I like the way Ubuntu Linux works – all people in admin groups should able to run all commands after running it via sudo “command-name”. How do I setup sudo under CentOS or Red Hat Enterprise Linux to allow all members of the ‘admin’ group to run all commands?
I‘m not told to use the root user to perform activities that do not require it. I’ve configured sudo for myself and for other web developers so that they can restart MySQL or Apache web server. How do I send email when sudo run by one of my user? How do I keep track of user login done via sudo command?
I use sudo to provide permissions and command execution rights to other users under UNIX and Linux operating systems. However, I noticed something strange about sudo. When executing sudo, it will prompt for the user’s password the first time, but sudo no longer requires a password anymore when re-executing it. Why? Is this is a security risk?
