Re: restrict a normail unix user from going anywhere

Thanks! I actually heard about the sudo method.  But could a normal user do anything harmful or
see any sensitive information in our system. it is for a third party operator to just restart the
service.  Can we restrict a user to just issue a command or not allow it to issue some command ?
