Managing Privileges (Task Map)

The following task map points to procedures for viewing privileges, assigning privileges, and running a script that contains privileged commands.

For Instructions
Determine what privileges are in a process
Lists the effective, inheritable, permitted, and limit privilege sets for a process.
Determine what privileges are missing from a process
Lists the privileges that a failed process requires to succeed.
Add privileges to a command
Adds privileges to a command in a rights profile. Users or roles can be assigned the rights profile. The users can then run the command with the assigned privileges in a profile shell.
Assign privileges to a user
Expands a user's or role's inheritable set of privileges. Use this procedure with caution.
Restrict a user's privileges
Limits the user's basic set of privileges. Use this procedure with caution.
Run a privileged shell script
Adds privilege to a shell script and to the commands in the shell script. Then, runs the script in a profile shell.
