Yes, I implemented in Policy -> Sudo -> Sudo Commands as:
Sudo Command:              NOPASSWD: /sbin/vgs

The script (executed by a non-root, administrative group user on an enrolled 
host) specifies:
hostname >> statresults.txt
cat /etc/redhat-release >> statresults.txt
uname -r >> statresults.txt
printf "\n " >> statresults.txt
sudo vgs >> statresults.txt
Running the script I still was prompted for a password.

In the sssd.conf file on the enrolled host I found an invalid pointer to 
“ipa_server=”  directive which I corrected and added sudo to the “services=” 
directive.  One or both of those changes corrected the situation and vgs runs 
under sudo without a password prompt.

Subject: Re: [Freeipa-users] sudo NOPASSWD for a single command

We have a script stored on a particular server in our realm that executes a 
number of non-privileged commands and are wanting to add /sbin/vgs command. The 
script uses SSH to then execute the same set of commands on all the servers in 
the realm.
The owner of the script is in the administrator group and there are sudoer 
commands for the administrator group in general.  We need to place a rule for 
this one command for either this group or the script owner to run NOPASSWD.
Where and how would I specify that in the IPA admin console?
Have you tried creating your command in IPA as "NOPASSWD: /sbin/vgs" (Policy -> 
Sudo -> Sudo Commands)?
