?Can you provide example of some of the files?

In general Ambari runs as root unless configured with a custom user.  Some of the files it
manages may be created as the service user (say HDFS data directories are owned by HDFS service

Subject: proper Ambari permissions

When I'm working in Ambari, sometimes I can't manage files because whatever user I'm working
under doesn't have permission.

  1.  What account does Ambari use when it is interacting with the various other programs?
  2.  How do I need to set my permissions so that when I'm in Ambari as admin, I'm able to
create and blow away things at will?
