Hi All ,
Please ignore my previous mail .
I compiled Sudo version 1.7.9 on HPUX machine , but when i tried to run below command as a sudo user it is not working properly.
Machine Details :
OS : HPUX 11.31 IA
HW : Virtual Machine
Command : shutdown -r now
The user and command both have been added in sudoers file , but still it is not able to reboot , shutdown command is working but "shutdown -r now" is not working .
I tried below mentioned scenarios but neither of them is working.
1 . Reboot on console :
When I reboot the system on the console as unprivileged user by typing:
# sudo /sbin/shutdown -r now
System is run to all stop scripts , Stopping at shell prompt and
Now I will have to switch user to root and will have to reboot again
2.Reboot shell :
Similar behavior, but:
->I loose the network connection
->If I try to logon through the console, it isn't possible anymore (this is different to the 1st scenario)
Please suggest how to proceed .. Waiting for the response.
Thanks & Regards,
