Suppressing Last Login on HP UX for SUDO command and Specific User

I am attempting to suppress Last Login information being displayed for a specific user when sudo'ing a command.

I have set the attribut "DISPLAY_LAST_LOGIN" to equal 0 for that user in the userdb, however it is still showing the Last Login information.

Our OS is HP UX, realease B.11.31.

root myserver as livehost:/usr/users/myuser/scripts/test $ userdbget -u myuser

Open in new window

What am I missing?

I've tried this but that didn't work.

I got over this by added an exception for root:-

/usr/sbin/userdbset -u root DISPLAY_LAST_LOGIN=0

Not ideal, but no other option I can see, unless anyone else has a better solution?

Most probably you need to preserve the environment variable, most environment variables are stripped from the environment by sudo.
you need to check the sudoers file on this setting (or just set the variable there...).

I have no HP-UX to test with so sorry.  You can close by accepting your own answer as solution if you like.
