Thanks for the response. Unfortunately the '--with-pam' did not change the behavior. I put debug in the pam.conf file but it did not produce any output in /var/adm/messages.
login auth required /usr/lib/security/$ISA/pam_unix.so.1
login auth required /usr/lib/security/$ISA/pam_dial_auth.so.1
rlogin auth sufficient /usr/lib/security/$ISA/pam_rhosts_auth.so.1
rlogin auth required /usr/lib/security/$ISA/pam_unix.so.1
dtlogin auth required /usr/lib/security/$ISA/pam_unix.so.1
rsh auth required /usr/lib/security/$ISA/pam_rhosts_auth.so.1
other auth required /usr/lib/security/$ISA/pam_unix.so.1 debug
Any other thoughts???

Try compiling using '--with-pam'. This tells sudo to invoke the default system behavior. (Which by default on Solaris 8 if you don't modify /etc/pam.conf tells it to call pam_unix.so.1 which tells it to act like /bin/login, /bin/su, etc.) BTW on any
Solaris you should not need to modify /etc/pam.conf unless you want to change the way the system behaves. (regardless of nsswitch.conf or compat mode)
That should do the trick.
