I've tested on both centos5 and 6. On a system where I have clean environments and then I installed 5.0.4-rc1 on them and have moved the environment.xml out to all the nodes, it looks like I don't get any component statuses from any of my nodes:
sudo -u hpcc /opt/HPCCSystems/sbin/hpcc-run.sh -S -a hpcc-init status
Cannot detect python version 2.6+. Will run on the cluster hosts sequentially.
Total 4 to process
10.239.20.1: Host is alive.
10.239.20.1: Running sudo /etc/init.d/hpcc-init status
10.239.20.2: Host is alive.
10.239.20.2: Running sudo /etc/init.d/hpcc-init status

10.239.20.4: Host is alive.
10.239.20.4: Running sudo /etc/init.d/hpcc-init status
There are errors when executing hpcc-init_status_14694
Check log /var/log/HPCCSystems/cluster/se_hpcc-init_status_14694_20141022_154132.log for details.
however, if i just run hpcc-init service it does.
It also works if I don't use the -S option in hpcc-run.
