sudo: 3 incorrect password attempts

by ravi   Last Updated April 16, 2018 07:02 AM

Can anyone suggest how I can avoid this situation? It never asks for password but still complains the password is wrong.

sudo su -
Sorry, try again.

sudoers file entry :

# Allow members of group sudo to execute any command
%sudo   ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL
%domain\\my_engineering ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL

Thank you.
