SUDO rights for Hardware/Software Inventory

We need sudo rights with no password prompt for the following commands:

  • /sbin/date                                                   
  • /bin/date
  • /sbin/sh ./ndtrack.sh *                                 
  • /bin/sh ./ndtrack.sh *
  • /sbin/rm –f ./ndtrack.sh ./ndtrack.ini             
  • /bin/rm –f ./ndtrack.sh ./ndtrack.ini


The resultant SUDO configuration line is as follows:

{UserName}  ALL = (root) NOPASSWD: /bin/date,/sbin/date,/bin/sh ./ndtrack.sh *,/sbin/sh ./ndtrack.sh *,/bin/rm -f ./ndtrack.sh ./ndtrack.ini,/sbin/rm -f ./ndtrack.sh ./ndtrack.ini

Note1:  Please replace {UserName} with the user for RayVentory. 

Note2:  To edit the sudo configuration use the visudo command.
