   Synopsis
          nova-rootwrap [options]

   Description
       nova-rootwrap  is  an  application  that  filters which commands nova is allowed to run as
       another user.

       To use this, you should set the following in nova.conf:

          rootwrap_config=/etc/nova/rootwrap.conf

       You also need to let the nova user run nova-rootwrap as root in sudoers:

          nova ALL = (root) NOPASSWD: /usr/bin/nova-rootwrap /etc/nova/rootwrap.conf *

       To  make  allowed   commands   node-specific,   your   packaging   should   only   install
       {compute,network}.filters  respectively on compute and network nodes, i.e.  nova-api nodes
       should not have any of those files installed.

       NOTE:
          nova-rootwrap is being  slowly  deprecated  and  replaced  by  oslo.privsep,  and  will
          eventually be removed.
