Undercloud install changing ~/.config ownership

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • On the Undercloud only, the /home/stack directory has restrictive permissions, where it’s owned by root:root.
  • It can be problematic if an operator uses a tool (e.g. virt-customize, or podman rootless, etc) that uses that directory with the stack user.
  • This will be fixed in Red Hat OpenStack Platform 16.1


  • Red Hat OpenStack Platform 16.0 (Train)
  • Red Hat OpenStack Platform 16.0.1
