I have sudo installed on a lot of computer, and I give sudo access to
My sudoers file looks like :
user1 host1 = ALL
user2 host2 = ALL
user3 host3 = ALL
and I dispatch it with a rdist-like command.
but on some host, entering the hostname does not work, and I always
get the message :
user1 is not allowed to run sudo on localhost. This incident will be reported.
it works only with :
user1 localhost = ALL
I don't know why. The network parameters are correct. And of course I
must use the hostname, because not every people must access on very
hosts. I seems that 'sudo' identify the local host only as
'localhost', and not with its real-life hostname. The real hostname is
given in both /etc/hostname and in /etc/hosts.
I use sudo 1.6.8p5-1 on Debian Sarge.
any help is welcome...
