Issue/Problem/Symptoms: 

We've installed PIM 12.8+ on Linux/Unix when administrators try to issue "sesu -" to switch to root, an error is returned:

"Privileged ENTM User (root) is denied access by ENTM - sesu denied!."

All of our current policies and rules should allow this user sesu access. 

Environment:  

Linux and Unix 12.8 PIM Endpoints

Workaround:

The best workaround is to disable the Terminal Integration feature in seos.ini if you are not using it. It's under PUPMAgent section in the token EnableLogonIntegration token which needs to be set to 0 (zero). You can do this via a policy with command: env config;er CONFIG seos.ini section(PUPMAgent) token(EnableLogonIntegration) value(0)
