Quest Sudo

Current:1.7.6p1q2 (2011-08-09)
For QAS:3.0 or later

Sudo is a tool that allows commands to be run as root or other users, with command logging and fine-grained access controls.

Quest Sudo adds two features to the standard Sudo application: Active Directory group matching for access controls, and newgrp-style group changing.

Active Directory group matching

Quest Sudo can use Quest Authentication Services to make access control decisions based on Active Directory group memberships – even for groups that are not Unix-enabled.

newgrp-style group changing

Quest Sudo adds the ability for users to change their primary group to any group permitted by the system administrator. This provides a more secure mechanism than newgrp by avoiding the need for shared passwords.


The howto documents both general Sudo usage in an enterprise environment, as well as how to take advantage of the Quest-specific enhancements.
