Re: [Pulp-list] Does pulp tools have to be run as root?

Right now I have to run pulp tools as root because the log file writes
to /var/log/pulp/pulptools.log, which only root has permission to.

- - Is there another reason we'd *have* to run as root outside of this? If
not, I'd like to find a workaround so I can run as any user. Seems like
logging shouldn't be a reason to force us into running as root.

Yes.
The user must be root because many of the CLI commands write to root protected (owned) files and directories such as /etc/pulp/consumer and /etc/yum.repos.d/pulp.repo.


- - This is causing a problem with the repo sync schedule implementation,
which uses pulp tools to do the sync. It's crashing because the apache
user can't write to the log file.

Repo sync is a server side thing. Wonder why this functionality is in pulptools. Can this be moved?


Assuming we can fix the first point, the second becomes a non-issue. I'm
not sure of the cleanest solution (in nimbus tools, I write the log to
/tmp if the user doesn't have access to /var/log), but someone else
might have a more standard approach.

Interesting solution. I'm not opposed but seems odd that admins would have to look in two places for the log when trying to debug.
