Fedora :: Add User To Sudoers File?

Apr 18, 2011

How do I add myself to the Sudoers File? When I go to use the "Sudo" command, it tells me I am not in the Sudoers File, so I have to do "su -" to bypass it for the time being. How do I add myself?

Ubuntu :: User Not In The Sudoers File?

Jul 15, 2011

I have a bit of a problem... I thought (for certain reasons) I would just add myself to root group and therefore gain some more rights for my account. I could sudo before... But once I gained the root group as a secondary group it says I am not in the sudoers file anymore...

Code:
id
uid=1000(kosta) gid=1000(kosta) groups=0(root),1000(kosta)
Code:
sudo ls
[sudo] password for kosta:

kosta is not in the sudoers file. This incident will be reported. It is really weird and messed up. I can view sudoers file but not edit it... I can cat passwd but I can not view syslog. Is there any way to fix this without having to reboot to recovery mode? And why the heck is this happening after all?

Ubuntu Security :: User Is Not In The Sudoers File

Mar 15, 2011

Suddenly I am not in the sudoers file. I am not sure how to recover from this. I have no grub screen at bootup, so I can't boot into single user. I think I am going to have to boot a live version of ubuntu to start with. Is that right? What's next after that? Also, how could this happen, I haven't touched the sudoers file or added users or anything like that (well not that I am aware of) I am a little concerned that this may be the result of someone breaking in? Would this be a likely symptom?

General :: User Not In The Sudoers File - This Incident Will Be Reported

Mar 12, 2010

I need to install a package. For that I need root access. However the system says that I am not in sudoers file. When trying to edit one, it complains alike! How I am supposed to add myself to the sudoers file if I don't have the right to edit one? I have installed this system and only administrator. What can I do?

Edit: I have tried visudo already. It requires me to be in sudoers in the first place.

amarzaya@linux-debian-gnu:/$ sudo /usr/sbin/visudo

We trust you have received the usual lecture from the local System Administrator. It usually boils down to these three things:

#1) Respect the privacy of others.
#2) Think before you type.
#3) With great power comes great responsibility.

[sudo] password for amarzaya:
amarzaya is not in the sudoers file. This incident will be reported.

Ubuntu Servers :: How To Setup User To Be In Sudoers File

Jan 31, 2010

I just installed Gutsy server. It is the only disk I can get to boot on this old PC trying to salvage. I'm at the "SERVER LOGIN" prompt. I created one user during the install. I can login as that user, but that user has "...Is not in the SudoersFile." How do I setup this user to be in the sudoers file, without having any ability to make changes to the system?

Ubuntu Servers :: Unable To Add User Directly Into The Sudoers File

Jun 22, 2011

I'm running Ubuntu Server 11.04. It came time to add User to the sudoers file: so I decided to simple add User to the admin group: usermod -a -G admin user Then I used visudo to check if admin users had been set to receive sudo privileges. I uncommented the line admin ALL=(ALL) ALL. Nothing happened. I've even tried to add user directly into the sudoers file as user ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL, but that failed too.

Ubuntu :: Adding A Line To Sudoers File So That Every User Can Run A Particular Program As Root?

is it possible to do so? I mean, I want every user to be able to run '/bin/x' for example, as root without entering a password. I know the security risks, but I'm trying this in a risk-free environment which security does not matter very much.

Red Hat / Fedora :: Add User To Sudoers

Jul 16, 2010

I recently installed Fedora 13 "Goddard" using the graphical installer (although I prefer the 'text/ reduced graphics' option.When I start the system (after installation completes), it runs in graphical mode and presents me with a graphical login prompt. However, due to security reasons (I'm told), it won't let me log on as the root/ admin user (which is fair enough).If I log on as another user (eg : alpha, charlie or delta, for this example), I can't edit the sudoes file to add one of these users (alpha) to the file. This is because these users aren't in the file, as far as I know.

