These systems can still be security risks, so you should include them in your automation system. You have to be aware of conflicts that might arise between your automation system and the user’s own actions. The user might destroy something your system did, in C HA P TER 1 N I N T R O D U C I N G T H E B A S I C S O F A U T O M A T I O N which case the system should do it again automatically. Similarly, your automation might destroy changes the user wanted to make on his or her system—you would have to work with the user to find a different way to make the change.
Allowing Limited Command Execution Suppose you have a script that monitors a set of servers. Root access is not necessary for monitoring the systems. The script does, however, need to reboot the machines in some C HA P TER 3 N US ING S S H TO A U T O M A T E S Y S T E M A D M I N I S T R A T I O N S E C U R E L Y cases, which does require root access.

If you make a change to one or more configuration servers, all your systems will pick up those changes when they can. If a system is a laptop at somebody’s home, it might not get the changes until the next day. If a system has hardware problems, it might not get the changes until the next week. But all your systems will eventually have the changes applied—and most almost immediately.
