Description Mikhail Strizhov 2013-05-22 19:39:58 EDT
Hello, Description of problem: Recently we found that systemd is blocking services. # /sbin/reboot Failed to issue method call: Unit reboot.target failed to load: Permission denied. See system logs and 'systemctl status reboot.target' for details. Broadcast message from root@volga on pts/0 (Wed 2013-05-22 17:35:05 MDT): The system is going down for reboot NOW! # systemctl status reboot.target reboot.target Loaded: error (Reason: Permission denied) Active: inactive (dead) # /sbin/shutdown -r now Failed to issue method call: Unit reboot.target failed to load: Permission denied. See system logs and 'systemctl status reboot.target' for details. Broadcast message from root@volga on pts/0 (Wed 2013-05-22 17:35:09 MDT): The system is going down for reboot NOW! # /sbin/shutdown -h now Failed to issue method call: Unit poweroff.target failed to load: Permission denied. See system logs and 'systemctl status poweroff.target' for details. Broadcast message from root@volga on pts/0 (Wed 2013-05-22 17:38:37 MDT): The system is going down for power-off NOW! # systemctl status poweroff.target poweroff.target Loaded: error (Reason: Permission denied) Active: inactive (dead) Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): Fedora 18 Linux 3.9.2-200.fc18.x86_64 How reproducible: Steps to Reproduce: 1. Run reboot or shutdown command 2. 3. Actual results: Nothing happens. Expected results: Reboot and shutdown Additional info: Here are some last messages in /var/log/messages http://pastebin.com/FZVX3CLM
Comment 1 Zbigniew Jędrzejewski-Szmek 2013-05-22 21:05:28 EDT
What does 'ls -l /usr/lib/systemd/system/reboot.target' say?
Comment 2 Mikhail Strizhov 2013-05-22 22:37:12 EDT
# ls -l /usr/lib/systemd/system/reboot.target -rw-r--r--. 1 root root 493 May 7 02:57 /usr/lib/systemd/system/reboot.target
Comment 3 Michal Schmidt 2013-05-23 03:55:05 EDT
I'm guessing SELinux. The symptoms match a significantly mislabeled filesystem. What does this say?: ls -Z /usr/lib/systemd/system/reboot.target Try "setenforce 0" to switch SELinux to permissive mode. If it helps, perform a full relabel of the filesystem in the next reboot.
Comment 4 Mikhail Strizhov 2013-05-23 11:00:48 EDT
Here is output: # ls -Z /usr/lib/systemd/system/reboot.target -rw-r--r--. root root system_u:object_r:file_t:s0 /usr/lib/systemd/system/reboot.target # setenforce 0 setenforce: SELinux is disabled # cat config | grep SELINUX # SELINUX= can take one of these three values: SELINUX=disabled # SELINUXTYPE= can take one of these two values: SELINUXTYPE=targeted I think this behaviour started after monday's yum update. We had following selinux update packages: -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 251808 May 18 11:15 selinux-policy-3.11.1-95.fc18.noarch.rpm -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1861052 May 18 11:17 selinux-policy-devel-3.11.1-95.fc18.noarch.rpm -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 919848 May 18 11:19 selinux-policy-doc-3.11.1-95.fc18.noarch.rpm -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 4102908 May 18 11:19 selinux-policy-targeted-3.11.1-95.fc18.noarch.rpm Also, here is filesystem information: # fdisk -l Disk /dev/sda: 160.0 GB, 160041885696 bytes, 312581808 sectors Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes Disk identifier: 0xd71054eb Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/sda1 2048 67110911 33554432 82 Linux swap / Solaris /dev/sda2 67110912 201328639 67108864 83 Linux /dev/sda3 201328640 312581807 55626584 83 Linux # cat /etc/fstab # # /etc/fstab # Created by anaconda on Mon Apr 15 12:48:01 2013 # # Accessible filesystems, by reference, are maintained under '/dev/disk' # See man pages fstab(5), findfs(8), mount(8) and/or blkid(8) for more info # LABEL=/ / ext4 defaults 1 1 LABEL=/s/local/a /s/volga/a ext4 defaults 1 2 LABEL=SWAP swap swap defaults 0 0 chopin:/fedora64-local /usr/local nfs nfsvers=3,hard,intr,bg 0 0 tmpfs /tmp tmpfs defaults 0 0 The same thing happens on other 5 Fedora 18 machines. Also, I found an odd work around for this issue: # systemctl enable reboot.target ln -s '/usr/lib/systemd/system/reboot.target' '/etc/systemd/system/ctrl-alt-del.target' volga # reboot Then machine reboots.
Comment 5 Mikhail Strizhov 2013-05-23 14:05:16 EDT
So apparently there is something related to accounts-daemon.service. If accounts-daemon.service is enabled, all other commands are working: # systemctl enable accounts-daemon.service ln -s '/usr/lib/systemd/system/accounts-daemon.service' '/etc/systemd/system/graphical.target.wants/accounts-daemon.service' # reboot # shutdown -h now or shutdown -r now
Comment 6 Fedora End Of Life 2013-12-21 08:41:00 EST
This message is a reminder that Fedora 18 is nearing its end of life. Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 18. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '18'. Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 18's end of life. Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 18 is end of life. If you would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 18's end of life. Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes bugs or makes them obsolete.
Comment 7 Fedora End Of Life 2014-02-05 16:29:47 EST
Fedora 18 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2014-01-14. Fedora 18 is no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug. If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this bug. Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
