Oracle Linux: Sudo Taking Long Time to Authenticate Caused by Misconfiguration of rsyslog Service
Last updated on MAY 30, 2018
Applies to:Linux OS - Version Oracle Linux 6.0 and later
Sudo is taking long time to authenticate, usually it would take less than 15 seconds but in this scenario it was taking more than 5mins and works fine after restart of rsyslog daemon.
A new configuration was added to rsyslog, no changes at sudoers file.
