sudo is not working

Hi Everybody,

 

I am trying to install sudo on HP-UX 11.23.

I have installed sudo depot file and edited the sudoers file also to give user as root priviliges. But I am getting error like this:

 

# Oct 20 10:42:20 dbtest01 sudo:     test : /opt/iexpress/sudo/etc/sudoers is ow

ned by uid 0, should be 2 ; TTY=pts/tb ; PWD=/home/test ; COMMAND=su

Oct 20 10:42:20 dbtest01 sudo:     test : no valid sudoers sources found, quitti

ng ; TTY=pts/tb ; PWD=/home/test ; COMMAND=su

 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

# pwd /opt/iexpress/sudo/etc
 # ll

total 16

-r--r-----   1 root       sys           2981 Oct 20 10:42 sudoers

drwxr-xr-x   2 bin        bin             96 Oct 19 15:37 sudoers.d

#

 

Pease find the sudoers file also below for reference:

## sudoers file.

Defaults logfile=/var/adm/sudo/sudo.log

Defaults timestampdir=/var/adm/sudo

 

##

## This file MUST be edited with the 'visudo' command as root.

## Failure to use 'visudo' may result in syntax or file permission errors

## that prevent sudo from running.

##

## See the sudoers man page for the details on how to write a sudoers file.

Anyhelp will be very much appreciated

First, always make sure to edit the 'sudoers' file with 'visudo'.  This is a 'vi' session with additional protective checks for SUDO.

 

Did you see this message? :

 

/opt/iexpress/sudo/etc/sudoers is owned by uid 0, should be 2

 

Change the ownership as shown.

 

Regards!
