How to Make Multiple Users of a Windows Computer Use the Same Virtual Machine?


If you have already created a WVM, log in as either administrator, or as a user with full admin permissions.
Copy the Windows Virtual Machine folder and contents to the "Public" folder (exists under the "users" by default on Win7 up).
Open up the permissions on the folder and contents to include which ever users you want to share it with.
If you have NOT yet set up a WVM, create it in the PUBLIC folder rather than the default location. The target location is one of the things you can browse to during the set up.
Then, as a user with full admin control, be sure to open up the permissions on the WVM files, to include everyone you want to use it.

How to Mount storage devices automatically on linux


Hi..
This will be nice that all your local Hard drives are mounted automatically during the boot. This can be achieved by modifying "fstab" (File System TABle) file. This file is located on /etc/ which would need superuser permissions(root user password) to modify.

How we can alter fstab and set system to mount partitions by itself is explained below..

  1. First Open a terminal and type blkid and press <Enter>
    this will show your local Hard disks with their UUIDs( Universal Unique IDentification). This may look like this

    nightflare.png
    here 1st column with /dev entries are the links of partitions(in the format /device/<Partition No.>
    2nd column : LABEL describes the Name or Label of partitions. Not all partitions necessarily needs a Label.
    3rd column starting with UUID is the entry shows the UUIDs of the Partition
    4th column shows the File system used in the partitions

  2. So Now we know some important informations about our partitions like their File system type and UUIDs. In linux to use a filesystem, we need to mount it in somewhere in the root directory. This is because of the Hierarchy nature of Linux .

    Usual location of mounted file systems are on /mount/ or /mnt/. I take /mount/ as my default Mount location. Create a new folder with a name(Without any space between words, ex: New_Partition) simillar to Partiton Label or No

    To create folders in /mount/ , we need root permissions.
    Open a terminal and type su and press <Enter>. It will ask for root password. type in root password and press enter.

    Then type mkdir -v /media/<Dir Name>
    ex.: If you want to create New_Drive in /media/ then type mkdir -v /media/New_Drive
    You can also create multiple folders in one step
    ex. You want to create Drive1, Drive2 , Drive3 then you need to type as
    mkdir -v /media/Drive1 /media/Drive2 /media/Drive3

    You may get as this
    nightflare_0.png

    Now we created mount points needed to mount the filesystems

  3. Now we need to modify fstab file .
    Default location of fstab is /etc/fstab

    nightflare_1.png

    On terminal ( where we typed commands to create folders in /media)
    Before we start editing fstab file, lets make a backup copy of it

    Type on terminal cp -v /etc/fstab /etc/fstab.backup and press <Enter>. You should see as below.

    nightflare_5.png

    type sudo gedit & and press <Enter>

    This will open text editor. Click on Open and point it to /etc/fstab

    nightflare.jpg

    It will Open fstab file. This may look like this

    nightflare_3.png

    Any entry starting with #, will not taken into account. So you can use # for commenting

    Basic structure of fstab file is


    <File System Address> <Mount Point> <Filesystem Type> <Options> <Dump> <Pass>


    File System Address --> Its is the Identifier for the file system. You can use either Links (ex.: /dev/sda2) or Labels (ex.: LABEL="DRIVE1") or UUIDs (ex.: UUID="74c9c3d9-a374-406d-ba41-e030c7d35f5d")


    Mount Point --> This is folder on which the file system mounts. (Refer Step 2) (ex.: /media/Drive2)


    File System Type --> specify the file system (ex ext3, ntfs, fat)


    Options --> Contains more complicated options
    For normal user, its good to set Defaults as Options


    Dump --> set whether to Backup or not. (ex. 0, 1)


    Pass --> set whether to check filesystem before mounting


    example of a edited fstab file is


    nightflare_4.png


    After finishing with fstab save it. You may get errors if you don't have permissions to alter fstab. In that case, Open a terminal and type su and press <Enter> and provide Password for root account. and <Enter>
    Then type gedit &.

  4. After saving the file , restart the system, if everything go just good as expected the computer boots up with local partitions mounted on specified locations

Target folder not accessible.


Perform the steps mentioned in the below article.
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/810881

Also, try this:

CAUSE

This issue may occur if the folder that you cannot open was created on an NTFS file system volume by using a previous installation of Windows, and then installing Windows XP. This issue may occur although you enter the correct user name and password. This issue occurs because the security ID for the user has changed. Although you use the same user name and password, your security ID no longer matches the security ID of the owner of the folder that you cannot open.

For example, although you use the same user name and password, you may no longer have permission to open the folder after you complete the following steps:
1. Before you install Windows XP Professional, you change the actual location, or target location, of the My Documents folder to another volume.

2. You format the primary partition.

3. You install Windows XP Professional.


RESOLUTION

To resolve this issue, you must turn off Simple File Sharing, and then take ownership of the folder:
1. Turn off Simple File Sharing:
a. Click Start, and then click My Computer.
b. On the Tools menu, click Folder Options, and then click the View tab.
c. Under Advanced Settings, click to clear the Use simple file sharing (Recommended) check box, and then click OK.

2. Right-click the folder that you want to take ownership of, and then click Properties.

3. Click the Security tab, and then click OK on the Security message, if one appears.

4. Click Advanced, and then click the Owner tab.

In the Name list, click your user name, Administrator if you are logged in as Administrator, or click the Administrators group.

If you want to take ownership of the contents of that folder, click to select the Replace owner on subcontainers and objects check box.

6. Click OK.

You may receive the following error message, where Folder is the name of the folder that you want to take ownership of:
You do not have permission to read the contents of directory Folder. Do you want to replace the directory permissions with permissions granting you Full Control? All permissions will be replaced if you press Yes.

7. Click Yes.

Click OK, and then reapply the permissions and security settings that you want for the folder and the folder contents.


Also, try to create a folder in external Hard Drive and then try to back up the data.

The files are set to read only on the CD. If you would like to open them, please copy / paste the files to your PC and open them from there.

To rectify this in the future, please set the file permissions on the files before you burn them, and remoce the Read Only attribute.

Mac Error


Hi Joe
Sound like a permissions problem.

Make sure you have admin rights on your log in or log in as admin. Check the permissions on the application folder, that you have read and write (single click on the folder press option and 'i' key to get folder info.

With Macromedia it installs folders in quite a few locations so you need to make sure you have 'read/write' permission on the whole mac.

If you still have a problem. Open the apple disk utility (in the utility folder in applications) and check permissions there. You can run fix permissions from the to.
