I need to allow certain users limited access to the lab server. The server is RHEL 5.6. However, I don't want to give them the root access. Basically, we have configured a LDAP server where all the users have centralized NFS and LDAP login from any of the client machines in the network. So, the LDAP users home area is located in /home/users in the server. I need to give access to only this folder to a certain user.

If I edit the visudo file and add the following line, will I be able to accomplish what am looking for?

user1, %operator ALL= /home/users
