Since my network is getting complicated at an exponential rate, I've been looking into graning some of the tedious tasks to other people.
These include adding users, running backups, and checking the log files.
This frees me up for more fun things like LDAP, Samba, and SELinux
Anyway, it looks like sudo will fit the bill in the short run. However, I can't seem to find a lot of information about the "host alias" section of the sudoers file and what it does.
It seems like you can grant host-based access to certain commands by person. I get that, what I don't get is how the host-based part of it works. It seems to me that the same /etc/sudoers file would have to be available on every client machine. I didn't recall seeing anything about a centralized "sudo" permission system for a network.
So if anyone has helpful advice on setting up sudo on a network, I'd appreciate any advice. I'm probably making it harder than it is.
BTW, I have already read the man pages and searched the forum
