Since upgrading to sudo-1.7.0 and turning on LDAP ( I don¹t think this point
is relevant since it is a local user) it appears the users environment
variables are not being honored.

I was reading the man pages and using google but I need some help. I am
running sudo-1.7.0 on HPUX 11.11

I modified the /etc/sudoers to look like:


However, this is not working.

When I run sudo -E I receive the following error:

sudo: sorry, you are not allowed to preserve the environment

I believe I need to change something in the above line in /etc/sudoers.

Thank you for your help.
