Thank You for responding.
I installed and built every version on the sudo site but when I did a `sudo -V` is showed
Authentication methods: 'pam'
My 1.6.9p23 build shows
Authentication methods: 'aixauth'
This is the only one I could build that would work with LDAP.
I am using these LDAP libraries:
/opt/IBM/ldap/V6.3 I am not sure if they are OpenLDAP or Tivoli.
Here is my configure line:
./configure --prefix=/opt/freeware --mandir /opt/freeware/man --with-logging=syslog --withlogfac=auth --with-editor=/usr/bin/vi --with-env-editor --enable-zlib=builtin --disable-nls --with-sendmail=/usr/sbin/sendmail --with-ldap=/opt/IBM/ldap/V6.3 --with-incpath=/opt/IBM/ldap/V6.3/include --with-libpath=/opt/IBM/ldap/V6.3/lib --with-ldap-conf-file=/etc/ldap.conf
Build + Install:
make && make PPFLAGS="" PPVARS="flavor=ldap" && make install
I got these lines from one of the AIX posts on the mailing list.
