How to manage Esxi 4.1 using domain /local user with permission slimier to root for ssh access and commands

Although I raised other questions for same topic ..but no satisfactory answer as of now

This query is only for ESXI normal local user or domain user [Member of ESX Admins Group of AD Domain] is not able to run any command

Would need expert advise to get this issue fixed   only in Esxi 4.1

Use the root user account, you will not find an acceptable answer, as to using the root account, or an account with the same privileges as root.

We are able to use other ids in 3.5 and in 5.x  which can be used to run command with help of sudo or without sudo as well for all domain ids  belong to ESx Admins group

but here in 4.1..not able to run any command ?

If the configuration which you have for the End of Life product, does not meet your requirements, I would contact VMware Support, if they will honour it.

What you seek is probably out of the design specification for ESXi 4.1. e.g. it's not possible, it's not completely Unix or Linux.
