Description mreynolds 2018-04-24 14:21:59 UTC
Description of problem:

In F28 we need to bundle jemalloc for 389-ds-base, and preload it.  But selinux is preventing libjemalloc from being preloaded:

# semodule -DB
# ausearch -m AVC                                                                                                                      
time->Tue Apr 24 04:15:41 2018 
type=AVC msg=audit(1524557741.999:497): avc:  denied  { siginh } for  pid=16828 comm="ds_systemd_ask_" scontext=system_u:system_r:init_t:s0 tcontext=system_u:system_r:unconfined_service_t:s0 tclass=process permissive=0
time->Tue Apr 24 04:15:42 2018
type=AVC msg=audit(1524557742.038:498): avc:  denied  { noatsecure } for  pid=16833 comm="(ns-slapd)" scontext=system_u:system_r:init_t:s0 tcontext=system_u:system_r:dirsrv_t:s0 tclass=process permissive=0

I'm reproducing this on F26 thru rawhide.

How to reproduce:

[1]  # dnf install 389-ds-base jemalloc
[2]  # vi /etc/sysconfig/dirsrv

  add at the bottom:


[3]  Restart the server

    # restart-dirsrv

[4]  Check if libjemalloc was loaded

    # ps -ef | grep slapd
    # lsof -p PID_OF_SLAPD
  ---> libjemalloc is not listed

[5]  Disable selinux and restart the server:

    # setenforce 0
    # restart-dirsrv

[5]  Redo "lsof" test and now libjemalloc is listed

In Fedora 28 and RHEL 8 we need LD_PRELOADing working out of the box for 389-ds-base.


Comment 1 mreynolds 2018-04-24 14:26:21 UTC
Sorry I left out a step between steps [2] and [3]

[2.5]  Create instance of 389-ds-base

    # setup-ds.pl -s -f INSTALL_FILE

I am attaching the install text file next (it assumes localhost.localdonmain for hostname, but very easy to change in file)

Created attachment 1426089 [details]
INSTALL_FILE mentioned in comment 1

Put this file in /tmp and then run the setup as follows:

# setup-ds.pl -s -f /tmp/setup.inf
