    Hi guys, we used BRU PE briefly in 2012 right before we switched to LTFS and I just had a request for archival footage that we had backed up in that environment. I’ve still got a workstation connected to an LTO-5 tape drive for just this purpose and it has been working up until now. I’m getting this error message when I try to restore the files:

    >>> /private/etc/sudoers.d/BRUExemptions: Alias “BRU_CMDS” already defined near line 2 <<<

    sudo: parse error in /private/etc/sudoers.d/BRUExemptions near line 2

    sudo: no valid sudoers sources found, quitting

    sudo: unable to initialize policy plugin


    Anyone got any ideas?

    Thanks,

    Kevin

    Which version of Bru and which version of MacOS are you on?

    Hi Neil,

    BRU PE 3.2.6 80 and MacOS 10.13.6

    Thanks.

    There are two possible causes for this:

    A doubling of the inclusion of the sudoers.d folder –

    1. Open a Terminal
    2. Execute:sudo -s
      visudo
    3. Using the arrow/cursor keys, scroll to the bottom of the file
    4. With the cursor position on the line that reads #includedir /etc/sudoers.d type “dd” (two d’s)
    5. That line will disappear
    6. To save the file and exit the editor type “:wq” and hit enter

    The second is because the BRU_CMDS entry has been added multiple times to the /etc/sudoers file directly –

    1. Open a Terminal
    2. Execute:sudo -s
      visudo
    3. Using the arrow/cursor keys, scroll to the bottom of the file
    4. Find a line that reads:
      Cmnd_Alias BRU_CMDS =
    5. You should see 1 or more duplicates of that line
    6. Using “dd” as above, delete all but one of the entries
    7. To save the file and exit the editor type “:wq” and hit enter

    Thanks Tim. When I enter “sudo -s” I get this in return:

    Echo:~ echo$ sudo -s

    >>> /private/etc/sudoers.d/BRUExemptions: Alias “BRU_CMDS” already defined near line 2 <<<

    sudo: parse error in /private/etc/sudoers.d/BRUExemptions near line 2

    sudo: no valid sudoers sources found, quitting

    sudo: unable to initialize policy plugin

    Echo:~ echo$ visudo

    visudo: /etc/sudoers: Permission denied

    One other thought. Does BRU PE 3.2.6 Build 80 support APFS?

    Thanks for your help.

    Kevin
