- Create the Directory "/home/manager" 
# mkdir /home/manager
- Change the group ownership of "/home/manager" to "sysadms" group
# chgrp sysadms /home/manager
- Set full permission for all members of "sysadms" group and not to other users except "root"

Q21. Container
  • Create a container logserver from an image rsyslog in node1 From
  • Configure the container with systemd services by an existing user “Walhalla”,
  • Service name should be container-logserver, and configure it to start automatically across reboot.

# systemctl --user daemon-reload 
# systemctl --user enable --now container-logserver.service  
# systemctl --user start --now container-logserver.service  
# systemctl --user status --now container-logserver.service

# find / -type f -user student -exec cp -rvfp {} /root/student.found \;
# ll /root/student.found
2. Search the keyword “sar” in /usr/share/dict/words file and store the lines in /root/sar.found.
# grep sa /usr/share/dict/words |sort > /root/sar.found

4. Write a script named under /root which will search less than 2M files from /var and store it in /root/backup and also set the permission of set user identifier (SGID)
# vi

find /usr -type f -size -2M -exec cp {} /root/backup \;

:wq! (save and exit from file)

#chmod 2775
5. Give the sudo permission to group1.
# vi /etc/sudoers


:wq! (save and exit)
