Description Sudhir Menon 2016-07-08 14:31:47 UTC
Description of problem: Log files in /var/log/ipa directory have different permissions.

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

How reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:

1. Install IPA server
2. Navigate to /var/log/ipa directory and check log file permissions.
3. Check /var/log directory for ipa related log file permissions.

Actual results:

[root@server ipa]# ls -l
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 4830 Jul  8 18:27 ipactl.log
-rw-------  1 root root    0 Jul  5 14:51 renew.log
-rw-r--r--  1 root root  912 Jul  8 17:52 server.log

[root@server log]# pwd
-rw-------  1 root   root      54141 Jul  8 16:47 ipabackup.log
-rw-------. 1 root   root      62059 Jul  8 16:54 ipaclient-install.log
-rw-------. 1 root   root      47168 Jul  8 12:00 ipaclient-uninstall.log
-rw-------  1 root   root       5749 Jul  8 16:10 ipareplica-install.log
-rw-------  1 root   root      36796 Jul  8 17:24 iparestore.log
-rw-------. 1 root   root      28651 Jul  8 18:43 ipaserver-install.log
-rw-------  1 root   root      91545 Jul  8 17:58 ipaserver-kra-install.log
-rw-------  1 root   root       2562 Jul  8 17:15 ipaserver-kra-uninstall.log
-rw-------. 1 root   root      65098 Jul  8 12:00 ipaserver-uninstall.log
-rw-------  1 root   root      61890 Jul  8 11:41 ipaserver-uninstall.log.crash
-rw-------  1 root   root   10542916 Jul  8 17:30 ipaupgrade.log

Expected results:
Permissions of log file should be consistent with other log files of ipaserver
i.e 600 unless specifically required to be different.

triage notes:     
mbasti: it looks like these logs (ipactl.log, default.log) are created by something else (systemd?) and they contain text from stderr

I suspect that ipactl.log is STDERR output from `systemctl start ipa`

IPA default logger setup has permission 0o600
