[sudo-users] Configuring LDAP-UX Cient with sudo to use with OpenLDAP server.

To configure sudoers over LDAP you will need to add a line to
/etc/nsswitch.conf such as:

sudoers: ldap

to tell sudo to use LDAP for sudoers data and the configure
/etc/ldap.conf as per the sudoers.ldap man page.  I realize that
LDAP-UX does not use /etc/ldap.conf but sudo does use this file for
its LDAP configuration.

If you are having problems, try adding the line

sudoers_debug 2

to your /etc/ldap.conf file.
