Post rpm installation permission issue.

Userlevel 3

When installing from rpm, the Data Collector configuration directory is installed as /etc/sdc. 

rpm leaves the permissions in place as 755, owned by root:root.  In this case, root permissions are required to configure Data Collector. 


Also, after configuration is complete, registering with Control Hub requires permissions to update and application-token.txt which are stored in /etc/sdc. Accessing these files fails since Data Collector is usually running as sdc:sdc or as a service account. 


In order to permit user sdc to update these files, please `chown -R sdc:sdc /etc/sdc`  Also, you may need to replace sdc:sdc with your service account and group.
