How to run root privileged Linux command as normal user via shell shell


Hi All,
I want to run root privileged Linux command through shell script as normal user say tomcat. I used sudo option. But it prompts the user's
(tomcat) password.

Is there any way to do this without typing user's password

Regards,
Thamizhannal P

Yes. If you configure sudo correctly then you can run commands without being prompted for a password. There's another thread on linuxquestions which runs through this -> http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...r-sudo-442808/
