Hi Trey,

Pulp 2.4.1 has issues with MongoDB authorization[0]. From your logs, I
believe this message is due to the referenced bug:

Sep 30 20:51:49 repo01 pulp: celery.worker.job:CRITICAL: Task
INTERNAL ERROR: OperationFailure(u'not authorized to create index on

We do plan for this to be fixed with 2.5.0, and I've personally been
developing with only readWrite and dbAdmin[1] permissions on our master
branch so you can expect our MongoDB authorization support to improve in
the future.

You will have to grant dbAdmin permissions to your Pulp user, however,
as Pulp does need permissions to create indices.
