Hi James,

 

Yes I tried to do this on another machine unfortunately this didn't work
for me, good you raised this topic

 

On the other machine I edited the visudo

 

User_Alias PROJECT = emma, paddy, sb

PROJECT   ALL = !/usr/su, !/bin/su, !/usr/bin/passwd

 

And then did this 

 

paddy, emma, %PROJECT, %sys ALL = NETWORKING, SOFTWARE, SERVICES,
STORAGE, DELEGATING, PROCESSES, LOCATE, DRIVERS

 

But no success neither paddy nor emma could install software using yum
could they run any network commands :-(

 

I am sure I am doing something wrong try to google but no luck :-(

Hi Harry,

Try to implement sudoers and add the group "wheel" inside from it (you
can modify it from /etc/sudoers or using visudo command). In that way,
all your users can use yum command.

Cheers,

Dear All 

 

I am trying to allow a local user on the centos machine to be able to
run yum 

 

What I have done is added him to the wheel group so that he can run
software, basically it's his own machine if he breaks it it's his
problem

 

But even after adding him to wheel, sys and adm group he is unable to
install using yum

 

I am sure I must be missing something or I must be doing something
wrong, 

 

Many Thanks

 

Harry
