Actually I am a bit confused for "/bin/su" command access.
For the lines with "/bin/su" , what does this mean exactly ? Does this mean that, I can do "\sudo su - hubsup" OR "\sudo su -l - hubsup" i.e. switching to hubsup user , which won't ask me for any password.
Actually, I tried with "\sudo su - hubsup" OR "\sudo su -l - hubsup" , from my user account, but, I was not able to switch to "hubsup" user.
with command, "\sudo /bin/su - hubsup" , i am getting blank output on the screen. Pressing enter key, is showing "WinSCP: this is end-of-file:0
" again and again. Then, I need to press ctrl+C to come out of the execution.
Can you please help me, in understanding, what is the meaning of "(root) NOPASSWD: /bin/su - hubsup" and how I can make use of "su" command, from my user-account here. (to switch to "hubsup" user)
