Puma server configuration

Hacking hawk tools

Hawk's tools are the programs under the

folder (
ls /usr/sbin/hawk_* -l+ +
-rwsr-x--- 1 root haclient 9884 2011-04-14 22:56 /usr/sbin/hawk_chkpwd+
-rwsr-x--- 1 root haclient 9928 2011-04-14 22:56 /usr/sbin/hawk_invoke+

is almost identical to
, except it restricts acccess to users in the
group, and doesn't inject any delay when invoked by the
user (which is the user the Hawk web server instance runs as).

allows the
user to run a small assortment of Pacemaker CLI tools as another user in order to support Pacemaker's ACL feature. It is used by Hawk when performing various management tasks.
