Subject [GitHub] cloudstack pull request: CLOUDSTACK-8339: Allow non-root users to ...
Date Sun, 24 May 2015 18:16:06 GMT
Github user remibergsma commented on the pull request:
    @bhaisaab, I tested your patch and ran to an issue where a TTY is required to run sudo,
but not requested. The host cannot be added.
    2015-05-24 13:48:44,175 DEBUG [c.c.u.s.SSHCmdHelper] (ApiServer-8:ctx-0b7d379a ctx-5e04fa3a)
sudo cloudstack-setup-agent  -m -z 1 -p 1 -c 1 -g 57acd541-cd37-34ea-af6a-dc6ecd007325
-a --pubNic=cloudbr0 --prvNi
    c=cloudbr0 --guestNic=cloudbr0 --hypervisor=kvm output:sudo: sorry, you must have a tty
to run sudo
    Because it always uses 'sudo' you cannot add a host as 'root' nor as other user. To test:
    [root@cs1 ~]# ssh root@kvm1 sudo whoami
    root@kvm1's password: 
    sudo: sorry, you must have a tty to run sudo
    Two possible solutions:
    1. Specify -t parameter or similar to request a TTY:
    [root@cs1 ~]# ssh -t root@kvm1 sudo whoami
    root@kvm1's password: 
    Connection to kvm1 closed.
    I prefer this solution since we then solve it on the CloudStack side. Alternatively, one
can remove the TTY requirement from /etc/sudoers file:
    Defaults    requiretty
    I've continued my tests with altering the /etc/sudoers file and then I can add the host
as user 'root' again, and also as user 'cloud' that I added to the /etc/sudoers file to allow
it root without a password.
    [root@kvm2 ~]# ps aux | grep cloud
    root     23044  0.7  0.0 133128  4748 ?        Ss   14:03   0:00 sshd: cloud [priv]
    cloud    23048  0.0  0.0 133128  2216 ?        S    14:03   0:00 sshd: cloud@notty

-m -z 2 -p 2 -c 3 -g 57acd541-cd37-34ea-af6a-dc6ecd007325 -a --pubNic=cloudbr0
--prvNic=cloudbr0 --guestNic=cloudbr0 --hypervisor=kvm
    root     23073  0.8  0.1 199392  9740 ?        S    14:03   0:00 /usr/bin/python /bin/cloudstack-setup-agent

    Could you see if you can add a TTY request to your 'sudo cloudstack-setup-agent' call?
    Apart from this: works-like-a-sharm :-)
