Description Trevor Vaughan 2014-01-03 19:50:20 UTC
Description of problem:

The ability to move gears via rsync requires direct root access to systems. Per most published security guides, this is to be disabled and sudo to be used instead.

Request that rsync movement be able to be used via an account other than root.

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


How reproducible:

Disable direct root login, attempt to move a gear.

Actual results:

Gear movement fails.

Expected results:

Gear movement succeeds.

This issue appears to be a security feature RFE and not a security flaw or vulnerability.

We apologize, however, we do not plan to address this report at this time. The majority of our active development is for the v3 version of OpenShift. If you would like for Red Hat to reconsider this decision, please reach out to your support representative. We are very sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
