The abstract question is:

If script x calls program y, do I need a NOPASSWD entry in /etc/sudoers for x, y or both x & y? (And can x then call sudo -v without a password?)

Details:

I'm trying to figure out what should go into the /etc/sudoers file to allow a user on Ubuntu (i.e., user ID 1000 who has sudo privileges) to execute a pre-configured full backup without entering a password.

My backup script is: /usr/local/bin/backup
(See below for script.)

The actual backup program called by my script is /opt/storeBackup/bin/storeBackup.pl
(See http://storebackup.org/)

I tried several approaches with visudo but regardless of what I tried, I was still prompted for the password when running the script.

I expected that adding a final line to /etc/sudoers (using visudo) like the following would work:

myuser ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWORD:/usr/local/bin/backup

That didn't work. Neither did this:

myuser ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWORD:/usr/local/bin/backup, /opt/storeBackup/bin/storeBackup.pl

Is the problem due to my script calling sudo -v near the beginning? Or is something else the problem?

To execute the following script, I expect the user to open a terminal and type backup. I want it to be that simple and I don't want them to be prompted for a password at all.

#!/bin/bash

sudo -v
# Keep-alive: update existing sudo time stamp if set, otherwise do nothing.
while true; do sudo -n true; sleep 60; kill -0 "$$" || exit; done 2>/dev/null &

#do a bunch of stuff that could take a while...

#finally, do backup without asking for password:
sudo /opt/storeBackup/bin/storeBackup.pl -f backup.conf

Thanks

  • Have you tried removing everything except for the last line? You haven't given your user permission to run true with no password and those lines are completely unnecessary anyways.

I was successful in using the following examples as you've described. Sample scripts:

top.bash
$ cat /tmp/top.bash    
#!/bin/bash

echo "running $0"
sudo -v 
whoami
sudo /tmp/bott.bash
bott.bash
$ more /tmp/bott.bash
#!/bin/bash

echo "running $0"
whoami

Now with the following modification to sudo:

## Allow root to run any commands anywhere 
root    ALL=(ALL)       ALL
sam     ALL=(ALL)       NOPASSWD:/tmp/top.bash

Now as user sam:

$ sudo /tmp/top.bash 
running /tmp/top.bash
root
running /tmp/bott.bash
root

What about running top.bash without sudo?

If I alter the /etc/sudoers file like so:

sam     ALL=(ALL)       NOPASSWD:/tmp/top.bash,/tmp/bott.bash

And then just run /tmp/top.bash as user saml:

$ /tmp/top.bash 
running /tmp/top.bash
sam
running /tmp/bott.bash
root

I get the above. Which is what I would expect.

  • Thanks. This all works for me, except for sudo -v in top.bash (and the while loop in my original script). Maybe I can find a way around using those...

  • I ran /tmp/top.bash without sudo and as my regular user; that's how my real script gets called. It worked. It even works if I add in the while true loop. But in my real script it does not work unless I remove sudo -v and the while true loop. However, I see no differences in the code at all. Very strange...

  • Thanks. Yes, I had to do the same alteration of /etc/sudoers. So our results are the same for the test script. But my actual script chokes on sudo -v (as in top.bash) and I cannot find any differences in the code (or file permissions).

  • @MountainX - is apparmor enabled? I'm wondering if it's interfering w/ the locations of scripts even though sudo is allowing it.

If you use Ubuntu, you should add your line at the end of /etc/sudoers, so no others lines can override your entry.

# User privilege specification
root    ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL

# Members of the admin group may gain root privileges
%admin ALL=(ALL) ALL

# Allow members of group sudo to execute any command
%sudo   ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL

# See sudoers(5) for more information on "#include" directives:

#includedir /etc/sudoers.d

If your entry goes before %sudo entry, it will override your entry, because in Ubuntu, you are in sudo group:

$ id
uid=1000(cuonglm) gid=1000(cuonglm) groups=1000(cuonglm),4(adm),24(cdrom),27(sudo),30(dip),46(plugdev),109(lpadmin),124(sambashare)

And you must allow both your wrapper script and actual script (In your case, it's /usr/local/bin/backup and /opt/storeBackup/bin/storeBackup.pl)

This info is for @slm. (See https://unix.stackexchange.com/a/120159/15010 .) Even with this simple case, it asks for the password.

$ sudo cat /etc/sudoers

tester2 ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: /usr/local/bin/backup, /opt/storeBackup/bin/storeBackup.pl

tester2@11038-VirtualBox:~$ sudo -l

Matching Defaults entries for tester2 on this host:
    env_reset,
    secure_path=/usr/local/sbin\:/usr/local/bin\:/usr/sbin\:/usr/bin\:/sbin\:/bin,
    !tty_tickets

User tester2 may run the following commands on this host:
    (ALL : ALL) ALL
    (ALL) NOPASSWD: /usr/local/bin/backup, (ALL) /opt/storeBackup/bin/storeBackup.pl

I'm testing with only one file (this one):
$cat /usr/local/bin/backup

#!/bin/bash

echo "$0"
sudo -v 
whoami

The above file is executable and it is owned by the user (tester2 / id 1000).

And running this commmand strace -s 2000 -o sudo.log /usr/local/bin/backup from tester2's account looks like this (and I entered the password):

execve("/usr/local/bin/backup", ["backup"], [/* 45 vars */]) = 0
