I hope someone can help with this strange occurence
with sudo. For many months I copied and pasted
contents of the sudo file from one machine to another
without a glitch. We have several machines and
management requires that the sudoers file be uniform
on all machines so we have only one file to maintain.
On this HP-UX machine, I backed up the /etc/sudoers
file. Then openedd /etc/sudoers with vi and pasted
the content of a sudoers file from another HP machine
that I just updated. I did not check the permissions
because, first I have done this before, second, I did
not recreate the file. When we rebooted the machine,
the permissions were changed to 0000. Does anyone
know what happened?
