Limited Administrator

November 30Hits:0
Advertisement
I'm wanting to set up what I am calling a limited administrator account on my Mac running Leopard. Basically what I'm looking to do is provide a user with almost all the rights of a standard administrator except ban them from changing network settings. There will also be a full administrator account that can do everything. I don't think there's a way of doing this via the GUI (if there is, please let me know), but if there is a command line way that would work as well. Thanks.

That's true Niel - unless the full administrator has put a password on root that prevents the limited administrator from accessing root. But the user creation issue would be hard to get around I suppose - without taking that right from the limited administrator as well.
