createmailbox: permission denied

i hope, someone can help me out.

i'm using cyrus-2.1.1 w/ sasl-2.1.0 on redhat7.2.

my problem:

i cannot create mailboxes using 'cyradm'.

i created a user cyrus.

added that user to 'admins:' in /etc/imapd.conf and gave him a password.

# grep "admins:" /etc/imapd.conf
admins: cyrus

# sasldblistusers2
: userPassword

i can login as cyrus:

# cyradm --user cyrus localhost
Password:
localhost.localdomain>

in the logfile:

Feb 4 11:16:12 crypta imapd[21064]: login: localhost.localdomain[127.0.0.1]
 DIGEST-MD5 User logged in

seems good to me.

then i tried to create a mailbox:

localhost.localdomain> cm user.test
createmailbox: Permission denied

in the logfile:

Feb 4 11:17:31 crypta imapd[21064]: myfetch: starting txn 2147483659
Feb 4 11:17:31 crypta imapd[21064]: myfetch: reusing txn 2147483659
Feb 4 11:17:31 crypta imapd[21064]: abort_txn: aborting txn 2147483659

so, i think, some filesystem permissions are incorrect. i followed the
instructions in 'install.html', but maybe i missed something.

what can cause that error? and how can i fix it?

thanks for your time.
