Hi sudoers:

I have the same problem as this individual:


I'm on RedHat Enterprise Linux 5.3 and so I have sudo-1.6.9p17-3.el5

I want to give myself the permission to run anything matching /etc/init.d/tomcat5-sb* without a password, so I have

% sudo -l
User jdunn may run the following commands on this host:
    (ALL) ALL
    (root) NOPASSWD: /usr/bin/install, /etc/init.d/tomcat5-sb*, /etc/init.d/cbcsandboxes
    (root) /etc/init.d/tomcat5-sb20
    (cruise) /usr/bin/cvs
    (webmaster) ALL

However, I still keep getting prompted for a password when executing anything of /etc/init.d/tomcat5-*