At no stage during installation was I offered an option of either setting the runlevel or adding a non-root user to the sudoers file.I have found a way to change the runlevel setting, so that is not really an issue.What I would like is either of the following :

1. A modification to Fedora's graphical installer that allows for an explicit option to set the runlevel (graphical/ command-line) and another option to add the first created non-admin user (alpha in this example) to the sudoers file.

2. Information on how to add a user to the sudoers file without adding all others (eg : alpha, but not charlie and delta, in this example).

I have read the relevant man and info pages for the su, sudo, sudoers and visudo commands, but I only got confused. (I don't know BNF/ EBNF and I would like a solution that doesn't involve having to learn these BNF dialects, although I will if I have to.)Also, I have seen solutions that show how to add all users, but not individual users, to the sudoers file. What I want is to add an individual user (if this isn't clear already).Please feel free to send me an e-mail about this post : nigel.nq.ngw[at]gmail[dot]com with the subject line "Linux Forums - Fedora 13 Add User to Sudoers"

Debian :: User Not In Sudoers

Feb 21, 2011

I have installed debian 6 recently, and during installation I selected not to allow root login (and thereby enable my standard user to use sudo).If I check sudoers (by using visudo) my standard user is not listed anywhere, but he can still use the sudo command without any problems.Where else could this permission be stored?

Fedora Security :: Limiting Sudo - Giving Full Privileges To The Wheel Group In The Sudoers File

Feb 15, 2011

I have previously set up sudo via adding my name to the wheel group and then giving full privileges to the wheel group in the sudoers file. Now I choose to learn to limit that. Had noticed the most frequent use I have of sudo is to run yum update. This got me thinking, could I remove the wheel group privileges and add the following line in sudoers to limit the privilege to simply running yum, and furthermore, make it so I could run yum without a password:

## Allow root to run any commands anywhere
rootALL=(ALL) ALL
Troy ALL= NOPASSWD: /usr/bin/yum

I think that would in fact work (if I understood one of the pages here, it will work). However, upon further thinking I realized that in such a case then anyone sitting at my computer could then use yum, without a password, to install or remove any file on my system � probably not a good idea. As a result I have to ask, can I tighten the privilege even further such that the only privilege so given was to run �yum update� and nothing else? (for example if they ran �yum install� it would fail). If you can do it, how?

Last, I was going to limit the privilege, time wise and try wise, by adding the following to the sudoers file:

# Defaults specification
Defaults:Troy timestamp_timeout=0, passwd_tries=3

Will that really work to limit the elevated privilege so I don't have elevated privileges lingering about, or is there a better way to do so?

Ubuntu :: Use Sudoers To Allow Any User To Chown A Certain Set Of Files?

Feb 16, 2011

I have a fairly complicated request The short version is, I want to set up a system so that any user can change the ownership of a certain set of files at any time without root access. I think it's possible to set up sudoers to do that, but so far I have failed miserably.I have tried setting up a wrapper script around chown, then putting that script into sudoers, but it didn't work. Here's the script and sudoers (paths changed to genericize them):

Code:
#!/bin/bash
#this script moves a copy of the code

Ubuntu :: Member Of Admin But Not In Sudoers File?

Jun 8, 2011

I'm trying to add my single user 'moreaue' to the sudoers. this user seems to be have admin privilege but is not in the sudoers:

Code:
moreaue@bloom:~$ sudo ls
[sudo] password for moreaue:
moreaue is not in the sudoers file. This incident will be reported.
moreaue@bloom:~$ su
Password:
root@bloom:/home/moreaue# adduser moreaue admin
The user `moreaue' is already a member of `admin'.
root@bloom:/home/moreaue# exit
exit
moreaue@bloom:~$ sudo ls
[sudo] password for moreaue:
moreaue is not in the sudoers file. This incident will be reported.
moreaue@bloom:~$

As you can see I can connect as root, run the adduser command which says the user is already admin... but then the user is still not a sudoer. Of course I can edit the sudoers file manually, but I wonder what is going wrong?
