Description Jason Montleon 2014-10-09 13:31:36 UTC
Description of problem:
When setting up a Libvirt CR in Satellite 6.0.4 and clicking Test Connection with selinux enforcing I get 'Error making a connection to libvirt URI qemu+ssh://<hostname>/system: Call to virConnectOpen failed: Cannot find 'ssh' in path: No such file or directory'

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Satellite 6.0.4

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set up a libvirt host
2. Set up a Satellite 6.0.4 server on RHEL 7
3. Attempt to configure the libvirt host as a CR using qemu+ssh

Actual results:
selinux denial causes a 'Cannot find 'ssh'' error.

Expected results:
Libvirt CR finishes set up normally

Additional info:
http://projects.theforeman.org/issues/7719 is the upstream issue. I believe lzap has collected the information he needs to fix the issue with a policy update.
