user permissions report on *nix servers
Posted on 2013-06-12
How can you determine what permissions each local user account on a *nix server has? In this case I am interested in a AIX IBM SYstem. I can see a list of users in \etc\password, but how can you marry that up to what permissions they have over the System.
On a Windows Server you typically have local groups, i.e. administrators, power users, users, backup operators etc. Is the concept similar in *nix systems? If so which are the more powerful groups/type of user to be concious about?
