Install Error: Failed to set the owner of /opt/electriccloud/electriccommander/conf/agent.key to

Error I'm getting during install: Install Error: Failed to set the owner of /opt/electriccloud/electriccommander/conf/agent.key to

I noticed this error was previously related to a FQDN DNS issue on the server - I recieved this while trying to perform an agent only install (no server connection should be needed here, right?)

We have attempted this with both and and are getting the same results with both installers

As what user are you trying to perform the install? What o/s and version?

The install is being ran as root - we have tried assigning to run as a user in the sudoers list and a user not in the sudoers list. This is on a RHEL 6.4 machine.

What user are you choosing for the RHEL user during the install?

We've created a user and group called ec This is the user we put into the sudoers list, that still didn't work after being placed in the sudoers list. I actually only added to the sudoers on a hunch - the reason for the error is that the agent.key file isn't here in the first place. I thought maybe the installer was attempting to create the key using the access user rights, or some other weird thing like that.

Oh. Yes, if the file isn't there it isn't going to work. :)
