How are you launching cyradm?  Is there a cyrus user allready set up on your
machine, if there is use that one, if not , create a user specifically for
administrating the Cyrus server.  See Luc de Low's Howto, (only partially
relevant if you are using rpms, but still  good for the setup phase) at

    prompt> cyradm --auth login localhost --user cyrus
is how I start cyradm on my server (SuSe 8.2, standard rpms).
