Description Tobias 2011-08-05 15:45:39 UTC
pnp4nagios not working after steps from README.fedora have been done:

SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/perl from 'write' accesses on the directory /var/lib/pnp4nagios.

*****  Plugin catchall_labels (83.8 confidence) suggests  ********************

If you want to allow perl to have write access on the pnp4nagios directory
Then you need to change the label on /var/lib/pnp4nagios
Do
# semanage fcontext -a -t FILE_TYPE '/var/lib/pnp4nagios'
where FILE_TYPE is one of the following: tmp_t, nagios_log_t, nagios_tmp_t, var_spool_t, var_run_t, var_log_t, nagios_var_run_t, nagios_spool_t, root_t. 
Then execute: 
restorecon -v '/var/lib/pnp4nagios'


*****  Plugin catchall (17.1 confidence) suggests  ***************************

If you believe that perl should be allowed write access on the pnp4nagios directory by default.
Then you should report this as a bug.
You can generate a local policy module to allow this access.
Do
allow this access for now by executing:
# grep perl /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp

audit2allow

#============= nagios_t ==============
#!!!! This avc is allowed in the current policy

allow nagios_t var_lib_t:dir write;

audit2allow -R

#============= nagios_t ==============
#!!!! This avc is allowed in the current policy

allow nagios_t var_lib_t:dir write;



------------


Now works with the following module:

module nagiosown 1.0;

require {
	type nagios_t;
	type nagios_var_run_t;
	type var_lib_t;
	class dir { write create };
}

#============= nagios_t ==============
allow nagios_t nagios_var_run_t:dir create;
#!!!! The source type 'nagios_t' can write to a 'dir' of the following types:
# tmp_t, nagios_log_t, nagios_tmp_t, var_spool_t, var_run_t, var_log_t, nagios_var_run_t, nagios_spool_t, root_t

allow nagios_t var_lib_t:dir write;
