Description of problem:
Attempting to ping from an overcloud node when SSHed in as the heat-admin user results in a "Operation not permitted" error:

[stack@director pilot]$ ssh heat-admin@
[heat-admin@r13-controller-0 ~]$ ping
ping: socket: Operation not permitted

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
[stack@director pilot]$ rpm -qa | grep -i rhosp-director-images

How reproducible:
Install OSP10 with the latest bits and deploy the overcloud.  ssh into an overcloud node as heat-admin.  Try to ping another overcloud node.  Note the error.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. See above.

Actual results:
ping: socket: Operation not permitted

Expected results:
Ping should work.

Ping works when run as root:

[stack@director pilot]$ ssh heat-admin@
[heat-admin@r13-controller-0 ~]$ ping
ping: socket: Operation not permitted
[heat-admin@r13-controller-0 ~]$ sudo ping

Bug 1475871 is also this one, the workaround was to run setcap on ping.

$ sudo setcap 'cap_net_admin,cap_net_raw+ep' /usr/bin/ping

It was related to 7.4 images but I'm not seeing anything released.

Thanks Alex.
Glad we have a temporary workaround.

What and when is the real solution?

Comment 3 Alex Schultz 2017-08-28 21:38:31 UTC
It's still being investigated as part part of Bug 1475871.
