Description Thomas Cameron 2006-05-24 11:27:16 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):
Comment 1 Melissa Goldin 2006-05-30 11:04:08 EDT
Corrected in:


Corrections committed for both 405 and 410.

Shannon, can we re-spin the 405 Satellite Guide as part of the 410 release?
Comment 2 Melissa Goldin 2006-06-07 14:45:09 EDT
Re-assigning to shughes for the next QA push
Comment 3 Shannon Hughes 2006-06-07 16:03:21 EDT
rebuild sat 405, moving to ondev
Comment 4 Mike McCune 2006-06-14 13:34:28 EDT
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
--permissive mode.
Comment 5 Melissa Goldin 2006-06-14 13:40:08 EDT
Confirmed with mmccune that this change only needs to be made to the 410 docs.
Comment 6 Melissa Goldin 2006-06-14 13:52:49 EDT
I've alerted Michelle Kim and the translation team of this change.

Correction made (un-made?) and committed to CVS.
Comment 7 Melissa Goldin 2006-06-20 10:53:02 EDT
Moving to ON_QA
Comment 8 Corey Welton 2006-06-21 10:48:08 EDT
QA Verified - release notes indicate that selinux must be disabled or in
permissive mode.
Comment 9 Beth Nackashi 2006-07-19 19:02:07 EDT
moving to closed - currentrelease
