I am somewhat new to the unix sysadmin world and have a simple
question. Consider the following:
1) Two groups IS and NONIS exist as such:
How would I grant IS people permission to modify all files in NONIS
directories ie. John/Joe making changes in mary/jane's directories.
Keep in mind that only John and Joe should have that privilage.
I thought about using chmod 770 on NONIS directories, but then
that does not quite do the job.
2) We have some consultants that come in and help us out on
different projects. How would I grant them root access without giving
away root password? I've heard of a utility called gsu that allows you
to define nonroot people who can have root access. This way when
the consultant leaves, I can take him out of that list and I don't
have to change root password everytime.
Appreciate all the help,
