Public bug reported: It's nice that salt-master is now (in 18.04) using a non-root account, but salt-syndic has yet to reflect this change. The salt-syndic service is currently set to run as root:root, which causes salt-syndic to make files unreadable by salt-master, which breaks many things.
Setting salt-syndic to run as salt:salt and flushing cache resolved this problem. ** Affects: salt (Ubuntu) Importance: Undecided Status: New -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu Bugs, which is subscribed to Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1763165 Title: salt-syndic breaks salt-master in 18.04 To manage notifications about this bug go to: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/salt/+bug/1763165/+subscriptions -- ubuntu-bugs mailing list email@example.com https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-bugs
