How to setup super user on AIX? User cannot kill other users processes...

Hello, I need to setup a super user on AIX 5.3. We are using a third party application that uses the AIX as a back office. The application uses lots of shell commands e.g. I can Administer users; Terminate, kill, snoop etc.

Now I have a problem with the kill command.
I have setup a user on AIX as an admin user but it looks like the user cannot kill other users processes..

The kill -9 returns error number 2.

Can you advise on what I have missed?

To do any changes on AIX I can use only ssh and vi. so I need some more detail instructions.

I will appreciate your help in this matter.
Thank you in advance.
