Using OPAM 184.108.40.206: Not Able to Search for the ROOT Account with Sudo Authorization on Linux Machines
Last updated on OCTOBER 09, 2017
Applies to:Oracle Privileged Account Manager - Version 220.127.116.11.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
Configured OPAM 18.104.22.168 for password vault of ROOT accounts. The user store configured for all these Unix machines is LDAP (OUD). In LDAP we have created a basic account ‘OPAMTMP’ with no permissions assigned. However on the AIX and Solaris servers we have provided permissions as below:
OPAMTMP ALL=(root) /usr/bin/passwd root
With above permissions, we were able to check-out the ROOT password successfully.
But when assigning similar & more privileges to Linux machines, with sudo authorization checked in Target we are not able to search for ROOT or any other account.
