Description Jan van Eldik 2012-04-10 08:41:49 UTC
Description of problem:


  $> sudo openstack-nova-db-setup

as per http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Getting_started_with_OpenStack_on_Fedora_17
creates a logfile owned by root:

  $> ls -l /var/log/glance/registry.log
  -rw-r--r--. 1 root root 132 Apr 10 10:32 /var/log/glance/registry.log

This prevents the glance-registry service from starting - it runs under the
"glance" account, and cannot write to the logfile.

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

  $> rpm -qf /usr/bin/openstack-glance-db-setup 

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:

Simply run "sudo /usr/bin/openstack-glance-db-setup"
Additional info:

(Re-) Moving the logfile solves the issue.

Also present in openstack-glance-2012.1-1.fc16.noarch

Comment 2 Pádraig Brady 2012-04-10 11:54:00 UTC
Good one. This happens on new systems where openstack-glance-db-setup is run before glance ever was. I.E. the norm for users. This should fix it...

openstack-glance-2012.1-2.fc17 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 17.

Comment 4 Pádraig Brady 2012-04-10 14:00:32 UTC
Note the build above is for F17, but you might be able to install manually on your F16 system.

I checked keystone and its "db sync" process does not create log files.
I checked nova, and its does, but only for the nova-manage command which
is generally run as root anyway.
In any case all services will soon update to a shared db-setup script which will manage permissions consistently.

Works fine on F16, Karma given.
