BoKS Manager

Version 8.1 (version update)

January 25, 2023

New Features
  • New configuration parameter authentication/always-allow-root-sudo has been added with a default value of true.

    Normally when a user does sudo to another user, a request is sent to servc on a Replica to check if it is allowed. If this parameter is set to true, no request is sent to servc when root does sudo to another user. In cases where local applications frequently do sudo from root to an application account to perform some action, performance can be improved. If root does sudo -i to another user and does not specify full path to the program to run and the program is not in root's PATH, sudo will fail unless this parameter is set to true, as the full program path is needed when checking with servc if the access is allowed. Note: If this parameter is set to true, there is no way to get keystroke log for root doing sudo.

  • Support is added for SuSE 12 s390x (Server Agent only).

  • Support is added for SuSE 15 s390x (Server Agent only).

  • Installation of RHEL9.0 native packages in RHEL9.1.
