Comment 1 Dan Kenigsberg 2014-08-09 23:33:22 UTC
Which version of libselinux libselinux-python do you have?

Does running

 python -c 'import selinux;selinux.restorecon("/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0")'

as root produce similar noises?

Comment 2 Martin Pavlik 2014-08-11 07:35:00 UTC
[root@localhost ~]# cat /etc/redhat-release 
oVirt Node Hypervisor release 3.1.0_master (20140805.0) (Edited, Unsigned

[root@localhost ~]# python -c 'import selinux;selinux.restorecon("/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0")'

does not return anything

[root@localhost ~]# rpm -qa | grep selinux

Comment 3 Dan Kenigsberg 2014-08-11 09:00:48 UTC
A quick search reveals bug 908916 (restorecon() does not handle unicode strings), but I don't understand how unicode() got into the filename, or why this has not been visible out of the node. Any guess, Toni?

Martin, does this have a noticeable functional effect? What is your

 ls -Z /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0

Comment 4 Martin Pavlik 2014-08-11 09:56:21 UTC
no, no functional effect that I am aware of, I just noticed it when investigating other bug

[root@localhost admin]#  ls -Z /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0
-rw-rw-r--. root root system_u:object_r:net_conf_t:s0  /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0

Comment 5 Sandro Bonazzola 2014-10-17 12:26:25 UTC
oVirt 3.5 has been released and should include the fix for this issue.
