After Login Command sudo from Credential

  • Create an Issue
  • Cancel

Hi,
we have a strange requirement and i hope you can help me.

Finally Linux server Admins also like RDM :-)
The Problem is, that our concept for administrative SSH-Session is as follows:

  • The user logs on with his personal (LDAP) Account.
  • Then the user switches to Root via sudo
su -
<root-password>

now the first connection works fine via our integration into secretserver. What we now need i :

get the root password from secretserver and use it as an "After Login Command" as <root-password>

I know we can use a normal Variable Field here (and for a Proof of concept we do exactly this: Enter the password into $COMPANY_CUSTOM_FIELD1$ and us it in the "After Login Command"


su -
$COMPANY_CUSTOM_FIELD1$


But i would like to fetch the Password from Secretserver with the standard methods and use it here.

Thank you
Peter

Hi,
For now I don't have a simple solution. I will need a little of time to think about it. Perhaps by mixing a Macro/Script/Tool with a Secret Server credential entry.

Hi,

I would also like to know how to implement an Auto "sudo -i" using a credential repository.

Thanks,
