My teamlead, who's a great C# programmer but doesn't know squat about Linux, deleted the /etc directory of our main linux fileserver as root.

After that we disabled his ability to rm anything... replacing the rm command with a backup feature... I think it was a perl script. :)

    and he still had root access? :-)


      Heh. Yeah, it's funny how often managers and bosses think that because they're boss they have to have root. Essentially we've neutered root, unless you have some minimal linux skillz, which luckily haven't shown any sign of appearing lately.
