Thanks Todd for the reply. I believe before command will upgrade the old sudo, though it is "swinstall" or for upgrade any specific option we need to use.

Swinstall -s /depot-location-for-new-sudo

Thank you.

The version of sudo you are running is almost 5 years old so I would recommend upgrading to the latest.  Upgrading the sudo package will not alter your existing sudoers configuration file.

I don't recognize the specific problem you are having, but if the problem persists with the latest version of sudo it will be easier to debug.
