Does Quest maintain a sudo package?
Quest Software no longer maintains recent releases of sudo. To obtain the latest stable release of the Sudo packages please go to:
* The functionality that was provided by Quest Software's Sudo packages has now been included in the sudo_vas plugin available in QAS 4.0.3 and 4.1. This new plugin works with Sudo 1.8 and up. With the introduction of sudo plugins in Sudo 1.8, all of the functionality that was being provided by Quest Software's sudo packages has now been added to the vas_sudo plugin. This plugin is provided as part of the QAS 4.0.3 and 4.1 release and is compatible with Sudo 1.8 and up.
Sudo 1.8 on AIX 6 needs an extra step to enable PAM support on the system. Please see this document for additional informaiton concerning what's new in Sudo 1.8.
Since the 'sudoers.so' library contains the pam support it needs to be plugged in using hte /etc/sudo.conf file. If this file does not exist please create it with the following lines.
# cat /etc/sudo.conf
Plugin sudoers_policy sudoers.so
Plugin sudoers_io /usr/local/libexec/sudoers.so
This assumes a default location for sudoers.so of /usr/local/libexec/
