‘m a new Unix system user. How do I use sudo command without a password on a Linux or Unix-like systems? I log in as tom@my-cloud-server-ip and disabled root login for ssh. After login, I need to run some commands as root user. I am the only sysadmin using my server. How do I run or execute sudo command without a password for a user named Tom under Debian/Ubuntu/CentOS Linux cloud server?
‘m setting up a new FreeBSD server. I do not want to use a default root user who has full system access. How can I setup and grant sudo privileges to users on a FreeBSD VPS or server?
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 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?
‘m trying to run the following command:
ssh firstname.lastname@example.org sudo command1 /path/to/file

How do I fix this problem on Linux or Unix based systems?
