    Limit AD users Fedora 26

    Hello everyone! I just got Fedora 26 installed and running. I've also successfully integrated the server with my Active Directory Domain and I can lookup users using "id domain\\user".

    My problem is that everyone in the domain can log into the server, they can't make any changes so that's good. However, what I want to do is to limit user accessibility to the server with a security group and the users in that security group I would want them to have admin privileges to the server to do whatever they need. How can I do this?

    Thanks!

    Re: Limit AD users Fedora 26

    Make users who should have administrative privileges members of wheel as explained in: https://docs.fedoraproject.org/f26/s...rivileges.html

    Then change /etc/pam.d/su directory so that only members of wheel can use "su" by uncommenting "# auth required pam_wheel.so use_uid" as noted in the /etc/pam.d/su directory.

    Thanks Donatom. That worked, the users still had to set up a su password but it's linked to AD so it's no big deal.
