Bug ID: 1036780
Summary: rabbitmq-server wrapper script drops arguments
QA Contact: extras-qa(a)fedoraproject.org
Description of problem:
the wrapper script /usr/sbin/rabbitmqctl drops all arguments to the command in
certain cases, for example when the calling user is not root.
I am running a rabbitmq node as a local user (for development) as a regular
user, outside of /var. This works fine, however the Fedora-specific wrapper to
"rabbitctl" will obscure access to the rabbitctl script. It took me quite a
while to debug what was happening, until I found out the command is really a
wrapper whose sole purpose is munging arguments -- and it does it wrong.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I am on 3.1.5-1.fc19 but I see the same bug in rawhide.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Be non-root / non-rabbitmq user
2. Run rabbitmqctl status
Error: could not recognise command
rabbitmqctl [-n <node>] [-q] <command> [<command options>]
Status of node rabbit@localhost ...
The warning "Only root or rabbitmq should run" should really be "Only root
rabbitmq must run", as currently it makes it impossible for anyone else.
However, this is not true, as any user *can* run rabbitmq.
Furthermore, users in the rabbitmq group should be able to run management
commands, given the correct parameters.
Lastly, the "rabbitmq-plugins" case looks fishy too, as it allows anyone to run
the rabbitmq-plugins command, and makes the first line obsolete.
