Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 192965
SELinux needs to be OFF, not permissive
Last modified: 2009-08-19 23:17:46 EDT
Description of problem:
it says that SELinux needs to be disabled or in permissive mode to install RHN
Satellite. The installer for rhn-satellite-4.0.6-12 fails if it is in
permissive mode, saying that it must be disabled.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Corrections committed for both 405 and 410.
Shannon, can we re-spin the 405 Satellite Guide as part of the 410 release?
Re-assigning to shughes for the next QA push
rebuild sat 405, moving to ondev
We actually need to put this back to the way it was in 405:
" Security-enhanced Linux (SELinux) must be disabled or in permissive mode prior
to installation of RHN Satellite Server. To do this during CD or ISO image
installation, select Permissive when presented with options for SELinux
support. To do this for kickstart installation, include the command selinux
--permissive or wait for the install to complete, edit the /etc/selinux/config
file to read SELINUX=permissive and reboot the system.
More in-depth coverage of SELinux is available at http://www.redhat.com/docs/.
You may also refer to the Red Hat Knowledgebase article on SELinux and RHN
Satellite Server at http://kbase.redhat.com/faq/. "
we fixed the issue with the installer and it now will run with SELinux in
Confirmed with mmccune that this change only needs to be made to the 410 docs.
I've alerted Michelle Kim and the translation team of this change.
Correction made (un-made?) and committed to CVS.
Moving to ON_QA
QA Verified - release notes indicate that selinux must be disabled or in
moving to closed - currentrelease
