NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     addprivuser - give	a user all system administration privileges

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     /usr/sysadm/bin/addprivuser [ -auth auth-scheme ] username

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     addprivuser adds an entry to the privilegedUsers(4) database.  This gives
     username the ability to run all of	the privileged commands	in
     /var/sysadm/privbin as if he or she were root.

     In	order to run addprivuser, 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	addprivuser is not itself a privilege.	root cannot
     give other	users the ability to add or remove privileges.

     addprivuser will print and	log a warning if an NIS	user account is	given
     all privileges 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.
