Why not simply change the path of "chown" in your sudoers definition to be:
CHOWN_COMMANDS = /usr/bin/chown

Subject: Help With Path Not Working.
I have a requirement from my users so that they do not have to type in the
absolute path for every command when running sudo. The problem occurs when
some commands exist in 2 directories and both directories are in the path.
Cmnd_Alias ARP_COMMANDS = /sbin/arp
Cmnd_Alias CHOWN_COMMANDS = /sbin/chown
fred ALL = ARP_COMMANDS, CHOWN_COMMANDS
sudo arp -a
works correctly. arp command is picked up from /sbin
sudo chown root /tmp/m1
Sorry, user fred is not allowed to execute '/usr/bin/chown root /tmp/m1' as
root on disney
This occurs when chown is in /sbin and /usr/bin
The problem is that I need /sbin in the path in order to execute the arp -a
without specifying the full path of command.
Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong ?
