MSDOS FS Q: Non-root write?

MSDOS FS Q: Non-root write?

Post by Steven M. Pa » Sun, 02 Jan 1994 02:23:32



How can I set up the MS-DOS File System to allow writing from others than
root?  I looked through all the files I have, but it's not in them, and I
don't have FTP to get new ones.

My /etc/fstab is like so:

/dev/hdb1       /       ext2            defaults
/dev/hdb2       /home   ext2            defaults
/dev/hda1       /dosc   msdos           defaults
/dev/mcd0       /cdrom  iso9660         defaults
none            /proc   proc            defaults

What does "defaults" get changed to?

Thanks.

... (stuff deleted)

The options field in /etc/fstab for mounting an msdos file system lets
you specify the user ID, group ID, and permissions mask to be applied
to all files on the mounted file system.  For example,

/dev/hda4       /c      msdos   noexec,uid=123,gid=456,umask=022

would assign ownership of all files to the user whose ID in the passwd
file is 123, with group ID 456, and a permission mask of 022.  The
noexec options disallows execution of any files from the file system.

1. run a non-root user's program from a non-root user

Hi Folks,

Here is the problem.

I have user A and user B (non-root users)

I need for user A to initiate a job as user B. How can this be done?

As you know, I can do this as root. I can start a process from root as
another user in the system (cron jobs come to my mind!) Is there a way
to do this for non-root users? I believe I need to be able to do
something like  as user A
"su - B" without being prompted for password.

Appreciate suggestions in advance.

BTW: I am using AIX 4.3.10
