I just started a new job and directly got problems with the guys operating our server farms (company is quite big). I was used to use docker and would like to keep that going with the products I am designing.
As a requirement, I told that guys I need the Docker daemon to run as root user. The server guys just told me, that they won't support our machines if we run 3rd party sotfware as a root user. There's no argumentation about that. Period.
But, they told me, if we could use sudo and restrict the sudo rights to the absolute minimum required, this would be a solution.
is there something known how I could handle that or circumvent that dogmatic "I need root" rule?
