Comment 1 Mike McCune 2018-03-09 17:01:54 UTC
Adam, is the MR requested here all that is needed for this bug? If so, it got merged some time ago and we can close this out.

Comment 2 Adam Ruzicka 2018-03-12 11:17:44 UTC
No, the requested MR was to "make the options for it show up in the installer". This BZ is now about "when I use the options, installer fails on SELinux enabled machines".

Comment 5 Lukas Zapletal 2019-10-29 11:46:21 UTC
Workaround A:

semanage permissive passenger_t

Workaround B:

echo -n "module passenger-execmem 1.0;\nallow passenger_t self:process execmem;\n" > passenger-execmem.pp
semodule -i passenger-execmem.pp

A patch will add this into Satellite 6.7 policy (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1541481 / https://projects.theforeman.org/issues/26951).

Comment 6 Bryan Kearney 2019-10-29 12:03:48 UTC
Upstream bug assigned to lzap

Comment 7 Bryan Kearney 2019-10-29 12:03:50 UTC
Moving this bug to POST for triage into Satellite 6 since the upstream issue https://projects.theforeman.org/issues/26951 has been resolved.

Comment 8 Peter Ondrejka 2020-02-04 13:51:12 UTC
Verified on Satellite 6.7 snap 10, installation with --foreman-proxy-plugin-remote-execution-ssh-ssh-kerberos-auth on machine in enforcing SELinux mode succeeds as expected.

Also notified docs (via the feedback button) that the first step in
is no longer needed. (autogenerated bz https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1798056)
