being asked for the password even with a NOPASSWD option...

well, i accidentally deleted one response to my query when i was about to
reply to it ... not very good. but anyhow, i believe the question was
"what does 'sudo -l' show":
User jadeweb may run the following commands on this host:
(jaderun) NOPASSWD: /opt/web/jade/admin/serverAction
i have more information on this, however ...
it seems as if 3 users on my system shared the same UID -- (505 in this
case). currently, i'm blaming SuSE for this, since i added a few users
with "adduser" and a few users through their GUI utility. didn't
really check to make sure it wasn't picking the same UID (didn't think it
would) but when i checked the passwd file, they all were using ID 505.
anyhow, i have a feeling that has alot to do with it, as since i have
cleaned it up, the problem has not shown itself again.
if it does indeed come back again, i shall run the above asked for command
at that point to see what it displays....
sorry for the alarm;
