Re: VNC password hit from Retina

Yeah I know that CentOS is not listed, but RHEL 5 is very similar to CentOS 5

VNC password hit from Retina

Hello, At work the security team told me that when they scanned my servers with Retina and found that VNC doesn't require a password. I have test this and I'm not able to access a VNC session without a password. This looks like it may be a false positive, but I need to make sure, because I want to m...

Re: account issue

Ok, I figured it out. In /etc/sudoers I needed to add un comment this line. ## Allows people in group wheel to run all commands %wheel ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: ALL Now the bitlord account can use the GUI admin apps. This is odd because I was having no issues with sudo on the command line. I hope this hel...

account issue

Hello, I'm having an issue with a RHEL 5 server. The gnome desktop is not working right. The desktop admin apps will not load for any other user other then the user that was made during the server install. All the accounts will get a pop-up to get the root password, but only the account that was bui...

Re: quick pathing question

pschaff, I have always liked Red Hat. I only became a Solaris admin because I always got more calls for those types of jobs. I have never crashed a RHEL server and I have found that many things are just easier to do. Anyway I see you live in my area, where do you go for training? I ask because my wo...

Re: quick pathing question

scottro, I read the page from your link. I'm wanting to keep my environment when I become root. My environment has all the right PATH statements I need to do my job. The root environment on CentOS has very little in it's PATH statement. What I normally do is type sudo bash if i'm going to do a lot o...

Re: quick pathing question

Thanks for your help. I used to do sudo su - a long time ago before I a co-worker showed me sudo bash. I tried your suggestion and it seems to do the same thing as sudo -i. I don't like how it uses roots home directory instead of mine, for example cd ~. I don't like how when you switch back to a nor...

Re: quick pathing question

Thanks for your reply. I don't normally do that. If you use sudo you don't need to put in roots password. I'm just trying to improve my CentOS skills without changing my work flow. I have experience with RHEL and SUSIE servers as well but I have put more time into customize my environment. This serv...

Re: quick pathing question

Ok, I did mean to upset you.

Anyway the page you linked to says to do sudo -s or -i. The -s option didn't work and the -i option clears the screen after you switch back. So neither works for me. I guess I have to modify the PATH statement for root.
