problem: devfs scsi tape permissions

Post by Michael Reinck » Fri, 18 Jan 2002 22:00:15



Hi,

i've some trouble with devfs and the permission on my SCSI-tape drive:

after a reboot the permissions on /dev/scsi/host0/bus0/target4/lun0 are as
follows
drwxr-xr-x    1 root     root            0 Jan  1  1970 lun0/

A request on the tape-drive as normal user gives a permission denied and
the permissions on /dev/scsi/host0/bus0/target4/lun0  set to
drw-------    1 root     root            0 Jan  1  1970 lun0/

all nodes in lun0 are having the right permissions:
ls -l /dev/scsi/host0/bus0/target4/lun0/

total 0
crw-rw----    1 root     tape       9,   0 Jan  1  1970 mt
crw-rw----    1 root     tape       9,  96 Jan  1  1970 mta
crw-rw----    1 root     tape       9, 224 Jan  1  1970 mtan
crw-rw----    1 root     tape       9,  32 Jan  1  1970 mtl
crw-rw----    1 root     tape       9, 160 Jan  1  1970 mtln
crw-rw----    1 root     tape       9,  64 Jan  1  1970 mtm
crw-rw----    1 root     tape       9, 192 Jan  1  1970 mtmn
crw-rw----    1 root     tape       9, 128 Jan  1  1970 mtn

So to get the whole thing work i need on /dev/scsi/host0/bus0/target4/lun0
the following permissions:
drwxrwx---    1 root     tape            0 Jan  1  1970 lun0

How could i reach this??  I tried using CFUNCTION

CREATE nst0 CFUNCTION GLOBAL chmod ${mntpnt}/scsi/host0/bus0/target4/lun0 770
CREATE nst0 CFUNCTION GLOBAL chown ${mntpnt}/scsi/host0/bus0/target4/lun0 0 26

but no work. Setiing the permissions by hand and activatinfg saving and restoring the state is also not working.

Please ignore the previous mail. It's my fault.

1. problem: devfs scsi tape permissions

That's fine.

How the hell did that happen? Devfs provides no way for changing the
permissions of a directory from kernel-space. So it looks like you
have a busted devfsd configuration.

Well, that's not the default that the kernel provides. The default is
rw access for everyone. Which even more strongly suggests that the
devfsd config you have is broken.

You shouldn't need to do anything in the first place. My guess is to
fix the broken Debian configuration files. Talk to Russel Coker: he's
the new Debian maintainer. Tell him I sent you :-)

                                        Richard....
