I have a server where my user is able to sudo to the root user without a password, and then the root user can sudo to a third user without a password. However, my user cannot sudo directly to the third user without a password.
Ansible's become directive uses sudo in the traditional manner, i.e. the one that requires prompting for my password.
I've tried putting
become_user: root on a block and
become_user: <other-user> on a task inside that block, but it appears Ansible overrides the block's definition, rather than nesting the sudo calls as I hoped.
Note: this question has also been asked on StackOverflow, but since there's no solution I figured I would repost it here, which I think is the better site for it.
my user cannot sudo directly to the third user without a password - is that under ansible or directly in the shell?
@DanCornilescu In general as per sudoers configuration.
sudo "sudo -u target\_user command" as command ?
@Xiong Chiamiov, did you find a workaround that worked for you ? I have the exact same problem :(
