The sudo command, which stands for "super-user do" allows users to run commands with elevated access as the root user, or as another user. In this lab, students will learn to add a new user to the system, and configure sudo to allow the user to run commands as the super-user.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
