Description Mikkel Kruse Johnsen 2005-05-18 04:44:44 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050513 Fedora/1.0.4-1.3.1 Firefox/1.0.4

Description of problem:
The snmpd don't come up after a logrotate.

May 15 04:02:03 mandio snmpd: snmpd startup succeeded
May 15 04:02:03 mandio kernel: audit(1116122523.697:0): avc:  denied  { unlink } for  pid=15117 exe=/usr/sbin/snmpd name=snmpd dev=dm-1 ino=910364 scontext=system_u:system_r:snmpd_t tcontext=system_u:object_r:var_run_t tclass=file
May 15 04:02:03 mandio snmpd[15117]: /var/run/snmpd: File exists

The file "/var/run/snmpd" exists and have to be deleted by hand, before snmpd will start.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Wait for logrotate to rotate the snmpd.log

Actual Results:  The daemon snmpd is not restarted, and the file var/run/snmpd has to be deleted by hand.

Expected Results:  The daemon snmpd should restart after logrotate

Additional info:

Im running RHEL4 SELinux in enforcing mode.

On IBM x345 2 x 3.2 GHz and 2 GB RAM

Strange, this seems to be clearly working for me.

# getenforce
# service snmpd status
snmpd (pid 22526) is running...
# logrotate -f /etc/logrotate.d/snmpd
# service snmpd status
snmpd (pid 22766) is running...

Can you also provide the logrotate version? 
Also try restoring SELinux context in /var/log with
# restorecon -R /var/log
