SambaXP Episode 4


Jerry shows us some other nice features and some very dark uncommented features form our M$ friends.

One of those nice features is the possibility to setup a Service Control Delegation that allows users from certain groups to start or stop some services running on the GNU/Linux server like cups, apache…

I guess that this feature will be very appreciate by some n00b Linux Administrators or even more by some customers having no experience with our favorite operating system. But in other more useful cases, if administrators would like to give some privileges to start/stop a specific service for a specific user having no Linux experience and to who nobody’ would like to give the root password.
