ipmiconsole_setup fails with dracut-fips
Last modified: 2018-02-22 14:29:04 EST
Description of problem:
When dracut-fips packages are installed and /etc/system-fips exists
ipmiconsole fails on ipmiconsole_engine_init()
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
tested on Dell server with IPMI Controller
1. install dracut-fips
# ipmiconsole -u root -p pwd -h <host>
ipmiconsole_setup: Bad file descriptor
[closing the connection]
Affects also conman since it calls the same ipmiconsole_engine_init() library function.
Issue dismisses if you remove /etc/system-fips file.
ipmitool package doesn't suffer the issue
# ipmitool -I lanplus -U root -P pwd -H <host> -e \& sol activate
[SOL Session operational. Use &? for help]
<host> login: &. [terminated ipmitool]
Interestingly, I didn't manage to reproduce the issue with
freeipmi-1.2.9-3.fc20.x86_64 ... freeipmi-1.5.5-1.fc25.x86_64
Thanks Josef I ended up closing so that it reflects properly in the queries.
