How to allow users in a group to run all commands in Fedora / CentOS using sudo
This tutorial will guide you on how to allow a group of users to run all the commands without sharing your system root password in Fedora / Redhat / CentOS based Distros.
This is similar to the sudo in Ubuntu. Here we will start by creating a group called “sysadmin”, then we will append a user “chia” to that group which will be able to run any command on the system. Lets start by creating a group and adding a user to it.
[root]# usermod -aG sysadmin chia
Now edit the /etc/sudoers. Its possible to edit the file in an editor, but its safer to use visudo instead.
Add the following line to the file
Now you can login as user “chia” and run any command by appending sudo.
You can also gain access to root shell by using password of user “chia”
[sudo] password for chia: <chia 's password>
