Here is the procedure I followed to install sudo


downloaded the sudo RPM package from AIX toolbox for linux applications and tried installing, received dependency error.
sudo-1.8.27-3.aix6.1.ppc.rpm



Code:
+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
                          RPM  Error Summary:

Then i found below link to fix the dependency error
Missing ibmibmldap64.a file for AIX

installed below filesets
Code:
 idsldap.clt32bit64.rte    6.4.0.19  COMMITTED  Directory Server - 32 bit

then I was able to install sudo
Code:

geninstall -I "a -cgNQqwXY -V2 -J"  -Z   -d . -f File 2>&1

How can I fix the above error (sudo: fatal error, unable to load plugins)?

--- Post updated at 05:46 PM ---

we do not use ldap or active directory for these servers.

Code:
#rpm -qa | grep ldap
openldap-2.4.45-1.ppc
