Issue/Introduction

when we run the dr_validate as sudo, it fails with this error: Please add 'root ALL=(ALL) ALL' to /etc/sudoers file. ..........[FAIL]

Cause

the dr_install script will pass commands that would require a password if the ALL=(ALL) is not used, so dr_validate fails.

Environment

CAPM 3.x

Resolution

 Here is what we actually have in the sudeors file: root ALL=NOPASSWD: ALL
change this to root ALL=(ALL) ALL
You can change it back after the upgrade.
