Description Steve Reichard 2010-05-06 17:37:34 UTC
Description of problem:

After installing RHN Sat 5.3 and starting to configure cobbler, I did a cobbler check. The out was:

[root@sat-vm resources]# cobbler check
The following potential problems were detected:
#0: you need to set some SELinux content rules to ensure cobbler works correctly in your SELinux environment, run the following: /usr/sbin/semanage fcontext -a -t public_content_t "/var/lib/tftpboot/.*" && /usr/sbin/semanage fcontext -a -t public_content_t "/var/www/cobbler/images/.*"
#1: since iptables may be running, ensure 69, 80, and 25151 are unblocked
#2: yum-utils need to be at least version 1.1.17 for reposync -l, current version is 1.1.16
#3: fencing tools were not found, and are required to use the (optional) power management features. install cman to use them
[root@sat-vm resources]# 

I think there may be a few problems with this. First relates to the semanage for the /var/lib/tftpboot directory. This does not exist. Even on another system which I've been using satellite, this directory has not been created.

Second, it recommends that yum-utils be upgraded to 1.1.17 but the required version is not available.

[root@sat-vm resources]# yum list yum-utils

yum-utils.noarch                                               1.1.16-13.el5                                               installed
