Hello Experts

Logged in as user1, I am running a command:
sudo xyz.sh
it asks me for the root password which I input; but it tells me that the passwd is incorrect.
Yet, if I am able to log in as root using the same passwd.

Why doesn't it let me use the 'sudo' command as user1?

Please help I am in the middle of an oracle install...

thx
