[sudo-users] SUSE, sudo, nfs, logfile

If I were to hazard a guess I'd say it's more to do with your nfs than sudo.  Most NFS servers disallow root to write them.  You may have to explicitly grant root write ability on your share.  It seems to me it would be more efficient to set up your logging to go to a logging server than to set up writing your logs to a mount.

I have sudo-1.6.8p11 on a SUSE 8.1 box,
I compiled to get special options, most
specifically I wanted my logfile to go to a
NFS mounted filesystem, but it will not write
any logs.  It will create the file, but no data.
I opened up permission on the file to no avail.

I re-installed with a local logfile and it will
write to the local logfile.

Any ideas on why it won't write to the NFS mount?


P.S. I do have this working on several other flavors, 
Thinking maybe something SUSE specific?
