dop on 4.0F

Hi Everyone,

I want to grant a user some restricted rights like being able to kill some other users processes , or taking backup , doing database shutdown/startup without knowing the root password.
This I think can be done with division of priviledges DOP which i found on 5.1B but is there anything like this on tru64 4.0F ? Please guide me.

Ok... Upgrade to V5.1, be happy!
It's been out for years!
It'll solve that other problem also.

Sorry, couldn't resist.

Re: dop on 4.0F

dop is part since 4.0x. The only difference is the non existing documentation for dop within the man-page and some syntax changes within the doprc file.

Add the following to /etc/doprc:

{path { /usr/bin/crontab -e USER } }
{groups { GROUP } }
{runid { root } }

The command is invoked as follows:

/usr/sbin/dop PRIV_NAME

In your case you must add the ps, kill, database shutdown script and backup-commands to the configuration file.

Another way is by setting the +s bit and changing the owner to "root" on the commands, so user is able to execute the commands and the command starts with root permission.
