AIX 5.3 - What does admin=true means?
Posted on 2009-07-03
I am not that clear about what kind of user is the one with this setting: admin=true. Per IBM reference
"The user is an administrator. Only the root user can change the attributes of users defined as administrators. "
However, I've also seen on other sites that it means that only root can change the password of this user.
So my question is, does the user with admin=true have full (administrator) access to the system or is just a restriction on who can change the user password?
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
