Description Šimon Lukašík 2011-05-23 05:57:10 EDT
Description of problem:
RHN Satellite 5.4.1 Reference Guide references /tftpboot/ folder which is
not present on rhel6. In the section: ' SELinux Configuration'
there is:

    semanage fcontext -a -t public_content_t "/tftpboot/.*"

For Satellite on rhel6, documentation should mention the following instead:

    semanage fcontext -a -t public_content_t "/var/lib/tftpboot/.*"
    semanage fcontext -a -t public_content_t "/var/www/cobbler/images/.*"
Comment 1 Šimon Lukašík 2011-05-25 02:30:50 EDT
Correction: The last line, might not be listed in the documentation:

    semanage fcontext -a -t public_content_t "/var/www/cobbler/images/.*"

It is not essential for the Satellite use case. Additionally, it's
a same for rhel5. Where we have not mentioned it.
Comment 2 Šimon Lukašík 2011-05-25 06:44:12 EDT
This bug relies on a resolution of 707215 comment 6.
Comment 3 Jan Pazdziora 2011-05-25 08:43:54 EDT
Actually, the correct fix is to remove that semanage advice altogether. It is not needed nor useful.
Comment 5 Lana Brindley 2011-06-13 16:13:29 EDT
Slated for 5.4.2.

Comment 6 Jim Cromie 2011-06-13 16:39:27 EDT
its worth noting that syslinux-tftpboot puts its files in /tftpboot,
where theyre not reachable by tftp-server.

Is there any move towards using /srv/tftp ?
(an apparently emerging FHS standard loc)
Comment 7 Lana Brindley 2011-09-22 16:39:40 EDT
