    Hi,

    I am logged in through “ec2-user”, but I had to login as root for many purposes, so I gave root rights to the ec2-user by adding ec2-user ALL=(ALL)ALL and now when I do sudo su it asks for password which it never asked for before and which I never had set! Please let me know what can be done. Thanks

    Hi Sushma,

    I removed your post from the Ambari forum as this is not an Ambari issue.

    Thanks

    Hi Sushma,

    root is a UNIX system “super user”. As this is your server, then you should know the password. Otherwise you should contact your system administrator.

    Thanks

    Dave
