Giving someone root access in linux is easy. Why would someone need to be root I don’t know but this is how you do it using the usermod command.

To add root access

[[email protected] root]# id sys_admin<br /> uid=508(sys_admin) gid=508(sys_admin) groups=508(sys_admin)<br /> [[email protected] root]# usermod -G root sys_admin<br /> [[email protected] root]# id sys_admin<br /> uid=508(sys_admin) gid=508(sys_admin) groups=508(sys_admin),0(root)

To remove root access.

[[email protected] root]# usermod -G sys_admin sys_admin<br /> [[email protected] root]# id sys_admin<br /> uid=508(sys_admin) gid=508(sys_admin) groups=508(sys_admin)
