Better error message when can't read /etc/bcfg2.conf

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: desai
Priority: major Milestone: Bcfg2 0.9.5 Release
Component: bcfg2-client Version:
Keywords: Cc:


/etc/bcfg2.conf is readable by root only and when isn't ran by root or with sudo, we get this:

 python /usr/share/pycentral/bcfg2-server/site-packages/Bcfg2/Server/Reports/ 
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/pycentral/bcfg2-server/site-packages/Bcfg2/Server/Reports/", line 7, in ?
    import settings
  File "/usr/share/pycentral/bcfg2-server/site-packages/Bcfg2/Server/Reports/", line 6, in ?
    if c.get('statistics', 'web_debug') == "True":
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/", line 511, in get
    raise NoSectionError(section)
ConfigParser.NoSectionError: No section: 'statistics'

Better error message probably can just be "/etc/bcfg2.conf not readable".
