comment Root access that can't change root password?
While I am not about Ubuntu/Linux, on other UNIX flavours is it possible. Although, you still have the problem of being able to edit any file ( as mentioned above). So the concept is not ludicrous as some would suggest.

comment bash - replace space with new line
If you have multiple spaces between text then you will get blank lines. You need to add a '+' after the \s to indicate that you want to match at least one spaces as apposed to exactly one space. ie. sed 's/\s+/\n/g'

The '-q' option is also found in non-GNU versions of grep.

comment How does systemd survive a kill -9?
@BruceEdiger - I tried it for an AIX server and an HP-UX one. Both returned an error message: kill: 1: 0403-068 The signal is invalid for this process OR kill: 1: The specified process does not exist. The man page specifically mentioned that this will return an error. I am told by a number of people that this could be done previously - but no one has succeeded in the past 10+ years.

comment Shell script to increment count of entries
The '%' (aka 'modulo') will divide the counter by 10 and give the remainer. So, therefore, each time the counter reaches a multiple of ten there will be no remainer (ie 0) and an email will be sent.

comment Solaris “clean” group files (or for that matter any text file)
You might want to keep the old group file as a back-out point just in case. Also before copying the new group file use the command 'grpck' to check if the new group file is actually valid.
