Description Orion Poplawski 2005-08-23 11:13:44 EDT
Description of problem:
Seeing the following on one of our nfs servers:

Aug 22 16:28:17 alexandria kernel: audit(1124749697.682:2652): avc:  denied  {
getattr } for  pid=2510 comm="rpc.rquotad" name="mtab" dev=dm-0 ino=87007
scontext=system_u:system_r:rpcd_t tcontext=root:object_r:etc_runtime_t tclass=file
Aug 22 16:28:17 alexandria kernel: audit(1124749697.682:2653): avc:  denied  {
search } for  pid=2510 comm="rpc.rquotad" name="export" dev=dm-0 ino=96001
scontext=system_u:system_r:rpcd_t tcontext=system_u:object_r:user_home_t tclass=dir
Aug 22 16:28:17 alexandria kernel: audit(1124749697.683:2654): avc:  denied  {
getattr } for  pid=2510 comm="rpc.rquotad" name="/" dev=hda5 ino=2
scontext=system_u:system_r:rpcd_t tcontext=system_u:object_r:user_home_t tclass=dir

I don't implement quotas on this machine so I'm not sure if quota functionality
is affected, but I'm hesitant to upgrade my fc3 server that does until this is

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run quota on a client while an nfs mount from the server is mounted.

How is rpc.rquotad labeled on your system.  It is sbin_t on mine which means it
would run as initrc_t.  It probably needs a domain for itself to be properly

Comment 2 Orion Poplawski 2005-08-25 10:37:50 EDT
Ah, looks like it wasn't labeled properly:

# fixfiles -R quota relabel
/sbin/restorecon reset /usr/sbin/rpc.rquotad context

Restarted nfs and now I don't see the denied messages.

Looks like it didn't get relabeled properly after the upgrade from FC3->FC4?
