Operations Manager and sudo – not found? (#SCOM, #UNIX)

During a recent Operations Manager Unix/Linux agent deployment we were experiencing failures when deploying the agent because sudo could not be found. The details are shown below:


Failed during SSH discovery. Exit code: 127

Standard Output: Sudo path: /user/bin/

Standard Error: ksh[11]:/usr/bin/sudo: not found.


Resolution: On the systems experiencing the issue add a symbolic link from /user/bin/sudo to the correct location. This was already documented but it wasn’t easy to find find so the link to this and other release notes for Operations Manager 2012 are available at: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj656656.aspx
