Description Stephen Tweedie 2015-07-29 10:37:09 EDT
Description of problem:
With the rsyslog SPC installed, log rotation works fine when invoked directly from the command line, but fails from crond, leaving an error in admin email:

From: Anacron <root@rhel-cloud.localdomain>
To: root@rhel-cloud.localdomain
Subject: Anacron job 'cron.daily' on rhel-cloud.localdomain


error: failed to open config file syslog: Permission denied
error: found error in file syslog, skipping

And indeed, the syslog logrotate file is installed with incorrect selinux labels (unsurprisingly, as the atomic INSTALL script doesn't set the label):

# ls -lZ /etc/logrotate.d
-rw-r--r--. root root system_u:object_r:etc_t:s0       chrony
-rw-r--r--. root root system_u:object_r:etc_t:s0       httpd
-rw-r--r--. root root system_u:object_r:etc_t:s0       ppp
-rw-r--r--. root root system_u:object_r:etc_t:s0       subscription-manager
-rw-r--r--. root root system_u:object_r:unlabeled_t:s0 syslog
-rw-r--r--. root root system_u:object_r:etc_t:s0       up2date
-rw-r--r--. root root system_u:object_r:etc_t:s0       wpa_supplicant
-rw-r--r--. root root system_u:object_r:etc_t:s0       yum
