Confluence Python Script

Hi All Genius out there,

I have written Python script to Bulk Upload profile pic.

I am facing issue, when i run script from Linux terminal under my user i.e akash user, Script runs fine and perform the cron job. But when i try to run same script through root or other user my script fails to run with error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "ProfileAvatorScript.py", line 54, in <module>
    isConfluenceUser = server.confluence1.hasUser(token, userName)
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.6/xmlrpclib.py", line 1199, in __call__
    return self.__send(self.__name, args)
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.6/xmlrpclib.py", line 1489, in __request
    verbose=self.__verbose
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.6/xmlrpclib.py", line 1235, in request
    self.send_content(h, request_body)
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.6/xmlrpclib.py", line 1349, in send_content
    connection.endheaders()
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.6/httplib.py", line 908, in endheaders
    self._send_output()
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.6/httplib.py", line 780, in _send_output
    self.send(msg)
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.6/httplib.py", line 739, in send
    self.connect()
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.6/httplib.py", line 1112, in connect
    sock = socket.create_connection((self.host, self.port), self.timeout)
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.6/socket.py", line 553, in create_connection
    for res in getaddrinfo(host, port, 0, SOCK_STREAM):
socket.gaierror: [Errno -2] Name or service not known

while running the Script with other user, I have changed the appropriate ownership to that user.
