Fixed In Version: rhevm-log-collector-3.3.0-1.el6ev
Doc Type: Enhancement
Doc Text:
On systems running SELinux, all processes and files are labeled with a label that contains security-relevant information. This information is called the SELinux context. Previously the log collector provided information whether the SELinux is enabled or not, but did not provide SELinux context for files. The fix adds a new output file of the SELinux context in specific folders including /rhev, /etc, and /var).

Description Maor 2013-09-01 07:00:38 EDT
Description of problem:
Log collector gives you the information whether the selinux is enables
or not, but do not display the selinux context of files and folders in the host.

We should add an output of selinux context in
specific folders such as /rhev /etc /var

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. execute log collector

Actual results:
no selinux context is present

Expected results:
selinux context should be present
