Description of problem:

Monitoring, scout config push never completes if SELinux is enforcing.
The *very* odd thing is that nothing is logged to the audit.log, so I guess it may *not* be a denial problem.  This is an odd bug and I am not quite sure what exactly is going on.

Turn SELinux to permissive:

setup monitoring:
1. Login as Sat admin
2. Enable Monitoring,  under Admin -> Spacewalk/RHN Configuration, check Enable Monitoring, click Update
3. Enable Monitoring Scout, under Admin -> Spacewalk/RHN Configuration -> Monitoring, check Enable Monitoring Scout, click Update Config
4. Restart Spacewalk/RHN Satellite
5. Make sure /etc/init.d/Monitoring is started
6. From the server, su - nocpulse, scp the .ssh/nocpulse-identity.pub root@client:/tmp 
7. This same key can also be found at Monitoring -> Scout Config Push -> RHN Monitoring Satellite

5. Register a client, enable monitoring on the client
6. Alter system channel membership to include RHN Network Tools
7. Install rhnmd package on client and do service rhnmd start.
8. On the client, su - nocpulse, cat /tmp/nocpulse-identity.pub >> /opt/nocpulse/.ssh/authorized_keys
8.1 (SAT 5.3 CHANGE) On the client, su - nocpulse, cat /tmp/nocpulse-identity.pub >> /var/lib/nocpulse/.ssh/authorized_keys
9. restart the rhnmd, /etc/init.d/rhnmd restart 

10. Go into the webui and push the scout config.
should work successfully.

Turn SELinux back on to enforcing
11. push the scout config again.

The scout config push never completes
Nothing is logged to audit.log
very odd...

Expected Results:
Either the scout config push works, OR we get a denial or message in audit.log
Comment 1 Miroslav Suchý 2009-04-10 04:33:45 EDT
can you please investigate this issue? I know that some events are not logged to audit.log, can you elaborate it?
Comment 2 Jan Pazdziora 2009-04-10 04:54:19 EDT
If there is nothing in audit.log, it's unlikely to be SELinux related.
Comment 3 Jan Pazdziora 2009-04-10 04:57:12 EDT
I just tried Scout push with spacewalk-monitoring-selinux-0.6.2-1 which fixes a couple of true SELinux bugs, and the push proceeds just fine, adding new probe, and the probe then starts to show the current state.

Please advise if you want the bugzilla back for general investigation or monitoring oddity, or if I should just move it ON_QA.
Comment 4 Miroslav Suchý 2009-04-10 05:28:48 EDT
OK. Please can you tried it again with new ISO? 
Jan - you can move it on ON_QA once new ISO will rolled out.
Comment 5 Jan Pazdziora 2009-04-15 03:16:36 EDT
Moving ON_QA, with the latest ISO Satellite-5.3.0-RHEL?-re20090414.0.
