Comment 1 Ivan Necas 2017-04-03 11:24:41 UTC
Created redmine issue http://projects.theforeman.org/issues/19130 from this bug

Comment 2 Tom McKay 2017-05-10 14:09:26 UTC
Suggest that cu may set any command to substitute sudo, where sudo is the default value.

1. Proposed title of this feature request  
[RFE] Feature to use the 'dzdo' as the "remote_execution_effective_user_method" to run the remote commands with a non-root user.
3. What is the nature and description of the request?  

-> Customer wishes to configure the Satellite server to run the remote commands with the "remote_execution_effective_user_method" as dzdo rather than "sudo".

4. Why does the customer need this? (List the business requirements here)

-> In customer's environment they have disabled the root login from SSH. As they are using the centrify server, they use the dzdo tool instead of sudo. So they need to configure remote execution with dzdo tool.

5. How would the customer like to achieve this? (List the functional requirements here)

-> Adding the feature for the dzdo tool as a "remote_execution_effective_user_method".

Moving this bug to POST for triage into Satellite 6 since the upstream issue http://projects.theforeman.org/issues/19130 has been resolved.

Comment 16 Peter Ondrejka 2018-11-05 13:12:56 UTC
Verified on Sat 6.5 sn 2, the dzdo option can be set in Effective User Method setting and dzdo command gets run when executing a remote job as a non-root user.
