I appreciate your answer but, in fact, sam is one example of all contents... I have approximately 50 RISC servers *nix, including HP-UX, SOLARIS, AIX ,et all... Plus, we have some Linux flavors...

We wrote a Standard on which we said that the "root user must be used only in emergency; for daily job, all 
support analist must be able to manage our servers without root."

I would like to implement sudo just to make job easy and, most important, make that transparent to my analists.

Can I make some configuration to hide sudo command ?
