Linux Administrator for fast-growing company

As the Linux Administrator for fast-growing company, you have been tasked with creating, modifying, and removing user accounts from the Linux server. The company has just hired 9 new employees to fill 3 newly designed departments.  The departments that have been created are Engineering, Sales and IS.  The server must be setup with the appropriate files, folders, users, groups and permissions to ensure a successful launch of the newly designed departments. 

Make sure that at least two services such as Web server, e-mail server, ftp server or any other server is running.  Describe location of the files and what you had to do to enable the server.  Give a short description of what the daemon (service) does how does it functions.  Generally, the description should be high level, but you may want to include some details such as formatting.


  • Create a directory at the root (/) of the file system for each department.  This name should reflect the department name that will use the directory.
  • Create a group for each department.  This name should reflect the department name that the group will be assigned. 
  • Create an administrative user for each of the departments.
    • The user will have a Bash login shell
    • The user will belong to the respective group for each department.  This will need to be the user’s primary group.
  • Create two additional users for each department.
    • The users will have a Bash login shell.
    • The users will belong to their respective group for each department.  This will need to be the user’s primary group.
  • For security reasons, the following modifications will need to be made to each of the departments' respective directories:
    • Ensure that the owner of each of the directories is the department administrator and the group ownership is the group for each department. 
    • The department administrator will have full access to their respective department directories. 
    • Ensure that only the owner of a file in the department’s directory can delete the file.  The user will also have ownership of their respective department folders. 
    • Normal users in each department will have full access (Read, Write and Execute) to their respective department folders.
    • The department folders will ONLY be accessible by users/administrators in each of the respective departments.  Ensure that no one else will have permissions to the folders.   
  • Create a document in each of the department directories. 
    • The ownerships on this file will be the same as the directory it is located in. 
    • The document should contain only one line of text that states, “This file contains confidential information for the department.” 
    • This file can be read by any user in the department, but can only be modified by the department administrator.  No one else has permissions to this file.
