RE: [K12OSN] non-Linux type admins and `sudo`

Hi Steve,

Part of the reason I use graphical tools is the 'enforced' slowdown they 
place on me.

I have made it a habit of reading all warning messages, after removing the 
admin user on a Novell 4.10 server many years ago. This was a production 
server, DOH! I had to manually rebuild my NDS structure one Saturday as a 
result. That server is still operational and sitting next to me at this 

Since then I have only toasted pre-production servers. Usually through 

BTW - if MS says they can't predict the behaviour of their server tools 
don't use them. Their batch user creation tool is alright for adding users, 
but very dodgy when removing users. Fortunately I had a backup from about 3 
hours earlier! :-)
