Description of problem:
rabbitmqctl rotate_logs issues with selinux in OSP 9 and 10

Logging issue seems to be caused by selinux. This cannot be reproduced manually simply by running 'rabbitmqctl rotate_logs'. Likely, selinux context is different just running as root.

From a lab system, this example is OSP 10, but I see the same issue on OSP 9 and rabbitmq-server-3.6.3-5.el7ost.noarch:

Comment 4 Matt Flusche 2017-01-17 16:34:46 UTC

Here are the details with selinux in permissive mode; I changed logrotate to roll the rabbit log every hour so we don't have to wait.

[root@undercloud10 ~]# cat /var/log/audit/audit.log |audit2allow 

#============= logrotate_t ==============
allow logrotate_t epmd_port_t:tcp_socket name_connect;
allow logrotate_t rabbitmq_port_t:tcp_socket name_connect;
allow logrotate_t rabbitmq_var_lib_t:dir { read write };
allow logrotate_t rabbitmq_var_lib_t:file { getattr open read };
allow logrotate_t security_t:security compute_av;
allow logrotate_t self:passwd passwd;
allow logrotate_t self:process setrlimit;

[root@undercloud10 ~]# getenforce

Comment 7 Peter Lemenkov 2017-05-26 16:16:03 UTC
I've finally got a patch for SELinux against Fedora Rawhide. I'll provide a build as soon as it will be approved by upstream and merged. Hopefully soon enough.

Comment 10 Peter Lemenkov 2018-03-12 15:24:46 UTC
It seems that it takes a lot of time to move these patches through the upstream selinux-policy repository, so I decided to switch to a more short path and push them into openstack-selinux repository. Expect a proper solution soon.

Comment 11 Peter Lemenkov 2018-04-12 06:15:06 UTC
This issue is fixed in openstack-selinux-0.8.14-1.el7ost which is available for all RHOS-10, RHOS-11, RHOS-12, RHOS-13.
