sudo newbie here...
I just configured SAMBA on my (Fedora) Linux so that Domain Users can
logon to the machine; I did this using winbind;
Now, I'm trying to give users who are part of the group "Domain Admins"
who logon to that machine the ability to run any command as root...which
is why I came to sudo!
The problem I'm facing, is that the group name I want to put in the
sudoers file has spaces in it: "Domain Admins"
and it looks like sudoers doesn't accept spaces for group names;
Example valid snip of sudoers file:
%nospacesinthisgroupname ALL=(ALL) ALL
but the syntax I'm using fails:
%Domain Admins ALL=(ALL) ALL
Is there a way around this? Anyone else ran into a similar situation?
