Hi All,

I have compiled Sudo-1.7.0rc2 on AIX 5.3 System, but don't seem to be
getting all its proper functionality as below:

1) I am getting the below error when trying to su to root using sudo as:

# su - soetest1

$ /opt/soe/local/sudo-1.7.0rc2/bin/sudo su -

3004-505 Cannot set process environment.

I have also compiled earlier version of Sudo on the same system , and am
able to run the above command successfully with that.

Please guide me with the reason behind this and its solution.

2) Also, simply putting and entry as '<username> ALL=(ALL) ALL' in the
sudoers file does not make it to prompt for a password before executing the

Whereas the password is being prompted if i add the line '<username>
ALL=PASSWD:ALL' instead of the above line.
Please guide me with this also.
