I have an account named test. I can run commands with it account test preceded with Sudo keyword.

I thought since I can do that means test account is a member of Sudoers, so I checked the file Sudoer under /etc directory, but cannot see test there.

Any idea ?

Thanks

Try this:

sudo -l

- it should list what you can do with sudo as user 'test'.

It is possible that it is specified as group. Check the group that test (id test) belong to and verify entries beginning with %.

For instance -
# %users  ALL=/sbin/mount /mnt/cdrom, /sbin/umount /mnt/cdrom

Open in new window

sudo -l and all those commands which has below permissions you can run

-rws-r-xr-x

Set UID will allow you to run the command as per your account type/UID.
