work for you, for example? I think using Windows file sharing over the internet represents a large security risk and probably won't be a very satisfactory solution anyway, due to issues like speed and the ...

hfs http file server http://www.rejetto.com/hfs/ It wont let you stream anything, but it will let you login with a username/pass and download anything that you have made available to the app. Its totally free and does all of the setup for you. I have registered a domian name and pointed it at my home server. When I want a small file I just visit the site ...

To your first question, the answer is "yup!" Instead of "C:\Program Files\Path", for example, simply substitute "\\localhost\C$\Program Files\Path" Using localhost will make it universally local. Of course, if you're intending for that directory to be the same across multiple machines located around the world, you'll still need some method of updating those ...

This is not a duplicate post as Mark labeled it as. The valid, and different, question is setting execute to deny but still allowing traverse folder permission. In Server 08, the permission is labeled as "Traverse folder/Execute file". This is found in the properties > security > advanced >permissions section. To allow "traverse folder": edit the ...

You're possibly confusing WINS and DNS. \server\share uses a WINS entry which holds the NETBIOS name to IP mapping \server.company.local\share uses a DNS entry which holds the FQDN (Fully Qualified Domain Name) to IP mapping If you're running a local WINS server, you'll want to rectify the issue you have with the server's netbios name entry. You ...

I presume you map the drive to the entire path. (E.g "net use X: \....\Target") ? The UNC doesn't work because the users need read-access to each folder in the UNC path in order to traverse the path. Mapping to the end-point doesn't require this. (The access-rights on the parent folders are not evaluated in this case. Only the folder(s) that the user ...

I fixed the issue but forgot to come back here and update what I did. In smb.conf I set the following parameters: server signing = auto client signing = auto That fixed the issue!

This is great example of how PowerShell can be far superior to some of the native batch scripting tools. You can use the New-PSDrive cmdlet to map a drive on Server B. The drive will only persist for this particular PowerShell session so if you execute a new script and/or PowerShell session the drive mapping will no longer be cached. You could also just ...

In the following code, MemberOf may return either a collection or a string value (if the user is a member of only one group in addition to their primary group): For Each strGroup in objUser.MemberOf You can't "For Each" over objUser.MemberOf if objUser.MemberOf is a string. There is probably an error which you are not seeing due to the following line: ...

Use the sticky bit (o+t) on the parent directory and change the owners of the directories or files you want to make un-removable to a different user. If you don't want them deleting ANY files from the directory, including ones they make, then continue from above and add the SUID bit to the directory (u+s). This will cause all files to be created with the ...

Try disabling NetBIOS name resolution. Network adapter properties -> TCP/IP properties -> Advanced -> WINS tab -> Disable NetBIOS over TCP/IP Strip out any WINS config, too, and make sure you aren't getting a WINS server configured by DHCP.

Windows Server 2008 and newer versions implement rudimentary support for I/O priorities. The CPU priority and the I/O priority are loosely coupled. You can prioritize down a process' I/O by setting it to "Idle" priority - this will set I/O priority of a process to "very low", the rest will execute in "normal" priority. I cannot see what you mean by ...

You should look into using automount. You basically configure automount with the mount point and the share/location and automount takes care of mounting and unmounting the share automatically and on-demand. Because you probably don't want to keep your password in the automount maps, you can specify the user/pass combo in a file and reference it with the ...

A simple bash script would do the job. Check for a file that should exist on the share, or get the number of files in the top level directory, something to tell you the mount is working properly, otherwise remount. Then throw the whole thing in cron. Updated: Then I would look at autofs, it should be available for ubuntu and as the post below me ...

We use CNAMES in DNS as a method to create a layer between real server names and an easy to remember name. For example we name servers based on a combination of their role, site, and number, but we use CNAMES so users are able to remember them easily and they never have to remember another name when we migrate to new servers. Our file server is called ...

I ended up using RichCopy. Microsoft tool, works great, decent UI. Yes I could've used robocopy / FSMT but this works too. Cheers for any help anyways

You may be thinking of the Microsoft File Server Migration Kit (FSMT). Here's a link to the download from their site. FSMT has some pretty stringent OS requirements and is designed to move Windows file servers. Depending on the specifics of your NAS, this may or may not be the tool for you. Maintaining the permissions should be straightforward as long as you ...

I had the same problem, and I found that the problem is related with security grants in the folder. You can find the complete detailed solution with print screens on my blog, here: http://blog.danielcosta.pt/?p=297 Hope this helps ;)

I think it came down to a permissions issue on that particular folder I was working with. I got it working now...

Go to the firewall settings in the Windows Control Panel Click "Allow Program through Windows Firewall" Tick the box for "File and Printer Sharing" Edit: As you mention in your comment you may also need let through other services that provide authentication/authorization/discovery... for file sharing if you are not just using basic Windows file sharing.
