I have created an admin group called 'admins' and replaced %wheel in sudoers under /etc with this group.. I have created a user 'sysadmin' and added him to the admins group.

As a result of above the 'sysadmin' account is able to execute all commands just like root however, I am not able to write to any of the directories in Linux e.g. /tmp

Are there any additional steps I need to perform??  Please advise.
