Need to start providing On call support to some of our DB Servers that are running on Linux Hosts.
Being able to ssh to the boxes is essential.
Downloaded Putty from here.
Launched Putty.exe, thanks goodness no installation needed.
The Putty Screen is very minimal:
- Host Name or IP address
Using keyboard-interactive authentication. Password : Access denied
Have your Active Directory support group add you to the impacted AD Group
net group [ADgroup] /domain
net group grpLinuxDBA /domain
Have Centrify Administrators do the following:
- Create an account for you
- Add you to an existing group that has access to the Linux DB Hosts
- Grant explicit sudo access to created account or inherit from group membership
BTW, the Centrify product that we use is listed here.
