I am running sudo 1.8 on AIX 5.1
$ /usr/local/bin/sudo -i -u oracle 
sudo: setuid(): Operation not permitted. 

I am sure the permission of sudo and sudoers is right 
$ ls -al /usr/local/bin/sudo 
---s--x--x   2 root     system       446169 Mar 11 01:45 /usr/local/bin/sudo 
$ ls -al /etc/sudoers 
-r--r-----   1 root     system          650 Mar 22 15:25 /etc/sudoers 

But it works like 

 $ /usr/local/bin/sudo /usr/local/bin/sudo -i -u oracle 

Anyone have any suggestion and advise?
