I m using multiple scripts which are running on one master computer(server) and fetching records from another computers(client).
Machine A running scripts to execute code on Client machines say Machine B ,Machine C and Machine D
Output of the script is then emailed to user.
I have added ssh keygen so that password less login and command execution can be done on client machine.
However All of the above was done using root user and now i want to use a normal user account to do the same.
What are the steps involved if i do this?
One way to do this is to create a simple user @ server end and add all the script in sudoer files against that account.
This will solve the problem of permission denied error @ server end.
But what about client end.
There are lot of different commands which are executed @ client end.Do i need to add all of them in sudoer file against the user name.
and then run
ssh -ttq sudo <command>
is there any other better alternative to this?
Hope my question is clear.
