General :: What Are The Percentage Signs For In The Sudoers File

Aug 18, 2010

In my sudoers file, there are lines that begin with #, lines that begin with % and lines that begin with neither. The # is definitely being used to comment out lines, but what does the % do? Is it a comment marker too?

General :: Sudoers File Gone?

Oct 3, 2010

I logged in as root and was trying to add a user to sudoers, but then when I tried to save it said that the file was write protected and couldn't be saved. However, when I returned to look at the contents of the sudoers file, they were all done. The file is now empty.

1- How can I restore the contents of the default sudoers file. (I have FC12)
2- How can I add a user (no password) to the sudoers list without this happening again?

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.

General :: Grasp The Proper Way To Modify The Sudoers File

Jun 3, 2010

Relatively new to Linux, but I'm trying to grasp the proper way to modify the sudoers file. As an example, what would I have to modify in /etc/sudoers to allow a user (say 'user1' for the example) to be able to add/remove software through yum? I'm aware of the fact that I need to use visudo and how to use the vi editor. I've Googled this topic and while I've found a number of pages on the topic, I never see many examples.

since a recent upgrade to Mandriva 2010.1 I am not able to 'sudo' as administrator or when I use the 'root' password.

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...

uid=1000(kosta) gid=1000(kosta) groups=0(root),1000(kosta)
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?

General :: Script To Tar Up Files When A Partition Hits A Certain Use Percentage

Apr 19, 2011

I am in need to create a script that queries how large a partition is and when it hits a certain percentage (say 90%) it will execute another script that tars up certain files (or they could just be part of the same script). I would create a cronjob that runs this script once a day.

I have the script that tars up the files I need, sets permissions, etc. (btw, the files in question are audit logs). I just need the part that runs something like a df -h and takes the use percentage of the /var partition in that query and if that percentage is greater than/ equal to 90%, it kicks off the tar script.

Here is a sniplet of the df -h with just the /var partition shown:


So, when the cronjob sees that the Use% is >= 90%, it would kick off the tar script...if not above 90%, it closes.

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?
