Description Šimon Lukašík 2011-05-30 11:45:00 EDT
Description of problem:
Please include the following (or equivalent) in the documenation:

When using Satellite with SELinux enabled, if /var/satellite/ is
changed to an NFS mount after the initial installation, you must run the following command:

    /usr/sbin/setsebool -P spacewalk_nfs_mountpoint on

In addition, on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 you must run:

    /usr/sbin/setsebool -P cobbler_use_nfs on

Comment 2 Lana Brindley 2011-06-13 16:12:22 EDT
Slated for 5.4.2.

Comment 3 Lana Brindley 2011-10-24 23:45:50 EDT
I included this as an FAQ:

			I changed <filename>/var/satellite</filename> to an NFS mount, and now SELinux is stopping it working properly. What do I need to do?
			You will need to tell SELinux about the NFS mount in order for it to allow that traffic. You can do this with the command:
# /usr/sbin/setsebool -P spacewalk_nfs_mountpoint on
			If you are using &RHEL; 6, you will also need to run the command:
# /usr/sbin/setsebool -P cobbler_use_nfs on
