That makes sense. Didn't know about the system:admin user. However having just logged in with that user, I'm still having issues:
[root openshift-test admin]# ./oadm policy add-cluster-role-to-user cluster-admin admin
Error from server: User "system" cannot get clusterpolicybindings at the cluster scope
Also, as I am trying to follow instructions (on how to install fabric8 on OpenShift) given here, I'm also getting problems:
[root openshift-test admin]# ./oadm router --create --credentials=/var/lib/openshift/openshift.local.config/master/openshift-router.kubeconfigerror: can't check for existing router "router": User "system" cannot get services in project "default"
