[sudo-users] su to another user

So, add something like this - 

John ALL = (ALL) /usr/bin/su - applprod

Or get "fancy" and develop the whole string of aliases for Commands,
Users and Runas

Either way it should work -  you can also give them the NOPASSWD: option
to not require them to input a password, but those are all available
options in the FAQ that you could read about...

I need issue this command with sudo:

sudo su -applprod
Sorry, user john is not allowed to execute '/usr/bin/su -applprod' as
on solaris002.
