change privileage

How can I change the privileage of a normal user so that he can run the copy & file command on the files in the /usr/spool/lp/reuest/lp directory in Hpux 9.0, As i want to run a shell script containg these commands by that user.
Thanks

Re: change privileage

You can use sudo - assign privileges to that user to execute the script as desired user.

Re: change privileage

sudo with hp-ux 9.0x?

Unlikely.

I guess there is no clean solution for this.

Hope this helps!

Re: change privileage

But sudo is not working in Hp-ux 9.0, can I use su in the shell script before running the restricted commands, if it is , how can i enter the password?

You can't, unless you port expect too.
You probably need to write a custom SETUID C program that does the command you want.
