Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 709100
Include information about nfs mount in the installation guide
Last modified: 2013-10-23 19:24:13 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
See also bug 708357.
Slated for 5.4.2.
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
