The rootwrap.conf file defines configuration values used by the rootwrap script when the Compute service needs to escalate its privileges to those of the root user.

It is also possible to disable the root wrapper, and default to sudo only. Configure the disable_rootwrap option in the [workaround] section of the nova.conf configuration file.
