how/where umask is defined on a Ubuntu server system

0 votes

I am wondering how - or more exactly where - umask is defined on a stock Ubuntu server system.

I have reactivated the root account. Here's the respective default umask for root and normal users:

Nomal User:

$ umask
0002

Root User

$ umask
0022

On RHEL/CentOS, these values are defined in /etc/bashrc and then in the individual ~/.bashrc files. How does Ubuntu handle this?

umask value is set in "/etc/login.defs" but you can override it in bashrc.

I have some legacy binary code. Is there a way to run it on a current 64bit ubuntu system?

~$ file y

~$ ./y
-bash: ./y: No such file or directory

I'd like to install a master on a virtual machine and rsync this installation to ten clients (desktop installation for a library). Also, all changes after the initial installation to this master image should be replicated to them.

There are some modifications for the master installation necessary. It must not use UUIDs for example.

Is there a ready-to-use script for this scenario?

Thank you in advance.
