How to install and config sudo in HP-UX 11i v3.

Hi All,

I would like to install and config sudo in HP-UX 11i v3.

I have some questions:

1)Is sudo coming default with HP-UX 11i v3?

2)If not, Where we can get sudo software for HP-UX 11i v3 from?

3)How to install the sudo?

4)what is the sudo configuration file?

Try the HP-UX porting archive:

http://hpux.connect.org.uk/hppd/hpux/Sysadmin/sudo-1.7.2p1/

It has compiled versions of sudo for different Hp_UX versions.

Read manual for the configuration.

If I recall correctly it may also be included in the Internet Express packaging, if you have that. Configuring depends on what you want to accomplish. You could always try googling:
+sudo +configure +site:itrc.hp.com

>>configuration file is /opt/iexpress/sudo/etc/sudoers

But, you should not edit this file directly with 'vi'. You should use the command 'visudo'. This opens the file in 'vi', but when you exit it does syntax checking on the file to make sure the file is correct and sudo can interpret it. If there are errors, it will tell you about them.
