Sudo doesn't work


I tried to install sudo (sudo-1.8.6p3_b009.170419) on z/OS 2.3. README.ZOS tells a alot about the installation process. But nothing about the customization of /ect/sudo.conf.

When I run sudo with sample.conf delivered as sample an error occured that no was found.
If I delete or comment the both lines in sudo.conf:
Plugin sudoers_policy
Plugin sudoers_io
the execution of sudo fails with a message: unable to initialize policy plugin.

How should sudo works with only the deliverd files in package sudo-1.8.6p3_b009.170419?

Thanks for your help.

Kind regards,

Hi Björn,

Did you try to use sudo.conf instead of sample.sudo.conf which goes in archive also.
It doesn’t have links to
Plugin sudoers_policy /etc/sudoers
Plugin sudoers_io /etc/sudoers
