Linux Users, Groups, Files, and Directories

...Since this is my first foray into Linux I had no idea what to write about in relation to being a Unix Administration. After looking at the topics I chose “configuration of users, group, and file/directory permissions for several reasons. The first is that I did spend some time many years ago setting up an active directory infrastructure so I am hoping to relate how to set up users in Linux to mirror that structure; if that is at all possible. The second reason is that one of the first thing an server administrator would have to do after booting and loading a file system would be to define permissions’ to allow people to get access to either the application or data on the server. I suspect that a lot of thought would have to be put into doing this, if it is not done correctly it will be ad hoc or have to be redone multiple times to get it right. Having to redo it might require all of the users to lose access while it is being redone. I think explaining how to set up the file/directory permissions relating to the access capabilities of the user/groups will also be interesting to learn. Finally the other reason that I chose this topic is that it has the most words so I in my thinking if it took that long to describe the topic hopefully there will be enough material to fill up a research paper. My goal in doing the research is to gain an understanding on these topics and pass that information on to anyone that is as clueless as I currently am on Linux. I will accomplish...

Managing User Account Access

...Manage User Account Access The account policy for first World Bank would be a very simple and easy policy. Basically all personnel will only have one account at a time, each person will only have their account on the system that they have business being on. You can be assigned to multiple groups within the system if need be. Before anyone can be added to the system, they will have to read and sign the User Account Policy; this will make sure that no one can say that they “didn’t know”. Now for creating users and groups there will be no special permissions in order to “create” them but when it comes to the specific users and groups there will be. The Web Administrators will have their own permissions and groups, the Linux administrators will have their own users and group, and the Security Analyst will have their own groups. I think that there should be a group set up so that all departments can talk with each only to help each other and inform each other of certain things. The Security group I feel should have access to the maintenance group so that they can get regular updates and patches, and to the Web Admin group so they can apply the updates/patches. Web and Linux groups will not have access to the Security so that way no one can go in and change anything with security. The Web admin and Linux admin will have permissions for each other so they can make changes that are needed but they will only have certain permissions for that, for example, Linux will not be able to...

Unit 6 Assignment 1 - Ad User Group Design

...Unit 6 Assignment 1: AD User/Group Design Scenario To: Junior Admin I received your e-mail asking how to provide access to resources throughout your AD environment and you are not sure which strategies are best for the different situations you are encountering. I would recommend that since you have a domain for each department, such as Marketing, accessing one printer is very easy. To start, you will need to create a group that allows access to the one printer within each department. Once you have created each group you will then assign it to a domain local group, global group, and then to a universal group. Finally adding it to the Marketing domain group. With your HR, you will need to take all the users within the forest and add them to a global group, and then the universal group. Next, take the universal group and add it to the domain local group within their domain. These users will then have access to whatever is in that universal group, and therefore you must make sure that you assign the printer for them to print vacation requests to the HR department. With R&D, you will need to take a slightly different approach. To allow access to only the server, you have to first create a domain local group that has some administrative rights. Then you will need to add them to a customized admins group that you have control of. You can then assign the permissions and rights as you create and assign them. Remember to limit access to their local machines only. Through......

Analysing the Manager's Role in Initiating and / or Maintaining Service Quality, in a Chose Health Care Setting for a Chosen Service User Group.

...service user group. Service line management is one of the most common ways in which modern health care services are defined and delivered, but "there remains a lack of consensus regarding the best way in which service line management should be designed and delivered" (Berry & Seltman, 2008, p.93). In general, service line management is taken to mean "the way in which different disciplines are organised in order to provide an integrated system of service (or output) delivery" (Schermerhorn, 2006, p.19). For the manager, this means focusing on three core areas: procedures and interventions; disease management; and care for specific sections of the popular such as children, the elderly etc. The manager's role in initiating and maintaining service quality in respect of service line management is therefore focused on finding ways to manage specific disciplines, and then also ways in which these can be drawn together and fully integrated. This essay will consider the manager's role in initiating and maintaining service quality in terms of service line management for a user group comprising elderly patients. The essay considers key theories in relation to service line management, looks at the gaps between theory and practice, considers ways in which improvements can be made to current approaches, and presents a series of recommendations regarding ways in which changes could be made that would result in delivery of a better and more efficient service to this particular service......

Lab 3 - Apply Hardening User Account

... This assignment is due by the beginning of class for Unit 4. 1. What is the significance of creating Groups and adding Users to Groups? Explain. Creating groups and adding users to their groups is a form of access control. It basically separates each user into their own departments and allows only authorized users to access the file or directory. For instance, a user from the HR group will be able to access the "HR Records" file but are not allowed to access the Marketing Department files. 2. Given, the scenario where there are 5 database administrators that may periodically need to access to a given system. Discuss a concept to better manage these administrators’ access permissions. For the 5 database administrators, an account and password will be created for each user. A new group will be created for the users and then they will be added to the group. Group permissions can be defined within their departments direct which only the database administrators are allowed access. 3. The new web administrator’s account has been set up and a password provided. What is the process to force a password change upon first login? To force a user to change their password on the initial login, they must use the following command: chage -d 0 [username] 4. What is the purpose of the “su” command? Explain the significance. The purpose of typing the su command will allow a user to run root command without actually giving them root privileges. 5. Restricting the use of SU command......

...Non-immigrant alien firearm rights. MGT 520 DeVry University 2015 The administrative agency which controls the regulation I am interested in is the Department of Justice Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearm and Explosives (ATF). I can’t say that I have a great interest in the agency itself, but this proposal caught my eye and looked interesting. I am interested in this proposal, OMB Number 1140–0060, because I do not believe that any non-citizen should be allowed to purchase and or maintain a firearm while in the United States. If there is, or they feel there is a sufficient threat to themselves, they may contact the police department or simply return to their country of origin. A change to the current regulation will not only affect me, but every single citizen in the USA and business owner alike. We cannot allow non-citizens to purchase and maintain firearms, it is a right that the citizen enjoys and should not be extended to non- citizens. The proposed change discusses nonimmigrant alien information being used to determine if a nonimmigrant alien is eligible to purchase, obtain, possess, or import a firearm. Additionally, nonimmigrant aliens then must maintain the documents while in possession of firearms or ammunition in the United States for verification purposes. The public comment that I would submit for this proposal is, “That I strongly disagree with allowing non-immigrant aliens the ability to acquire firearms while sojourning in the USA. There is no......

Active Directory Users Group Design

...to print the newsletter to all departments, you can simply go into Group Policies of Active Directory. From there, set each electronic device (in this case the printers) you desire to have shared across the company’s network. Each department will be grouped within Active Directory under Organization Units that could be linked to the particular printers in order for each group with in the OU to print the desired material. I advise labeling each printer, then set it as a default to the groups that are linked to it through own OU and AD. In doing so you, whomever is printing the newsletter should have the ability of selecting the correct printer group resources and distributing them to each department. Please be sure Marketing is placed in a OU that has all other department printers installed within. As to your second request, you can simply take all users that are within the forest in question and add them to a global group, form there the universal group. At this point you will need to add the universal group and add it to the domain local group that is within their domain. Said users will at this point have access to everything in that universal group. Be sure and assign the printer as well in order for them to print off the vacation requests to the Human Resources dept. For the question on your R&D, I would advise setting up a limited domain administrator. Create a group for the users of that department in the domain, then you will delegate control......
