Description Steven Dake 2010-06-23 17:54:23 UTC
Description of problem:
the cluster package owns the directory /var/log/cluster.  In some cases, corosync is installed alone with no cluster package (qpid use case).  In this situation, it is not possible for corosync to log to a file.

I propose having corosync own /var/log/cluster directory.  cluster always depends on corosync, so the directory will always be present once cman installs.

Without this change it is not possible to have corosync log to a file with selinux enabled.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
cluster 3.0.12-6

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. run corosync (without cluster installed)
2. try to have it log to a file
3. permission denied
  
Actual results:
permission denied

Expected results:
should log to file
