How do I grant su to root for a normal user and also sudo access

I need to grant su access to root for a user named 'oracle' on solaris 8. Can anyone help me with it?

Also how do I grant sudo access to root for another user?


Thanks
Bill

Have you tried to su from your oracle account? You really shouldn't have to do anything.

Log in as oracle and simply type su. then enter the root pasword. Has this not worked?

Have you installed sudo? Check the sudo page for more information on downloading and setup.
