Missing step in setting up a non-root agent

We are setting up PE Agents on Redhat using the steps indicated here

After step 5, the following folders are owned by root - /opt/puppet, /var/log/puppet, /etc/puppet. I dont see steps 6 through 10 correcting the file permissions, given that when you do the first puppet agent --test fails with permission issues on the said folders. There could be some steps missing during this transition from root to non-root user.

Did anybody experienced the same? How did you solve it? what am I missing? Thanks

Can you share the error messages you observe, and any of the output for steps 1-10 that you may have saved or can recreate?
