Description of problem:
Puppet can't write to /var/log/foreman/cron.log

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Red Hat Satellite v.6.1.x

Issue :  puppet can't write to /var/log/foreman/cron.log

As customer observed :

For the below line in /etc/cron.d/foreman:

*/2 * * * *     puppet    /usr/bin/ruby193-ruby /etc/puppet/node.rb --push-facts >>/var/log/foreman/cron.log 2>&1

The log file '/var/log/foreman/cron.log' was not writeable an email with the error message was send by crond to user puppet.


Resolved by doing,

# usermod -aG foreman puppet


# chmod g+w /var/log/foreman/cron.log
