Centos 6.5 Shared folder permissions help needed
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 28, 2014
For school I have an open assignment which states that I should create 10 users scattered over 5 departments with their own department-folder. Users of the same department should be able to access files of their colleagues (Read/Write/Execute/NOT DELETE).
The BOSS department however should be able to access every user's files(access to all departments)(Read/Write/Execute/NOT DELETE).
My teacher stated that there's tons of ways on how to do this but this is what I have so far:

Help with virtualbox shared folder permissions for ldap users/groups
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 9, 2013
Really need some help to get the permissions sorted for ldap users on the guest OS to access the shared folders.
Here's the scenario:
Host: Ubuntu Server 10.04 LTS 64 bit with Virtual box 4.2.6
Guest: Ubuntu Server 10.04 LTS 32bit with Zentyal 2.2 & Guest Additions installed
I have a directory on the host shared with the guest. I want to use the shared folder as a smb share for the guest users. Permissions on the host directory are 777. Permissions on the guest VB shared folder are 770, owned by user root and group vboxsf - I can't change this.
The users on the guest are authenticated via ldap and all belong to the ldap group __USERS__
My question is, how do I add the ldap group __USERS__ to the local group vboxsf to allow them to access the shared directory? Alternatively, is there an automagical way to add new ldap users to the vboxsf group?
Shared folder permissions

Hi folks. Having a bit of a problem with sharing. This could be my lack of understanding of UNIX file permissions. Let's see if that's the case....!
All partitions involved are ext4.
My friend Clive runs a small company with one employee, Peter. I've set up a Lucid server and two lucid workstations. Using NFS, I'm sharing server:/data/drives/shared to the local network, mounting it on /media/shared on the workstations.
I've created a group called "shared" on the server and workstations and it has the same group ID on all three boxes. Likewise the users and their respective groups have the same user/group ids across the board.
The /data/drives/shared folder on the server has permissions of -rwxrwx--- root shared, as does the mount point on the workstations.
The shared folder is being mounted successfully via /etc/fstab.
When Peter saves a file on /media/shared, it is created with peter as the owner (obviously) and peter as the group. Obviously Unix differs fr
Virtualbox shared folder permissions
location: linuxexchange.com - date: January 1, 1970
I'm using Windows and Virtualbox with RedHat, putting it simple: I've created a shared folder so I can use Eclipse on my Windows OS and do some testing in Linux.
However, I can't access the shared folder with my user, I've logged in with root and used chmod 777 and even moved my user to the folder's group.
Whatever I do the result is the same:
/media/sf_sharedFolder/: Permission denied
What can I do? How can I access the shared folder with my user?
File permissions of shared folder using virtualbox
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 4, 2010
I am running ubuntu using VirtualBox on a Macbook Pro. I wanted to share my documents folder on the Mac in the virtual machine. I had no issues creating/mounting the share folder on ubuntu. However the file permissions for the shared folder are owned by root.
drwx------ 1 root root 1088 2010-02-04 10:18 Mac_Share/
I used the following command to mount the folder:
sudo mount -t vboxsf Share_Documents ~/Mac_Share/
I checked that the folder is mounted I can see what is there using
sudo ls Mac_Share/
How do I make the folder accessible to the user? Is there another -option needed to do this in the mount command?
Or do I need to chown for the directory? If so how to do this?
Access a Mac OSX shared folder from Linux
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 17, 2013
I have a Mac with OS-X (Mountain Lion) with a couple of folder shares, that is connected to my home network. Now, I also have an Ubuntu 12.04 box connected to the same network and would like to have access to the shared folders in the Mac. Is this possible? If it is, please, explain. Is it also possible the other way around (have access to shared folders in Linux from a Mac)? Thanks.
Cannot change folder permissions, "Readonly file system"
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 6, 2013
OS Version: Maverick 10.10 x64.
Screenshot (includes hard-drive information and such) -
Whenever I try and change the permissions of a folder, it gives me this error. What can I do to fix this?
I tried Googling, and discovered that chmod wasn't working because it 'writes' data in some shape or form.
In addition, I thought I might be able to remount it, but I'm not sure how to do this safety, as I do not have physical access to the machine, and only have terminal access (I have a VNC server set-up, but it's a pain to use for me).
What can I do?
Thanks and best regards,
Virtualbox Shared Folder Fstab Automount on boot Ubuntu 10.04 and/or 12.04
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 20, 2012
My shared folders won't automount at startup. Please help.
Host: Windows 7
Virtualbox Guest 1: Ubuntu Server 12.04
Virtualbox Guest 2: Ubuntu Desktop 10.04
I'm trying to integrate the Documents folders on all my machines. (Or, at the very least, set up a shared folder to automount on startup.)
I used the Virtualbox interface to setup a shared folder, selecting the correct host path
and checking "Make Permenant."
On my UbuntuServer12.04 guest, I created a mountpoint directory,
. On the other guest, there is already a Documents folder which I will use as the mountpoint.
I entered this into /etc/fstab on both guest systems:
Documents /home/username/Documents vboxsf uid=username,gid=groupname 0 0
I even tested /etc/rc.local (made sure it was executable) by adding one of these three lines (tested one line, rebooted, replaced it with the next line
Virtualbox and shared folders permissions problem
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 13, 2012
This is my first foray into Linux, so please bear with me if this is a dumb question..
To try out Ubuntu 12.10 Desktop I installed VirtualBox v4.2.4 on my Win7 64-bit Home Premium PC, and installed Ubuntu 12.10 32-bit as a guest OS.
However, I can't get to share folders between host and guest.
In Win7, I've right-clicked the folder to share, selected Share with.../Specific people/Everyone/'Read/Write', and named the share "Main".
In VirtualBox Manager, I've now got the guest OS Shared Folders Settings to show the share under "Machine Folders", with properties:
Name: Main ;
Rebooted the guest OS, and as stated in the Ubuntu documentation, I now have a folder in File System/Media called sf_Main.
However, opening this folder, gives me the error message:
"The folder contents could not be displayed.
You do not have the permissions necessary to view the contents of "sf_Main".
To make Virtual Box shared folder accessible to user in Ubuntu 11.10
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 8, 2011
I use Virtual Box on my MacBook Pro under OS 10.7.2. I run Ubuntu in VM through Virtual Box. I was frustrated to find that my shared folder in the Linux OS directory [/media/sf_VM_Drop_Box] was not readily accessible. I had no problem setting it up to share in VB. The problem was always on the Linux side. I had to Command-Click the [/media] folder and open as administrator, and then do the same for the Virtual Box sharing folder inside [/media] every time I wanted to access it.
So I tried every way I could find to make the folder readily accessible. I tried to change permissions with [chmod] and ownership with [chown] without success. Finally I thought if I could add myself to the [vboxsf] group that owned the folder then that would open possibilities. Here is how I did it.
Open Terminal program, login with your username and password if needed. At the command prompt [ ~ $ ] enter the following...
~ $ cd /etc/group
This puts you in the right directory. Press return to enter command
