Full Discussion: Sudo error on AIX 7.1
Operating Systems AIX Sudo error on AIX 7.1 Post 303041516 by RecoveryOne on Tuesday 26th of November 2019 02:56:23 PM
Not sure if applicable to you, but when I've had to install sudo on AIX I pull the packages directly from Todd's website:
Download Sudo


I've had so many issues with the toolkit that some packages are just better to install one off.



I will state, that if you obligations is to use sudo with One Identity, the files from sudo.ws will work.

VISUDO(8)						    BSD System Manager's Manual 						 VISUDO(8)

NAME
visudo -- edit the sudoers file SYNOPSIS
visudo [-chqsV] [-f sudoers] DESCRIPTION
visudo edits the sudoers file in a safe fashion, analogous to vipw(8). visudo locks the sudoers file against multiple simultaneous edits, provides basic sanity checks, and checks for parse errors. If the sudoers file is currently being edited you will receive a message to try again later. There is a hard-coded list of one or more editors that visudo will use set at compile-time that may be overridden via the editor sudoers Default variable. This list defaults to /usr/local/bin/vi. Normally, visudo does not honor the VISUAL or EDITOR environment variables unless they contain an editor in the aforementioned editors list. However, if visudo is configured with the --with-env-editor option or the env_editor Default variable is set in sudoers, visudo will use any the editor defines by VISUAL or EDITOR. Note that this can be a security hole since it allows the user to execute any program they wish simply by setting VISUAL or EDITOR. visudo parses the sudoers file after the edit and will not save the changes if there is a syntax error. Upon finding an error, visudo will print a message stating the line number(s) where the error occurred and the user will receive the ``What now?'' prompt. At this point the user may enter 'e' to re-edit the sudoers file, 'x' to exit without saving the changes, or 'Q' to quit and save changes. The 'Q' option should be used with extreme care because if visudo believes there to be a parse error, so will sudo and no one will be able to sudo again until the error is fixed. If 'e' is typed to edit the sudoers file after a parse error has been detected, the cursor will be placed on the line where the error occurred (if the editor supports this feature). The options are as follows: -c Enable check-only mode. The existing sudoers file will be checked for syntax errors, owner and mode. A message will be printed to the standard output describing the status of sudoers unless the -q option was specified. If the check completes successfully, visudo will exit with a value of 0. If an error is encountered, visudo will exit with a value of 1. -f sudoers Specify and alternate sudoers file location. With this option visudo will edit (or check) the sudoers file of your choice, instead of the default, /etc/sudoers. The lock file used is the specified sudoers file with ``.tmp'' appended to it. In check-only mode only, the argument to -f may be '-', indicating that sudoers will be read from the standard input. -h The -h (help) option causes visudo to print a short help message to the standard output and exit. -q Enable quiet mode. In this mode details about syntax errors are not printed. This option is only useful when combined with the -c option. -s Enable strict checking of the sudoers file. If an alias is used before it is defined, visudo will consider this a parse error. Note that it is not possible to differentiate between an alias and a host name or user name that consists solely of uppercase letters, digits, and the underscore ('_') character. -V The -V (version) option causes visudo to print its version number and exit. ENVIRONMENT
The following environment variables may be consulted depending on the value of the editor and env_editor sudoers settings: VISUAL Invoked by visudo as the editor to use EDITOR Used by visudo if VISUAL is not set FILES
/etc/sudoers List of who can run what /etc/sudoers.tmp Lock file for visudo DIAGNOSTICS
sudoers file busy, try again later. Someone else is currently editing the sudoers file. /etc/sudoers.tmp: Permission denied You didn't run visudo as root. Can't find you in the passwd database Your user ID does not appear in the system passwd file. Warning: {User,Runas,Host,Cmnd}_Alias referenced but not defined Either you are trying to use an undeclared {User,Runas,Host,Cmnd}_Alias or you have a user or host name listed that consists solely of uppercase letters, digits, and the underscore ('_') character. In the latter case, you can ignore the warnings (sudo will not complain). In -s (strict) mode these are errors, not warnings. Warning: unused {User,Runas,Host,Cmnd}_Alias The specified {User,Runas,Host,Cmnd}_Alias was defined but never used. You may wish to comment out or remove the unused alias. In -s (strict) mode this is an error, not a warning. Warning: cycle in {User,Runas,Host,Cmnd}_Alias The specified {User,Runas,Host,Cmnd}_Alias includes a reference to itself, either directly or through an alias it includes. This is only a warning by default as sudo will ignore cycles when parsing the sudoers file. SEE ALSO
