I installed openstack on CentOS and when running my program as daemon I get 'sudo: sorry, you must have a tty to run sudo' error message. After commenting out 'Default requiretty', the error disappears. I was wondering what is the correct fix for that?

Default requiretty this entry ensures that sudo needs a TTY by commenting it out you have disbaled that it. Red hat has acknowledged it as a bug.
