Description Eduard Benes 2011-06-22 10:27:01 EDT
Description of problem:
Audit remote client gets disk_error event ack from the server when the disk is full on the server. This way the disk_error_action will be executed instead of configured disk_full_action.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. simulate full disk for audit.log to trigger disk_full_action
2. auditctl -m "we want to trigger disk_full_action"
Actual results:
disk_error_action is used instead of disk_full_action

Expected results:
disk_full_action shoudl be triggered as configured

Additional info:
I believe the problem is in write_to_log() function from src/auditd-event.c if statement (saved_errno == ENOSPC && fs_space_left == 1) where it fails on fs_space_left=0 and does not get to do_disk_full_action().
