I have a solaris 9 server running sudo.1.7.1 and it seems to be working fine except for one problem.


In my sudoers file I have a command set up to run as root user, this works fine, eg:-


sudo <command>


However if I run the following I see the warning sudo screen and am asked for a password:-


sudo -i <command>


Can anyone shed any light on this please?


I'm fairly sure that it's the solaris 9 environment as solaris 8/10 work fine with "sudo -i".


Hope you can help.
