Should one always set a root password, or is
sudo -i acceptable? Two problems is in reading other posts (maybe junk I realize):
sudo -ieliminates the need for a password. Isn't that a problem for security reasons?
- there are conflicting views on whether to change the password from its original hash value:
By default the root user is setup with a random hash during the install of Ubuntu
If one should use the original hash value, I have no idea what mine is. How do I retrieve it?
Lastly, does the answer change if multiple people will be using the root account (password sharing best practices)?
