In both cases the user account was set to NOPASSWD. Actually, on my home system it was my nightly backupscript I run from my crontab.There are certainly some easy workarounds, such as running these scripts from root's cron (cron.daily, cron.weekly, ...), or writingmy own sudo command (which I've done before Sudo arrived).Is there now a setting where I can run sudo non-interactively, or isthis a new security restriction.It is, as mentioned in /etc/sudoers: # # Disable "ssh hostname sudo <cmd>", because it will show the password # in clear. # You have to run "ssh -t hostname sudo <cmd>". # Defaults requiretty I don't know if there's a good way to run things via cron and convince sudo that you have a tty. If not, you might just comment out the requiretty setting.
