Using command rights in a standard shell

Command rights are assigned to you so that you can perform privileged operations that are not available to you by default.

On most UNIX and Linux computers, commands that require elevated permissions can be run by invoking the sudo command. The Centrify agent provides similar functionality, but the commands are instead invoked using the dzdo command, then typing the command to execute, including any command-line options that you are allowed to use.

For example, assume your administrator has defined a command right for adjoin that enables you to execute the command as the root user. If this right is added to a role that has been assigned to you, you can execute the command by typing the following:

dzdo adjoin
