Carlos E. R. said the following on 10/24/2012 07:39 AM:

I think there is another method that the user has to belong to a
certain group to be able to su to root. Wheel or root group, perhaps.

Carlos has a point here.

SU and SUDO are differnt.

If the problem is with SU and not SUDO then the issue may be in how PAM
is configured.

see 'man pam wheel'
and have a look at the contents of /etc/pam.d/su
You should see lines like

auth sufficient pam_rootok.so
# Uncomment the following line to implicitly trust users in the "wheel"
group.
#auth sufficient pam_wheel.so trust use_uid
# Uncomment the following line to require a user to be in the "wheel" group.
#auth required pam_wheel.so use_uid

The 'wheel group' is an old UNIX concept:
