Description Michele Baldessari 2015-09-29 15:38:40 EDT
Description of problem:
Likely this is a selinux issue, but first filing against fence-virt in case I
missed something obvious. This is my /etc/fence_virt.conf:
ence_virtd {
        listener = "multicast";
        backend = "libvirt";

listeners {
        multicast {
                key_file = "/etc/cluster/fence_xvm.key";
                address = "";
                interface = "br-ctlplane";

backends {
        libvirt { 
                uri = "qemu+ssh://root@";

Even with the following selinux booleans set to on:
setsebool -P fenced_can_ssh=on fenced_can_network_connect=on

I get the following AVC:
type=AVC msg=audit(1443550953.402:47395): avc:  denied  { setcap } for  pid=31310 comm=fence_virtd" scontext=system_u:system_r:fenced_t:s0 tcontext=system_u:system_r:fenced_t:s0 tclass=process

If I start fence_virtd via root or if I disable selinux it works correctly.

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

Feel free to reassign to selinux-policy if you agree with the analysis

How reproducible:

Re-assigning this to selinux-policy since we're getting an avc denial when we're attempting to do normal fencing operations.
