I have encountered a problem with sudo 1.6.8p7 running on HP-UX 11i 
(11.11) with trusted security enabled.  When the system is in trusted mode 
and i sudo a command, sudo asks for the password of the user.  When the 
password is entered it is not accepted and asks to retry. After 3 retry's 
it fails.  I know that the password is correct.  when I revert the system 
back to /etc/passwd security.  sudo accepts the user password and allows 
me to run the command.

I have obtained my copy of sudo from


Does sudo support HP's trusted security model?

Has anyone ran into this problem before?

please e-mail me back @ paul.ostrowski at hartfordlife.com

Any input is appreciated.
