add root privileges to user

I am using SLES 15.
I have new user for some application and it required to have root privilege.
how to give the user with root privilege?


Hi @M,

I believe the recommended way to give root privileges to another user is by using “sudo”.

There is official SUSE documentation about using “sudo” in SLES 15 SP2 (Service Pack 2), for instance, in the following web page of the “SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 15 SP2 Administration Guide”:

sudo Basics | Administration Guide | SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 15 SP2

I hope this helps.

Hi @ricmarq .
Thanks for the answer
I need to give the root privilege to new user for running script backup using veeam backup.


Hi @M,
You’re welcome. I’ve never used “Veeam Backup”. Have you checked the Veeam technical Documentation? Maybe there’s something in that documentation that is more specific and that may help you.
