Description Michal Middleton 2017-09-26 14:35:42 UTC
Description of problem:
Accessing Repositories / Sync page returns Internal Server Error

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Spacewalk 2.7 on CentOS 7.4
2. Add a repo
3. Add a channel, link with existing repo
4. Go to Sync page (https://alnqa1swlk01.gdsxqa.int/rhn/channels/manage/Sync.do?cid=<repoid>) (page still works ok at this time)
5. Request a one time repo sync
6. Wait a few seconds for the sync to begin refresh. You will get ISE

Actual results:
Web server returns ISE

Expected results:
Get sync status

Additional info:
Found this message in Tomcat log (/var/log/tomcat/localhost.2017-09-26.log): 
Sep 26, 2017 2:27:05 PM org.apache.catalina.core.StandardWrapperValve invoke
SEVERE: Servlet.service() for servlet [action] in context with path [/rhn] threw exception [java.lang.RuntimeException: File not found: /var/log/rhn/reposync/test-channel1.log] with root cause
java.lang.RuntimeException: File not found: /var/log/rhn/reposync/test-channel1.log

I traced this problem to a missing SELinux rules. Here is a TE that solved this issue:

module spacewalk-fix 1.3;

require {
	type tomcat_t;
	type spacewalk_log_t;
	class dir { getattr search };
	class file { getattr open read };

#============= tomcat_t ==============
allow tomcat_t spacewalk_log_t:dir { getattr search };
allow tomcat_t spacewalk_log_t:file { getattr open read };

I've a similar comportment.
I used "spacewalk-repo-sync -c <myrepo>" from command line to check if myrepo can be synchronized or not. In my case, it worked well but once I clicked on Sync to schedule the synchronisation, I got "Internal Server Error".

For now, I disable SElinux with setenforce O.

Thanks Michal for the fix, it works for me too.
