I had added user umarzuki to wheel group
# usermod -G wheel umarzuki
*Yes, I can use/setup sudo but I do this just for learning purpose
My /etc/pam.d/su as below
auth sufficient pam_rootok.so
# Uncomment the following line to implicitly trust users in the "wheel"
#auth sufficient pam_wheel.so trust use_uid
# Uncomment the following line to require a user to be in the "wheel" group.
auth required pam_wheel.so use_uid
auth include system-auth
account sufficient pam_succeed_if.so uid = 0 use_uid quiet
account include system-auth
password include system-auth
session include system-auth
session optional pam_xauth.so
when i su to user umarzuki and view its id output
uid=500(umarzuki) gid=500(umarzuki) groups=10(wheel),500(umarzuki)
and i tried run
$ yum update
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror
You need to be root to perform this command.
but i managed to change the interface's IP with this command
$ /sbin/ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.1 netmask 255.255.255.0 up
Is there a step that i missed?
