Hi Ray, You will absolutely need command line access to the Galaxy server for some of the administration tasks - the web admin controls and web report tool only let you do some of the likely tasks.
During the initial setup admin (sudo) rights would be useful, at very least you'll need the sys admin to help with mounting shared network drives, cluster integration, database setup. If you want to run cluster jobs as the associated Unix account of each user, or anything like LDAP logins, then again you will need help from your sys admin.
