Help required to setup sudoers file


Hi,

This is my scenario -
There're 7 users who should be able to bring up and bring down the application. The users will basically login with their user IDs, su to a common account and execute the startup/shutdown commands from there. They should not be prompted for the password.

I'm having trouble carrying this out. Whatever I've tried, I'm being prompted to enter the password.

Code:
user_login host_name = (as_user) NOPASSWD: commands
or
Code:
%group_name host_name = (as_user) NOPASSWD: commands
e.g
Code:
%adm ALL = (ALL) NOPASSWD: /sbin/shutdown -h now, reboot

This is my sudoers file:

Code:
User_Alias      B24GRP = b24adm
B24GRP  ALL = (b24prd) NOPASSWD : ALL
Is it wrong?

The sudoers file was fine. The issue was due to the way 'sudo' was used in the script.

sudoers file now is,
Code:
b24adm  ALL = (b24prd) NOPASSWD : ALL
Earlier, my script was:
Code:
su - b24prd <<EOF
. /<command1>
. /<command2>
. /<command3>
EOF
In the above, the script used to halt and prompt me for the password for b24prd.

Now, I've included the commands in a separate command.ksh file and use sudo in the script as:
Code:
sudo -u b24prd -i command.ksh
