Last updated on DECEMBER 28, 2016

Applies to:

Linux OS - Version Oracle Linux 6.2 and later
Linux x86-64

Goal

How can we have extra root users, because from security point of view we should keep the root user save from daily accessing and use another "AS ROOT" user otherwise if root missed or blocked for any reason we may can't access the server.

Need to create an almost root equivalent users but not root identical user. How to achieve this?
