linux sudo: no tty present and no askpass program specified

Hi

I have an Oracle DBA that is trying to install an RPM from Stratavia which is a web based portal and it executes the following:

Code:
Instance Wrapper=sudo -u oracle /opt/datapalette/jython/jython
Server Wrapper=sudo -u root /opt/datapalette/jython/jython

I've compared the /etc/sudoers file with another sudoers of a server where this was done successfully, but both file are identical wrt the oracle user

Code:
oracle ALL = NOPASSWD: DBSPI,NOPASSWD:NIMBUS
oracle ALL = NOPASSWD: DBSPI,NOPASSWD:NIMBUS,NOPASSWD:ORA10204
datapal ALL = (oracle) NOPASSWD: ALL


Please can someone help, not sure what I'm missing here?? Smilie

Thanks

What is the actual error message? (not your interpretation...)

The syntax of your sudoers does not look right to me but I may be wrong (on linux under the hand to check...) how did you edit to compare? try to use visudo to see if it complains...

Sorry the detail wasn't correct, it looks exactly like below:

Code:
oracle          ALL             = NOPASSWD:DBSPI,NOPASSWD:NIMBUS
oracle          ALL             = NOPASSWD:DBSPI,NOPASSWD:NIMBUS,NOPASSWD:ORA10204
datapal ALL             = (oracle) NOPASSWD: ALL

Thanks

Here is an answer I submitted yesterday. This is a cut&paste of that answer.
The application is different but the functions of what you are looking for are the same.
HIH


For the 'no tty present', open up your sudoers file and look for a line that says
Quote:
Defaults requiretty
Change it so the requiretty has the negate character in front. Make it look like
Quote:
Defaults !requiretty
Notice the exclamation (negate) character in front of the requiretty

I'm confused by the code you are using
ssh musedeploy@${SERVER} ${PSWD} || die "Deployment failed"That looks like you are just trying to login to $SERVER as the user musedeploy and the failure is on the passwd. Does this account execute something on login?

Your sudo entry, is that on the $SERVER or is that on the local system? If you are wanting to execute the command on $SERVER then put the entry into the sudoers on $SERVER. You may want to setup passwd-less login for ssh as well.

With the !requiretty and the sudoers entry on $SERVER you could try your command as such:

Code:
 ssh musedeploy@${SERVER} 'sudo $MUSE_CMD'

As you have NOPASSWD in the sudoers there is no need to worry about that.

The MUSE_CMD sudoers entry, is that suppose to be a single command or are they a string of separate commands? It appears you have multiple individual commands, they are not executing in succession. Is that what you are trying for?

You could also give it a tty with ssh -t, but 'no tty' usually means sudo wants to ask for a password and can't. Depriving it of even more means to ask for a password isn't going to actually let it in...
