   Thanks Todd, checked the system and selinux is disabled. But I did a
comparison of sudo -V between the problem system and an operational system
running the same version of sudo.
one being RHEL 5.5 and the other 5.6. The problem system has duel ethernet
cards connected to different networks. Could it be that Sudo does not know
which network to find the pam
authentication server?? Only one connection has access to the
authentication server.

Have you checked the logs (or dmesg) for anything that could be
relevant?  If you have SELinux in enforcing mode you may need to
run (as root) "restorecon /usr/bin/sudo".
