  • 1.  Problem using a "sudoer" on AIM for Solaris

    Posted Oct 28, 2014 04:03 PM

    Hi group!


    I'm trying to configure the AIM for Solaris Zones to populate data from a Solaris Global Zone.


    When I use the user ROOT, the SystemEDGE AIM gets information with success.


    But when I try to use a "sudoer" user, I can't.


    The bookshelf recommends to use the following sintaxe:



    For example, I tried to use this sintaxe on user field:



    If I use only CAUSER, the VAIM accept this user during the authentication but can't to do the pool because I have to inform that this is a "sudoer".


    What is wrong in my user sintaxe?

    The syntax looks oke to me , please check the following


    The sudo parameter will raise the shells security level. It works best if this user was added to the sudoers file

    with NOPASSWD, so the shell channel doesn't needo to provide a password when running sudo.

    If a password is prompted during sudo, it will use the password in either the password field or,

    as an addtional parameter of the username URI field &password=<ZoneUserPassword>

    The prompt for this user should be a #, for both the login user, and the user after sudo is performed.

    The default Shell for the sudo parameter is /bin/bash.

    You may use another optional shell by specifying the

    following option to the sudo parameter.


    Valid shells are

    Hi Dirk,


    But I needed to grant permission to run /usr/sbin/pooladm command.

    After that I could add the global using only username on user field.

    Thank you again.
