How Can A Regular User Access A Tape Device?
I have a workstation with Red Hat 4u8 with a scsi tape drive attached. I can only access the drive as root, but I need regular users to be able to access it. How/what can I configure it to allow regular users access to the device.
If I change permissions of /dev/st* to 666 for example, it works, but not after a reboot, at which point it reverts back to 660.
What does /etc/fstab say?
Nothing about tape...
I have the same problem. I have nothing in my /etc/fstab for my tape drive (LTO3).
Here are the permissions on the drive.
crw-rw---- 1 root disk 9, 128 May 26 15:15 /dev/nst0
crw-rw---- 1 root disk 9, 0 May 26 15:15 /dev/st0
Was wondering if I could just set and ACL on this drive if that would stay after a reboot or if there is some config file that will over write this on next boot up?
