Why cant you use sudo itself ?! Its fairly an easy process.

Else you can try using set-user-id thing, which your passwd command uses.

sudo has to be installed on and confiugred .So its a pain to do on 1000 hosts. i am trying setuid thing but i am stuck on how to push it without root privileges. any idea

You can find a good explanation here ..

If you're using Solaris, Role Based Access Controls (RBAC) would work.

Of course, like sudo you will initially need root access on your clients to set it up.
