cuteadm         ALL=(ALL)       NOPASSWD: /usr/sbin/iptrace, /usr/bin/startsrc, /usr/bin/stopsrc

I know only rpm fileset, which can be downloaded here: http://www-03.ibm.com/systems/power/software/aix/linux/toolbox/date.html

I'm not familiar with this PAM and LAM, but probably this will help: http://www.feep.net/PAM/AIX/

I am having an problem while running a script which requires su -

The command that I need to run is -
echo -e "* ACL_type NFS4\n s:(EVERYONE@): a rwpRWxDaAdcCos\n s:(OWNER@): a rwpRWxDaAdcCos\n s:(GROUP@): a rwpRWxDaAdcCos"|aclput /mount_ACL_233

Now from root, the command is running fine on one of the NFS export which is connected to the AIX client, but the problem comes when i want to run this command from one particular user -

bash-4.2# su - user_g -c "echo -e "* ACL_type NFS4\n s:(EVERYONE@): a rwpRWxDaAdcCos\n s:(OWNER@): a rwpRWxDaAdcCos\n s:(GROUP@): a rwpRWxDaAdcCos"|aclput /mount_ACL_233"
bash: syntax error near unexpected token `('

user_g is an user who has sufficient ACL rights to change the ACL of the mountpoint there. There is no other error/problem from me related to permission of the user. Just I am unable to get how to get the actual error-free single command line for this?

I have tried it with that user only and it passed. But I want to run the whole command in single line. Can anyone help?

Hi, I think problem is with the placing of the character: ". In the manual of the command 'su', there is an example:

To run the backup command with root user authority and then return to your original shell, enter:
su root "-c /usr/sbin/backup -9 -u"

In this example the " character is starting before the -c parameter. It looks strange, but using it this way works for me.
