Use a set of permissions for different levels of administrators for an application. A backup application can have operators (perhaps load and unload tapes). It can have local administrators (manage the application within one facility). It can also have overall administrators who may have responsibility for multiple sites and determine backup policy. Note that this feature is very useful in preventing user errors. If junior level administrators are restricted from certain operations, they are prevented from making inadvertent mistakes.
Separate administrators so that root permission to the system is not required to administer the system. You can then separate the administrators for the systems themselves from the ones who administer the applications.
