SLIDE: The Role of the System Administrator Student Notes
The system administrator is responsible for setting up and maintaining the system. Not only must the administrator understand both hardware and software, but he or she must also understand the needs of the user community. Since many of the tasks associated with these responsibilities require access to commands that should not be available to everyone, the system administrator needs special access to the system. This access is called superuser or root access. H3064S A.
