sudo problem in Hp-ux

Hi

sudo is installed In my hp-ux server.

I checked below using below command.

root@lgapps:/root > swlist -l product | grep -i sudo
sudo 1.6.6 sudo


But the problem is i am not able to execute "visudo" "vi /usr/local/etc/sudoers"

Ex:

root@lgapps:/root > visudo
su: visudo: not found.

How to solve this problem.

Hi,
maybe an issue with the path.
if
# which visudo
no visudo in ....
# swlist -l file sudo.1.6.6 | grep visudo
Correct you PATH

Re: sudo problem in Hp-ux

visudo is probably j2st not in your PATH variable.

You need to figure out where 'visudo' is installed, and then add that directory to your PATH.

Most likely, sudo is going to be installed in /usr/local, though it may be in /opt. Try running "find /opt /usr -name visudo" to find out which, then add that location to your PATH environment variable.

Hi,
Typo error, on the first you talk about 1.6.6 not 1.6.1. Try with 1.6.6

2) root@lgapps:/root > which visudo
no visudo in /appl/avl/bin /usr/sbin

All this is saying is that 'visudo' is not found in the 2 directories listed.

Try the 'find' command that Pete suggested. That should locate the 'visudo' program.

Re: sudo problem in Hp-ux

Assuming that the sudo in question was downloaded from the Porting and Archive Center, it would be installed in /usr/local. If you look at the man page on the P&A site, it suggest running "sudo -e" which will invoke whichever editor is currently set.

Hi,
sudo.1.6.6 is a old release perhaps for 11.00.
I get it in attach for 11.00.

Try "swlist -l file sudo".
