What is the correct syntax in /etc/sudoers for running "sudo -i -u userB
/path_to_scriptB" as userA without providing a password ?

I can get this to work but I am always prompted for userB's password,
which is kind of inconvenient.

I would like to avoid  using "sudo su - userB -c /path_to_scriptB"  if

Env: sudo 1.7.2p1 on solaris 9
