Description Stefanie Forrester 2014-01-21 19:25:14 UTC
Description of problem:
Sometimes a user's home dir is created with incorrect permissions. Generally the directories in /var/lib/openshift are owned by root, but occasionally we're seeing some owned by the user instead. This only affects a few gears per node, but the issue is present on more than half of the nodes.

$ ls -ld /var/lib/openshift/52d980205973ca51ee0000d2
drwxr-x---. 16 52d980205973ca51ee0000d2 52d980205973ca51ee0000d2 4096 Jan 21 03:59 /var/lib/openshift/52d980205973ca51ee0000d2

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

How reproducible:
Reproducible in environments with a large number of gears, since only a small percentage of them are affected. 

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a lot of gears.
2. Check to see if the issue has occurred. 
   find /var/lib/openshift -maxdepth 1 \! -user root

Actual results:
Eventually 'find' will return with some gear dirs that have incorrect permissions.

Expected results:
All dirs in /var/lib/openshift should be owned by root.

oo-accept-node has been enhanced to report this issue as of Sprint 2.0.39.

The symptom occurs when mcollective kills off the thread running the operation that locks/unlocks to the gear.

Comment 2 Dan McPherson 2014-02-08 00:58:32 UTC
Fixed in sprint 39.  The issue was every cart remove call was unlocking the gear home dir.

Comment 3 Meng Bo 2014-02-08 03:22:41 UTC
Checked on devenv_4346, with about 600 gears created on the node, it will not return the gear dir with user owned.

[root@ip-10-158-72-46 ~]# find /var/lib/openshift -maxdepth 1 \! -user root
[root@ip-10-158-72-46 ~]#
