Description Dave Jones 2007-01-28 17:22:25 UTC
I had a raid5 set fail, and noticed two AVCs, which seem to have prevented root
from getting mail about the failure, which meant it went unnoticed for weeks..

type=AVC msg=audit(1170003945.248:7): avc:  denied  { read } for  pid=2771
comm="sendmail" name="md1" dev=tmpfs ino=7157
scontext=system_u:system_r:system_mail_t:s0
tcontext=system_u:object_r:fixed_disk_device_t:s0 tclass=blk_file
type=AVC msg=audit(1170003945.248:7): avc:  denied  { read } for  pid=2771
comm="sendmail" name="mdstat" dev=proc ino=4026532358
scontext=system_u:system_r:system_mail_t:s0
tcontext=system_u:object_r:proc_mdstat_t:s0 tclass=file

Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2007-01-29 18:51:43 UTC
I you sure these are not leaked file descriptors?  Why would the senmail
application want to read a fixed disk or proc_mdstat?

Comment 2 Dave Jones 2007-02-03 20:59:18 UTC
hmm, could be. I'm not sure where to start looking though, and as the raid array
has been reconstructed, it's not reproducable right now.


Comment 3 Doug Ledford 2007-05-18 00:15:05 UTC
This is actually an mdadm issue, not raidtools.  Changing component.
