Description Chris Duryee 2013-07-17 09:01:47 EDT
Description of problem:

(from rwj@redhat.com)

>> Many of our customers strictly forbid directly SSH'ing via root. As
>> spacewalk-report needs to be run as root. I think an acceptable solution
>> would be to create an unprivileged user on the Satellite, and leverage
>> sudo to run the commands we need.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): spacewalk-splice-tool-0.25-1

Additional info: This will likely require a code change as well as documentation updates to set up a non-root user to run the reports.
