We have multiple Linux servers that authenticate to an Active Directory Domain. For a group in AD, I want to add a list of commands that are allowed to run as root using sudo. I can obviously ssh-in to each computer and update sudoers file -but that will take some time. Also, root login is not allowed. So, password less logins will only work for non-root users.
Is there a quick way to update the sudoers file for each Linux computer at once? I am thinking of a Perl or Python script with some system administration abilities here.
Update: Thanks veroteq7 and Shane Madden. I had thought about deploying cfengine at one point- but we don't have it running currently. We have decided that using LDAP would be the best solution. I am getting an error importing the LDIF schema schema.ActiveDirectory for sudo. The error is "parameter is not correct" on line 144.
This is the content from line 144 onwards:

The command that I used is:

Update2: I created a new question. Thanks everybody for suggestions.
