Lets say we have to users, foo and bar.|
Is there a way to configure RSE to allow be to login with SSH/SFTP as user foo and sudo to user bar?
I want to be able to perform commands, uploading/downloading files as user bar.
My current situation is that:
* I cannot perform ssh login with user bar.
* I cannot change to user bar in any other way than using "sudo -u bar sudosh" after logging in with user foo. This limits the way of getting bar rights as well as it requires me to start with the sudosh shell.
* I must enter a password when performing sudo.
If not configurable, is it possible to create a new custom configuration using the extension points, that extends ssh/sftp to perform login with user foo and then under the hood does the sudo stuff? Is this even possible with ssh?
I have tried using the dstore stuff but it still requires me to start a separate ssh login session and do:
$ sudo -u bar sudosh
$ ./server.sh <predefined port>
Which takes a lot of time since i need to login to several machines to do some tasks. And then switch to another set of machines to do some tasks. Besides that, the server must be installed/configured on all machines.
I don't have root access or the possibility to change the user foo and bar permissions.
