Option A. IASTATE Domain System (Standard Lab Build)
The system would be in the IASTATE domain and would be configured similar to a lab system. We would grant you sudo privileges to install software and also give you full read-write access to certain directories you need.
* IASTATE Domain Authentication
* You cannot get root access
* You can get limited sudo privileges
* Full read and write access to /local, /usr/local, and /tmp
* Full support
Sudo commands that can be granted
Networking: /sbin/route, /sbin/ifconfig, /bin/ping, /sbin/dhclient, /usr/bin/net, /sbin/iptables, /usr/bin/rfcomm, /usr/bin/wvdial, /sbin/iwconfig, /sbin/mii-tool Installation and management of software: /bin/rpm, /usr/bin/up2date, /usr/bin/yum Services: /sbin/service, /sbin/chkconfig Updating the locate database: /usr/sbin/updatedb Storage: /sbin/fdisk, /sbin/sfdisk, /sbin/parted, /sbin/partprobe, /bin/mount, /bin/umount Processes: /bin/nice, /bin/kill, /usr/bin/kill, /usr/bin/killall Drivers: /sbin/modprobe
Others on a individual bases
Option B. Stand Alone System (Outside of IASTATE Domain)
This would be a standalone box. We give you the root password. With this option you are more responsible for maintaining and setting up things. If you break anything you will be responsible for fixing it unless it requires a rebuild. We will help to a certain extent with setting up some software, email, and auto mounting; but will not be able to help as in option A.
* You get root access
* Limited access to commercial software
* We cannot guaranty the integrity of the system
