Description Ken Ganong 2006-12-12 10:30:22 EST
On RHEL 5, /etc/sudoers comes with the line:
Default    requiretty

We need to comment this out during an install so that the satellite can restart
itself and its monitoring services.

Reassigning a bunch of my bugs to mmccune so they aren't forgotten.

Comment 3 Preethi Thomas 2009-03-09 10:46:28 EDT
has this been implemented?
Default    requiretty is not commented my rhel5 satellite 5.3 /etc/sudoers
Comment 4 Mike McCune 2009-04-02 23:01:52 EDT
You can close this out we have:

# These two directives allow tomcat and apache to invoke CONFIG_RHN
# commands via sudo even without a real tty
Defaults:tomcat !requiretty
Defaults:apache !requiretty

in /etc/sudoers that is added by the installer.

This must have been solved during Satellite 5.2.0 by some other bug or the RHEL 5 feature itself.

closing as per  the comment above
