i need to setup sudo so that user1 can issue a command as user2 without entering a password. i tried the following entry in the sudoers file:

user1    ALL=(user2)  NOPASSWD: /bin/kill

but when logged in as user1 and execute the command

sudo -u user2 -i /bin/kill -15 3948

i get prompted for the password. why does this not work or what do i need to do to make it work.
