Description Daniel Berrange 2003-07-28 11:11:20 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.9 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20030314

Description of problem:
Adding users to the site wide administrators group doesn't appear to alter what
the user can access. Looking in the DB, there only appears to be two entries in
acs_permissions against object zero:

  'Administrator Account' 


  'ACS System Party'

I would have expected an entry for 'Site Wide Administrators'. Incidently what
is 'ACS System Party' ?

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a new user
2. Add them to 'Site Wide Administrators' group
3. Log in as the new user
4. Go to '/admin'

Actual Results:  Access denied exception is thrown

Expected Results:  The administration  tools are displayed
