I need to give access to one of our DBA's to run chfs inside smitty so he 
can add space to his file system.
I want to remove his root access later, but for now, I want to set it up 
so he can run chfs using smitty, get him used to using it and then yank 
his root access. What is the best way to set this up using the sudoers 

ABC03537        ALL = (root) NOPASSWD: /usr/bin/su - root       (but some 
how add------- /usr/sbin/chfs)
