Ok, I've realized what's the problem. Hostname has changed and I didn't change the Host_Alias line on /etc/sudoers

  Subject: user not allowed to run sudo

  Hi sudoers.

      This is my first posting to this list. I'm using sudo from two months ago and everything worked fine till yesterday. I don't know why, when I try to run a command allowed for a user in NOPASSWD mode, sudo ask me for a password and even typing the root password the message is the same: Sorry, try again. Finally it gives me the message: "user not allowed to run sudo on this host"

      These are the details of my configuration:

      Solaris 8 (Sparc)

      ---s--x--x   1 root     root       95756 May 21 13:43 /usr/local/bin/sudo

      -r--r-----   1 root     root         966 May 21 13:47 /etc/sudoers

  # sudoers file.
  # This file MUST be edited with the 'visudo' command as root.
  # See the sudoers man page for the details on how to write a sudoers file.

  # Host alias specification
  Host_Alias      SERVERS = sun1

  # User alias specification
  User_Alias      PRUEBA = prueba

  # Cmnd alias specification
  Cmnd_Alias      NESCIB16 = /usr/netscape/server4/https-cib16/start, /usr/netscape/server4/https-cib16/restart, /usr/netscape

  # User privilege specification
  root    ALL=(ALL) ALL

  Any suggestion appreciated
