Description dgao 2010-08-19 15:13:25 UTC
Description of problem:
There's a permission issue with /var/log/pulp if pulp-admin is immediately executed after a fresh rpm install. The folder, and subsequently all the pulp log files are owned by root with permission of 644. As a result, pulp-admin fails. 

[dgao@pulp ~]$ pulp-admin -u admin -p admin repo list
ERROR: must be root to execute
[dgao@pulp ~]$ su - 
[root@pulp ~]# pulp-admin -u admin -p admin repo list
