Adding a new sudo user to CentOs

Our new user will be called batman:

  1. groupadd admins
  2. adduser batman -G admins
  3. passwd batman
  4. visudo (this will open sudoers file in vim)
  5. Add this to the file:
    %admins     ALL=(ALL)     ALL

Any users in the group called ‘admins’ will be sudoers.  So additional users just need to be added to this group.
