Freeipa files acceess

Hello.

1. Created user in freeipa

By this user I trying to launch command on freeipa host:
/usr/sbin/dmidecode -t bios -t baseboard -t system -t processor -t memory > file.txt
answer: Permission denied.

How to give permissions in freeipa server to do it? Or how to give 777 mod to files from freeipa for some users?

Running dmidecode requires root privileges, which can be gained with sudo:

  1. So, how to give root priviileges, and ability run commands without “sudo” word from FreeIpa?

  2. If I give mode o+r to some files I can use this command without sudo.

You can make sudo to not require password for a specific user/group:

As an option, you can use sudo -i to not prefix each command with sudo.

I recommend to refrain from spoiling file system permissions as much as possible.
Otherwise may result in various security and integrity related issues.
