Rootless Admin

Sometimes, I wonder what kind of things get into peoples’ heads. At work today, I was given access to a number of servers in order to install our application on it. Another department had set it up for our usage. Unfortunately, I ran into problems real quickly. I was not able to install any application on it. Turned out that while I had root access via sudo, I did not actually have root permissions.

Sometimes, things happen that give me pause. I wonder.
