Hi sudo users,

I've a strange problem with some of my hosts!

Here is a small /etc/sudoers:

User_Alias      HLP = vincentb, chris, tshirt


HLP             xxx = /bin/vi /usr/local/lib/mail/domains/*


When chris tries to use sudo on xxx, he always got the following

Sorry, user chris may not run sudo on xxx.

Any idea, why this fails????
