Sudo not working on LDAP client machine


I have configured ldap manually on solaris 10/11 machine with below entries:
# ldapclient list |grep sudo
NS_LDAP_SERVICE_SEARCH_DESC= sudoers:ou=SUDOers,dc=exm,dc=ple,dc=com
# cat /etc/nsswitch.conf |grep -i sudo
sudoers:        files ldap

But groups available in LDAP server sudoers are not able to login to the client machine(Sudo is not taking from LDAP server). Could anyone help on this?

Thanks in advance!

Where, precisely, is your sudoers file?

Why this capitalization?

Can you clarify what Solaris release you are using (cat /etc/release), tell where did you get the sudo command and also post the output of "sudo -V" ?

Hello Jim,

sudoers file path : /etc/sudoers on the client machine.
The capitalization is because: on LDAP we defined the sudoers OU as : SUDOers which is why we mentioned the same in the client machine as well.

Hello Jlliagre,

I have attached the release and sud -V details.

Also please find the sudo -l output from solaris 10 machine:

Ok, so you have both Solaris 10 and Solaris 11 machines. Is the issue present on both or only the Solaris 10 ones?
