Problems with permissions/ownership og image folder

  • I had never this problem when I used the default location of the image folder (/images). When I moved it into the /home folder I get problems as the folders made inside dev folder is set to root:root

    My /etc/exports file is correct, I thing:
    /home/images *(ro,sync,no_wdelay,insecure_locks,no_root_squash,insecure,fsid=1,)
    /home/images/dev *(rw,sync,no_wdelay,no_root_squash,insecure,fsid=2,)

    Servers has been restarted.

    The folder inside the dev folder is never copied into /home/images as the ownership always seems to be root:root even if I manually set this to chown -R fog:fog /home/images and chmod -R 777 /home/images

    Any idea about this problem? I am running svn 2145 on CentOS 5.7

  • Hi Tom! I started with a clean installation so nothing is moved or copied from /images. I even set the permissions/ownership correct in /home/images but they are back to wrong settings each time I do an upload.

    During an update (svn) the /images are recreated again. I have not checked lately if the /etc/export file is kept unchanged (it was correct now with references to /home/images).

    Sammary: The ownership is changed to root:root each time I do an upload

    It’s possible to have /images in /home.

    Did you copy the folders from /images or move them?

  • Hi Tom! I am quite stuck here as there are problems with permissions. Whenever I make an upload (I deleted the old image/files from gui). Then I recreate the image and start an upload. Inside the dev folder I now find these files:
    -rw-r–r-- 1 root root 1 aug 8 08:45 d1.fixed_size_partitions
    -rw-r–r-- 1 root root 15 aug 8 08:45 d1.original.fstypes
    -rw-r–r-- 1 root root 259 aug 8 08:45 d1.original.partitions
    -rw-r–r-- 1 root root 0 aug 8 08:45 d1.original.swapuuids
    -rw-r–r-- 1 root root 3571496504 aug 8 08:57 sys.img.000

    As you can see the files are owned by root and the permissions will not make it possible to move the folder/files outside the dev folder after upload completes. Right? I have to move them manually and change permissions. Could FOG set correct permissions or is it impossible to have the /images folder inside my home folder?

    The /home/images folder is typically setup for root:root but has chmod -R 777 privileges, which means anybody can use and write to the folder.

    Did you make a link to /home/images?

    I don’t fully understand the issue then. If you’re reinstalling the system, then chances are it’s updating the privileges during install time to ensure things are fully functional.
