Solairs 8 compat mode

Hello All,
I am having an issue using sudo in (NIS) compat mode on solaris 8.  
I currently have several solaris 2.6 machines in this configuration that work.  The passwd file has entries for the users I want to allow on the machine.
passwd: compat
group: compat
Sudo works perfect on solaris 2.6 with this setup.  But on solaris 8, sudo will never accept the valid password.  If I change /etc/nsswitch.conf back to "passwd: files nis" then sudo works fine, but I do not get the restricted login I am looking for.
I'm I way off here?  Should I be looking into pam modules now?  I cannot seem to find this problem searching the web.
Thanks in advance,
Jason Greene (rb512c)
