Description Alfredo Deza 2016-02-26 12:18:23 EST
Description of problem:
Breaks situations where ansible depends on it. Mostly when it expands to write to temporary files that usually go into $HOME/.ansible/tmp which gets 'expanded' to /.ansible/tmp that doesn't exist and is owned by root

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

How reproducible: 100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Setup installer
2. Configure a mon via the HTTP API

Actual results: breaks with ansible output in the task, mentioning lack of permissions for $HOME/.ansible

Expected results: succeeds with no issues

Is there no other way to tell Ansible to write its files to somewhere else? like /tmp or $TMPDIR?
Comment 4 Ken Dreyer (Red Hat) 2016-03-15 11:44:12 EDT
systemd adds $HOME to the environment by default, so we're good here.
