If you have root privileges, you can add or remove people from
editing the group in LDAP:
$ kinit you/admin you/admin@OCF.BERKELEY.EDU's Password: $ ldapvi cn=ocfstaff
Then add or remove the appropriate
Before giving anyone root privileges, make sure to obtain authorization from the SM.
Adding or removing people from
ocfroot is similar to modifying
ocfstaff. However, if you are adding someone to root staff, in addition to
modifying LDAP, you will also have to create their
principals (if those don't already exist). For example, to create the

$ kadmin kadmin> add otherstaffer/admin you/admin@OCF.BERKELEY.EDU's Password: Max ticket life [1 day]: Max renewable life [1 week]: Principal expiration time [never]: Password expiration time [never]: Attributes : Policy [default]: otherstaffer/admin@OCF.BERKELEY.EDU's Password: Verify password - otherstaffer/admin@OCF.BERKELEY.EDU's Password:

In order to gain access to the firewall, it is necessary to email someone from the ASUC Student Union to ask them to fill out the Telecom Shopping Cart on your behalf. Send them an email with the CalNet IDs of the people you want to add to the firewall, and have an existing firewall administrator authorize the request. As of Fall 2017, the Facilities Coordinator has worked to get new people added to the firewall, although it is likely that this process will change in Spring/Fall 2018 when the firewall is changed as part of the bSecure project.
We are able to obtain signed certificates at no charge through the campus InCommon-Comodo certificate service. In order to gain access to this service, a staffer needs to be listed as a Departmental Certificate Administrator for the OCF. A current DCA can add other DCAs by sending a request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Refer to the service's help page for more information.
