Re: multiple root accounts



From: "azeem ahmad" <azeem81 msn com>

hi list
i want more than 1 root accounts in FC4, for example
user: root
user: must
user:azeem
all the 3 accounts should have the same root previligies to do anything on the system
how it could be done

Run XP?

Seriously, this is something that in practice cannot be done. You can
setup multiple account names for entering the root or number 0 user ID.
All this does is weaken your security. It does not enhance anything.
The proper technique is enable "sudo" and have the users prefix "sudo "
to their commands which must be run as root. And even that is not all
that safe. "su -l -c <command string>" is somewhat better yet even
though it is more typing. It requires actual knowledge of the root
password rather than access to an account that is sudo enabled.
