Description Rehana 2018-09-05 08:58:09 UTC
Description of problem:
with the fix of this Bug 1576423 , subscription manager now honours proxy port other than default 3128 . However during the test, it came to our notice that rhsmcertd process was failing run due to AVC denial Bug 1623376. The recommendation on this selinux bug was to have local policy added to honour proxy port of user's choice. 

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.These are the following steps to enable rhsmcertd to pass through new port  

to add a local policy
# semanage port -a -t squid_port_t -p tcp <port number>

2.To change the system back to look at 3128 port, just remove the policy 

#semanage port -d -t squid_port_t -p tcp <port number>

Actual results:
Users will see rhsmcertd failure if their policy is not updated

Expected results:
man page proxy_port should have details on what modification user should on the policy in order to help rhsmcertd run against a non-default proxy port
