ADDPRIV(1M)							   ADDPRIV(1M)

NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     addpriv - add a privilege to the system administration privilege database

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     /usr/sysadm/bin/addpriv [ -auth auth-scheme ] user	privilege [ privilege
     ... ]
     /usr/sysadm/bin/addpriv [ -auth auth-scheme ] -chkconfig

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     addpriv adds an entry to the privilege(4) database, so that henceforth
     user is granted privilege.	 This means that runpriv would run the command
     privilege in the directory	/usr/sysadm/privbin on user's behalf.

     Multiple privileges can be	passed to one addpriv command.	An entry is
     added for each privilege specified.

     To	see the	privileges associated with individual tasks, choose "View as
     Tasks" from the Privilege Manager menu. See privmgr(1M).

     The -chkconfig option is used to enable privileges	on the system.
     addpriv -chkconfig	runs the command chkconfig privileges on.

     In	order to run addpriv, you must either be running as root or you	must
     provide the -auth auth-scheme arguments and pass the authentication test.
     If	auth-scheme is unix, then must you type	the root password when
     prompted in order to pass.

     The ability to run	addpriv	is not itself a	privilege.  root cannot	give
     other users the ability to	add or remove privileges.

     addpriv will print	and log	a warning if a privilege is added for an NIS
     user account because it enables the administrator of the NIS server to
     use privileges on this workstation	by changing the	password of a user
     account that has privileges.
