    Default permission denied problems in SLES 11 -- Pls help!!

    Hi,

    I have modified /etc/sudoers using visudo command to give the user "runner" to give all access without password.

    capture of sudoers file

    # User privilege specification
    root ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: ALL
    runner ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: ALL

    But still the "runner" is getting permission denied error when trying to open files with "(-rw-------)" permissions.

    Am I missing anything?

    this is the complete sudoers file
    # sudoers file.
    #
    # This file MUST be edited with the 'visudo' command as root.
    # Failure to use 'visudo' may result in syntax or file permission errors
    # that prevent sudo from running.
    #
    # See the sudoers man page for the details on how to write a sudoers file.

    if i use "vi xyz.txt" -- i am getting permission denied.
    If i use "sudo vi xyz.txt" -- im not getting any error -- no prompt for passwd also

    But our requirement is to use without prefixing "sudo"
