The file /etc/sudoers lists users authorized to run certain commands as other users. Edit this file if necessary with the visudo command.

The following is correct as of 8.5:

# grep zimbra /etc/sudoers
%zimbra ALL=NOPASSWD:/opt/zimbra/libexec/zmstat-fd *
%zimbra ALL=NOPASSWD:/opt/zimbra/libexec/zmslapd
%zimbra ALL=NOPASSWD:/opt/zimbra/postfix/sbin/postfix, /opt/zimbra/postfix/sbin/postalias, /opt/zimbra/postfix/sbin/qshape.pl, /opt/zimbra/postfix/sbin/postconf,/opt/zimbra/postfix/sbin/postsuper
%zimbra ALL=NOPASSWD:/opt/zimbra/libexec/zmqstat,/opt/zimbra/libexec/zmmtastatus
%zimbra ALL=NOPASSWD:/opt/zimbra/amavisd/sbin/amavis-mc
%zimbra ALL=NOPASSWD:/opt/zimbra/libexec/zmmailboxdmgr
%zimbra ALL=NOPASSWD:/opt/zimbra/bin/zmcertmgr

The following is correct as of 5.0.18:

# grep zimbra /etc/sudoers
%zimbra ALL=NOPASSWD:/opt/zimbra/openldap/libexec/slapd
%zimbra ALL=NOPASSWD:/opt/zimbra/libexec/zmslapd
%zimbra ALL=NOPASSWD:/opt/zimbra/postfix/sbin/postfix, /opt/zimbra/postfix/sbin/postalias, /opt/zimbra/postfix/sbin/qshape.pl, /opt/zimbra/postfix/sbin/postconf,/opt/zimbra/postfix/sbin/postsuper
%zimbra ALL=NOPASSWD:/opt/zimbra/libexec/zmqstat,/opt/zimbra/libexec/zmmtastatus
%zimbra ALL=NOPASSWD:/opt/zimbra/libexec/zmmailboxdmgr
%zimbra ALL=NOPASSWD:/opt/zimbra/bin/zmvertmgr

Please also note it is advisable to check if the requiretty option is set. This is done as follows

# grep requiretty /etc/sudoers
Defaults    requiretty

Using the visudo command comment it out like so. Please note the first # indicates root prompt, the second line # indicates the comment

# visudo
#Defaults    requiretty 

The requiretty line, on a Fedora Core system is around line 56. This may vary on other linux or Mac systems.


On SUSE10SP1 Enterprise Server with 5.0.1 when you get '/etc/sudoers' is 0640 needs to be 0440 and ldap fails to init.

Open /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmsetup.pl in your favorite text editor:
Goto Line: 56 (in 5.0.1)
Find 0640 change to 0440 and save.

/etc/sudoers needs to be 0440 or it will not complete the requested command. Re-run /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmsetup.pl if you got an error before and all should be good. check the above too.
