Description Jan Hutař 2013-09-16 06:15:39 EDT
Description of problem:
In the documentation we advise to create /home/swreport/.ssh and /home/swreport/.ssh/authorized_keys, but when blindly following the guide, you end up with /home/swreport/.ssh owned by root and not swreport user.

Expected results:
IMO into the step 7, something like this should be appended:

# chown -R swreport:swreport /home/swreport/.ssh
Comment 3 Clifford Perry 2013-10-11 08:38:18 EDT

Step 6 and 7 read: 

6. Prepend the SAM public key content in /home/swreport/.ssh/authorized_keys with the following:

command="/usr/bin/spacewalk-report $SSH_ORIGINAL_COMMAND"

7. This ensures the swreport user only uses the spacewalk-report command.
Set permissions and the SELinux content on the .ssh directory and authorized_keys file for the swreport user.

[root@sat56] # chown -R swreport:swreport /home/swreport/.ssh
[root@sat56] # chmod 700 /home/swreport/.ssh
[root@sat56] # chmod 600 /home/swreport/.ssh/authorized_keys
[root@sat56] # restorecon -R /home/swreport/.ssh

Looks good to myself (usage of -R is OK, since directory shouldn't have anything but standard stuff).
