Hey SA Community,


I am looking to disable root login via SSH which is easy enough but I also don't want to lose my ability to SFTP the files in /etc/netwitness/ng/envision/etc/devices.


I have already setup PAM and added the users to wheel so I can get root access if needed.  The best way I thought to do this was to change group ownership to wheel then change permissions to the files to 660 so I will be able to sftp the information off with my own user account.  I am just worried this might break other internal processes, any ideas?


If all else fails I will open a support case and see what they say also.
