Unable to do su - for a application user

Hi,

 

It is regarding one application user who is unable to do the su - app_oaps

 

root@stowe /usr/lbin# /usr/lbin/getprpw app_oaps
uid=35059, bootpw=NO, audid=127, audflg=1, mintm=0, maxpwln=-1, exptm=0, lftm=0, spwchg=Tue Nov 29 21:59:16 2011, upwchg=Thu Aug 19 14:19:40 2010, acctexp=-1, llog=-1, expwarn=0, usrpick=DFT, syspnpw=DFT, rstrpw=DFT, nullpw=DFT, admnum=-1, syschpw=DFT, sysltpw=DFT, timeod=-1, slogint=Tue Dec 13 17:12:59 2011, ulogint=Tue Dec 13 15:59:35 2011, sloginy=pts/te, culogin=-1, uloginy=pts/te, umaxlntr=-1, alock=NO, lockout=0000000

 

I have reset the passwd also but still unable to do su - app_oaps.

 

 

root@stowe /usr/lbin# cat /etc/sudoers
# sudoers file.

root@stowe /usr/lbin#

 

 

What could be the possible issue?

Re: Unable to do su - for a application user

So what happens when you try to do the 'su - app_oaps'?  Do you get an error?

 

You posted the sudoers file as well.  Are you expecting sudo to be magically invoked?  If you want to use sudo you need to do:

 

# sudo su - app_oaps

 

You then need the specify YOUR password (NOT the app_oaps password).
