Fixed In Version: sapconf-0.98-5.el6
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
In SELinux permissive mode, the parameter with the path to the configuration file was missing. As a consequence, the sapconf script was waiting for the user input, which led to sapconf becoming unresponsive. The underlying source code has been fixed, and sapconf no longer hangs in the aforementioned situation.

Created attachment 968111 [details]
sapconf-0.98-4 check_security() patch

Description of problem:
/usr/bin/sapconf waits for input (from keyboard) instead of reading from file in check_security()

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
every version upto -0.98-4 (latest as of now)

How reproducible:
every time if 'SELINUX=permissive' is set in '/etc/selinux/config'

Steps to Reproduce:
1. verify 'SELINUX=permissive' is set in '/etc/selinux/config'
2. ./sapconf

Actual results:
script "locks up" waiting for keyboard input

Expected results:
script does not lock up

Additional info:
it looks like no one has tested this branch of execution. anyway, the bug and the fix are obvious, still please, see a proposed patch.

    if egrep -q "^SELINUX=['\"]?permissive"; then
                  the bug is exactly here ^^^
