I have setup a sudoers as such:
User_Alias HELPDESK=joe
Cmnd_Alias HEL_CMD=/usr/bin/passwd [A-z]*, !/usr/bin/passwd root,
!/usr/bin/passwd -* root

Yet when I try to change another users' passwd as joe, it asks me for
that user's passwd!
joe at server $ sudo passwd tom
Enter tom's password:
This is an LDAP enabled system...
