I have Sudo installed on AIX and Solaris systems and it is very easy to install. If you are running Solaris, you can add it by pkgadd, go to and get it as a package.
You can customize the variables by editing /usr/local/etc/sudoers file. This file has examples in it. Sudo comes with it's editor tool called /usr/local/sbin/visudo.

You can find more info at

It is a very good tool when you need to restrict access and allow operators or users to use system level commands.
