Description Karl Hastings 2015-12-14 22:01:57 EST
Description of problem:
with the switch to systemd the "PROMPT" option is no longer a valid config option in /etc/sysconfig/init and has no effect, therefore setting it to "no" does nothing and shouldn't be checked by the guide.  ("Disable Interactive Boot")

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Comment 3 Šimon Lukašík 2016-01-11 08:34:25 EST
To my understanding this has been fixed in upstream. Granting dev_ack+.

Comment 4 Karl Hastings 2016-01-11 15:09:24 EST

Unless I'm missing something, (And I could very well be)  I don't see the changes merged for RHEL7:


RHEL7/systemd does not follow the PROMPT=no option in /etc/sysconfig/init, so that test should be removed.
RHEL7/systemd uses systemd.confirm_spawn=1 on the kernel command line to do an interactive boot, that test needs to be added.

Ah, you are right, Karl.

Thank You!

Comment 9 Marek Haicman 2016-06-30 07:01:13 EDT
Version scap-security-guide-0.1.30-1.el7 contains the fix. PROMPT=no is no longer suggested and checked, and instead systemd.confirm_spawn is checked.
