%qaadmin SBFMSVRQA = (qaadmin) ALL, (root) /bin/su - qaadmin
Please help me understand.
There is a man page for the sudoers file that has information for you to understand this.
This allows anyone in gaadmin group on host SBFMSVRQA to su to qaadmin with the gaadmin group running as the root user to prevent asking for a password.
So it allows anyone in the group to do a su - qaadmin without getting prompted for a password as its running as the root user.
Unless I am missing something if so please someone let me know
