Sudoers on Oracle Enterprise Linux

— Sticky note on how to allow OEL admins (dba’s?) to execute any command with sudo

$ su -
# visudo

At the end of file add the following:

## Allow users in group admin to run all commands
%admin ALL=(ALL) ALL

Add new group (admin) or use dba group if you want dba’s to have full access of the system:

# groupadd admin
# usermod -a -G admin alesk

Verify group membership for user:

# id alesk

Test sudo privilege, for example gain root shell:

$ sudo -s
